"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."

"This was delicious. Definitely a keeper. I used a tablespoon of Malbec instead of red wine vinegar, which probably added to its superbness."
