Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

I am the first to admit that I am not a Beef Stroganoff kind of girl.  I make it for the hubby, because he likes it and life is easier when he is happy.  This recipe happens to be easy (Hello....slowcooker!) and according to the hubs, delicious.  I hope that you and your family ENJOY!

2 -3 pounds stew meat
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups beef broth or stock
1 tbs. ketchup
1/3 cup all purpose flour
6-7 tbs. apple juice or water
4-8 ounces sliced mushrooms (I like baby bellas)
1/2 cup light or regular sour cream

*  Put the stew meat, onion, salt, and pepper in the slow cooker.  Stir to distribute seasoning.  
*  In  a small bowl, combine beef broth, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic salt.  Pour over the meat. 
*  Cook on low for 7-9 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.  
*  Thirty minutes before serving, combine apple juice/water and flour in a small bowl with whisk.  The roux will be thick but should still be pourable.  If it is too thick, add a tablespoon of apple juice/water until it is pourable.  Add roux to the slow cooker and whisk vigorously to avoid lumps.  
*  Add the mushrooms and stir.  
*  Cook on high for 30 minutes more.  
*  Right before serving, stir in sour cream.
