Amazing Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

I found this recipe via Pinterest from The Crockstar. It is absolutely delicious!
2 pounds cubed stew meat 2 cans Condensed Golden Mushroom Soup 1 largish onion diced 2-3-4 tabls of Worcestershire 1/2 water 8 oz of cream cheese couple of dashes of Garlic Salt couple dashes of Hot Paprika In the slow cooker stir in all the ingredients, except the meat AND the Cream Cheese, together. Once combined add the meat and mix together. Cook on Low for 8 hours. Cut up the cream cheese into cubes just before serving and turn crockpot on high. Stir the cream cheese in until all combined. You might have to put the lid back on and leave for 10 minutes. Serve over egg noodles. This is just amazing! Also if you have not discovered Pinterest, let me know and I will send you an invite.
