Hamburger Stroganoff for Two

I've been making this simple yet satisfying dish for more than 25 years," relates Aline Christenot of Chester, Montana. "Just last year, I tried freezing the ground beef mixture so I'd have a head start on a future dinner. It works great!"

    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.
