This has to be the best Stroganoff on earth. I did add 1 can cream of mushroom an upped the sour cream to 3/4 and the mayo down to a 1/4. This is so fast and simple to make let alone awesome. This is a must try! Thanks for this one it will definitely get used and passed on!

Apart from using fresh mushrooms, I made this as the recipe stated, and it was thin, bland and watery. So, I added a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup, some more garlic powder, lots of black pepper, several good sloshes of Worcestershire sauce, and a little more mustard powder. The result was much better! This is a great basic recipe, but it *does* need some modification. Thanks!

i don't understand the negative reviews here. obviously, this is not a gourmet recipe. but it is quick and filling comfort food that also happens to taste great, and is very easy to modify a bit here and there to suit your tastes. after i browned the beef, i rinsed it once to help eliminate grease. i browned the onions and mushrooms separately in a little butter, and i think that helped the flavor a lot. i increased the garlic powder a bit, and added a few dashes of dried dill. i decreased the mayo and increased the sour cream. also added just a bit of worchestershire sauce. although it doesn't look too spectacular, it tastes yummy!

With a splash of worchesteshire, 12 oz. of sour cream, and less mayo...this recipe is very good. (It can get tangy if you use Miracle whip. I used Hellman's). I didn't think it was bland at all. It tasted exactly like I expected stroganoff to taste, only better!

This was yummy! I omitted the beef broth and used condensed cream of mushroom soup instead of just mushrooms. (I like my stroganoff thick!) I also added extra garlic powder and some basil. We ate leftovers for lunch the next day! Even my husband liked it!

Added add'l sour cream, lots of salt and pepper and dried parsley (to taste), which flavored the dish wonderfully without overpowering it. A great trick: since you only need 1/2 cup of beef broth, use the rest of the can in the water you boil the noodles in to add extra flavor - I ONLY USED 6 OZ EGG NOODLES - PERFECT AMOUNT!

Glad I checked previous reviews first so I knew what I was expecting. Bland, thin sauce and not enough of it. I added about 1T. worcestshire sauce, 1 T. vermouth,1t.yellow mustard, a few shakes of paprika, s&p, more sour cream and about 3/4 can of crm of mushroom soup.MMMMM now that's a ground beef stroganoff I can serve my husband and 18yr. old son!

YUMMY! The whole family loved this recipe. I used 1 1/2lbs of ground beef, so I just increased the sour cream and the mayo to make more sauce. My kids HATE mushrooms, so I just chopped them up really fine, and put them in with the ground beef, and they never even knew that they were in there. Easy, fast and CHEAP. Bet this meal didn't even cost $2.00 per person!
