Reviews forHearty Beef Stroganoff
"I made the mistake of backing off on the tomato paste, and reducing the amount of sour cream based on a couple of the reviews. As a result the taste was kind of bland. Next time I'll follow the recipe."
"My family loved this recipe, but I think I added too much tomato paste, which threw the taste off slightly. The sherry definitely added to the flavor of the dish. I would make this in the future."
"This is my go-to meal whenever I have a special guest over."
"THIS RECIPE IS AMAZING"
"Delicious with left over pot roast."
"I've been making it with hamburger instead. Faster to make. I make it in bulk and then use a food saver to freeze it. Great for when I'm to busy to cook, drop it into a pot of boiling water and make rice."
"I used stew meat. Once I had the meat browned and the sauce made, I put it in a 200 degree oven for 4 1/2 hours. I added the sour cream and sherry once I took it out of the oven. I 1 1/2 the sauce and it seemed like there was a lot of sauce for 1 lb. of meat. I also had to thicken the sauce with cornstarch. I'm sure that was because I made it in the oven and not the stove top. It was good, but not anything out of the ordinary."
"Turned out pretty well. I left out the butter and used leftover meat I had from a roast. I also did the 1.5 recipe for the sauce as suggested; like that, it covered a whole bag of egg noodles. I'm not sure if that much sauce was totally necessary, but it did make it stretch. I didn't love the sherry flavor, but I'm not a big fan of it anyways."
"My family loves this dish, the only thing that I do different is not cook the meat all of the way at first, then saute the mushrooms and onions by themselves, then I make the sauce with out the meat and veggies. I also double the sauce if not 3 times since we use 1.5 lbs of meat."
