I have followed dozens of recipes for this dish and have combined the things I like from some and left out some stuff from others to perfect this dish.

"I love Stroganoff, and this recipe was good. Easy to make with ingreadients I had in the house. Except I was short on the amount of sour cream I had in the fridge. My sauce was looking pretty thick, (plus I had more than a pound of meat), so I added about 1/2 can mushroom soup and a few table spoons of milk to get to the right consistancy. Then I always add a couple splashes of white wine to my stroanoff. Thank you. It pleased my whole family."

This is my finished product. We had a nice glass of chardonnay with it. It was absolutely delicious.


This was so good. Used Baby Bella Mushrooms!

I added one of those double bouillon cubes instead of a regular sized one and it came out great anyway

I love your recipe specifically because it is not bland. The addition of the nutmeg, Worchester, and bacon make your Stroganoff delish! I make this twice a month in the winter.

Delicious recipe! A few of the reviewers complained about the fact that it is fairly bland, and I found the same thing-ive learned from another stroganoff recipe that the solution to this is red wine and ketchup. I know it sounds weird but try small amounts and work your way up, according to your own tastes. It will give the sauce more body and depth. Yum!

I'm making it now and it isn't bland at all. If it's bland, then it probably wasn't properly seasoned! I used Freddie's seasoned salt and a great red and black pepper blend from Penzey's spices. Very delicious! - swims58 5m ago

Good recipe. Didn't add nutmeg. But still came out yummy

I didn't realize I was almost out of sour cream, but this tastes amazing with only a couple spoonfuls! I don't think I'm gonna share tonight. I did add more of the season salt and nutmeg. I learned a long time ago to season to our taste. First time ever making stroganoff and I believe it's going to be a hit and on our menu rotation! Thank you.
