"After 40 years of cooking great food, I thought I would try this recipe. How can you ruin stroganoff? This was the worst we have ever tasted. ditch the paprika and add more beef flavor and more liquid. This recipe is awful."

"turned out really good. I probably added a bit more salt & left out the cayenne for my kids. I also used a small can of mushrooms for my son who doesn't care for them too much. Served with mashed potatoes & brussel sprouts. Will definately double the recipe next time."
