Review This Recipe
I've never really liked beef stroganoff because I always felt the sour cream flavor was too strong. I hated the typical recipe that included a can of mushroom soup and a cup of sour cream. This recipe turned out fabulous and I recomended to my friends.
I had never made this dish before and I was a little nervous since my husband & son can be picky eaters. The only thing I had to worry about was doubling the recipe the next time around because we all LOVED it!!
Great Home Made Dish
This dish was very easy and rewarding to make. I don't cook much from scratch, so watching it all come together was exciting. Note to the wise, unless you really LOVE black pepper, you might want to scale it down a bit; my lips and nose were on fire! Other than that, I make it again and again!
you have got to try this recipe, its ABFAB!!!!
I made this 2 nights ago with just a few additions, I added a little tomato paste ,some red wine , fresh mushrooms and garlic it was so good there where no left overs! I will make this over and over for years to come!
Quick & Easy
I love this recipe. I was a little scared of making it at first because i'm not a big stroganoff person but it was delicious. It took me about 20 minutes to prepare because i used all fresh vegetables so it took few extra minutes. I did the rest and I was done cooking dinner early. I never have dinner done before my wife comes home because I can never find anything quick because she's pickey.
A Definite Keeper!
My husband and I both enjoyed this easy recipe. So much so, that we only had enough leftovers for one serving. Minced garlic was the only ingredient that I added. I may try stretching the gravy by adding some cream of mushroom soup or doubling the stroganoff part. Either way, it was very good.
This was a really nice dish - I doubled it so I could freeze leftovers, and added several pressed cloves of garlic and a package of frozen chopped spinach to the doubled amount... made for a very nice, very easy dinner. I'll definitely use this recipe again.
This was a quick and easy meal. I doubled the recipe because my husband eats a lot. I would definitely make it again.
Mmm Mmm Good
This was excellent. I used beef tenderloin and added a bit more sour cream. I also substituted a 1/2 can of cream of mushroom soup instead of fresh mushrooms since I don't like mushrooms. It was a big hit!!
Very good and easy
This was a quick and easy way for me to serve leftover steak. My kids loved it and my husband had seconds.
This is very yummy a definite repeat.... The best stroganoff I have ever had!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wonderful recipe for everyone; Simple enough for a novice and at the same time allows for adjustments. I worked my way through Med School cooking in a Country Club. The end result is every bit as good as the recipe our chef used and takes a fraction of the time to make.
excellent and easy
Very good and easy recipe, however adding--1/2 cup water/1/4 cup sherry gives it more zip!
I think this was a quick easy recipe for stroganoff, but I would suggest adding a little more seasonings for it is a little bland. But all in all it is a great meal!
Fast and Fabulous!
This stroganoff recipe is easy to make and is absolutely delicious. I added the onion and garlic and substituted olive oil for the vegetable oil, as well. I also used a little steak seasoning while cooking the steak. This meal makes your house smell great while you're cooking:)
Kudos to Cynthia too!
The Stroganoff was wonderful with the moderations!
While the recpie was very easy to make and took no time at all, we found it to be very bland and without any flavor whatsoever.
Kudos to Cynthia
I followed Cynthia from AZ suggestions and the dish was superb! Thanks for the great ideas...my family loved it!
It just needs this....
I sauteed the onions and sure puree of galic in the oil with the meat also use "meat magic" when you are browning the meat to taste.... this dish comes out perfectly!!!!! My husband ate everything besides the one plate I got!! and he has asked me to make this again and again. It is super easy too.
I made a few changes
This recipe is 10 times better with these variations:
use stew meat boiled in water with 2 beef bouillon cubes and 1/2 c of white zinfandel for 2 hours. Tear meat up and set aside; use olive oil instead of vegetable oil; sautee onions and mushrooms in the oil. When golden brown, add flour, then meat and pepper.Add 1/2 c of white zinfandel and 1/2 c of water. Add 3 bouillon cubes, boil till dissolved. Take off burner and add 1/3 c sour cream. Now, this is a 5 star meal !

For those of you that complained of lack of taste, try a better cut of meat. Also, try adding more than 1 bullion cube. And of course, you can add more pepper, maybe sautee garlic and onions in the oil prior to browning the meat.
I'm speechless.......All I can say is this is an outstanding dish!!!!!!!!
This recipe had no flavor whatsoever. I even took the advice of another reviewer and used incredibly seasoned meat. There was still not much flavor. I will not be making this again.
Not all that great
This recipe was ok, the beef had no taste to it and the sauce wasn't flavorful enough to give it any taste. I would recommend seasoning the meat with something that would probably make a big difference. Don't think I'd make this again
My mom used to make stroganoff when I was a kid and this dish took me back. I made it just as the recipie called for and it was a great taste!
This was a really tasty quick meal!
