This recipe needed several modifications to get past the 'bland and dry' complaints. Saute' the onions with the meat. Add extra bouillon and water (or beef broth), a few shakes of Worstershire, a couple of tablespoons of Dijon, cut the sour cream to l cup, add 1/2 can of mushroom soup and 1/2 can white wine. Definitely worth 5 stars with modifications, my husband thought it was terrific.

I've made this twice. The first time, I felt that it came out a weird grey color, was slightly bland and was too soupy. I modified it the second by just changing around the ingredients a little. First, I added a cube and a half boullion instead of just one. I also tossed in a couple of diced garlic cloves and some garlic salt and a couple dashes of cayenne. The major difference was that I used a half a can of cream of chicken and mushroom soup, which I added half of over the heat (when the onions were translucent) and let it cook into the meat. Then added 1/2 pint of sour cream (instead of the full pint)when I took it off of the heat, then added the rest of the half can of soup. Made it a nice beef stroganoff color, and it had a bit more depth to the flavor. The second time around there were no leftovers. :)

It came out ok, but next time I will add the entire pint of sour cream. I only used half because of reviews I read and it was like putting seasoned ground beef over pasta. No sauce at all!! I also added two cubes of beef buillon to the water when cooking the pasta, and had to add 1/4 cup of milk,two tablespoons of worcestchire sauce, and 3 dissolved cubes of beef buillon to the meat mixture for flavor. I now see why some said this dish was very bland. Adding these things helped. I will make this again, but you really have to adjust the spices to make it taste good.

I made several changes to the recipe the second time, by adding more garlic, salt, and peper, and I also added approx. a cup of water and a tablespoon of flour to give it a gravy we dunked our rolls in. My husband and I thought it was good the second time, but my daughter only liked the noodles.

I have to say that not one person in my family of four liked this. We are sour cream lovers but even this ws WAY too sour creamy. Maybe if I had put half the sour cream it wouldn't be so bad, but my family made me promise never to make this again so I can't even try... :(

This recipe was really quick to throw together - which is nice. My husband & I both enjoyed it, but we agreed that it was almost too sour-creamy. Next time, I'll probably cut it back to about 3/4 of the container & dilute it with a litte more beef broth.

This recipe was pretty good. My husband isn't a big sour cream fan, so I added a can of cream of mushroom to it and a lot more garlic and salt and pepper to season it up a bit. All in all, a good hearty meal. Thanks for sharing it Missy.

This recipe is fast, easy and good tasting. I was a bit confused about the amount of beef bouillon to use. I used about 1/2 the amount in about 1/4 cup of water to help dilute the thickness of the sourcream.
