You'd never guess this creamy, full-flavored Stroganoff is actually light! It's very meaty and features a thick tomato sauce that makes it look so impressive.—Rebecca Baird, Salt Lake City, Utah

"I first used this recipe to use up leftover beef pot roast. It was great! It was a very unique recipe! I left out the mushrooms and used butter instead of oil. 14 oz. of beef broth is about 1 3/4 cups. The beef I used was probably a little over a pound- because it easily served our family of 6. I would suggest cooking about 4-5 cups of medium egg noodles to serve 6 people."

"I was sceptical, but it was really yummy! I added a little extra worcestershire sauce for more flavor, and added a touch more broth as it began to thicken more than I like.

My husband turned up his nose at it until he tasted it "WOW! This is really good!" :)"
