"Good for a quick meal. I used ground beef & white wine vinegar since that's what I had on hand. I also use "Better than Bouillon" instead of regular bouillon."

"this is excellent to serve to company. Prepare ahead, then heat & pour over noodles. Cut beef in bite-size pieces, more tender.letting it sit in sauce tenderizes & soaks in the flavors."

"This was amazing. It is creamy, savory, and a little tart. I used a couple tablespoons of beef stock instead of bouillon cubes, and didn't realize until halfway through cooking I only had red cooking wine instead of red wine vinegar, but I don't think either of these two substitutes changed the recipe much. I loved it so much I ended up eating some of the left overs for breakfast the next morning."

"This was really good! I didn't have any mushrooms and it was still lucious, although would have been better with. I only had 3-4 oz. of sour cream so I added that and 4 oz of cream cheese. That was wonderful. This recipe will be replacing my old stroganoff recipe."

"Have made this dozens of times and used many cuts of beef. I prefer to leave the beef pink in step 1 as it cooks more when added back in. Fresh mushrooms & fresh squeezed lemon make it fabulous! This is better than any restaurant version and the leftovers are awesome!"

"I make this recipe at the fire station and have never had a single complaint. Everyone loves it! I try to use a good grade of sirloin tips from the meat counter instead of stew meat. It is very tangy. The lemon and rice vinegar are the key ingredients here. I always use baby bella mushrooms as well. I serve it over rice or egg noodles with cooked carrots and salad and rolls. YUM!"

"My DH loves this recipe. I make it special just for the two of us as our kids won't eat mushrooms (more for us!) Stroganoff was a very popular food in his home growing up so I am so grateful TOH had this recipe. This is thick & creamy. MIL's recipe was runny. I like this one much better. I do leave out the vinegar. We don't miss it."

"Love this recipe! My kids gag at the sight of mushrooms so I use about three times the amount called for in the recipe in wide variety

and cut them in half. Then,just before adding the sour cream I set aside their portion and take out the mushrooms. The kids love the flavor and my husband and I enjoy the extra mushrooms."
