Reviews for Hamburger Stroganoff for Two
"We love this! Although I do cut the lemon juice just a little."
"One of four thought it was good.One said it was "okay"Two didn't like it at all.Too sour for out liking."
"Needed worcestershire sauce and bay leaves and paprika"
"The lemon juice was way too strong. If you make this dish you might want to consider using just salt and pepper or no more than a tablespoon of lemon juice."
