Ingredients for Easy Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff

What is the best cut of meat for this recipe?
The store sells pre-cubed beef stew meat, but I don't recommend purchasing the diced meat. Often times its not the best cut of meat. Here's what I recommend:
- sirloin steak - an affordable cut and you can easily dice the beef and remove the fat
- chuck roast - well-marbled, just trim off the fat
- brisket - great flavor and the longer it's simmered the more tender it gets.
- rump roast - another great affordable cut
