I must say I don't understand why people insist on making their own recipes and then rating them. If I like 6 pounds of bacon fat and a cup of sand in my stroganoff, then rate the recipe a 5, how does that help anyone? I made this recipe as-is first. Gave it about a 3. Keep in mind this is a stroganoff recipe, not a mushroom sauce. Funny how many people cut back on the sour cream, then say the recipe is bland. When I tried the recipe first, I started with 1/2 c sour cream per suggestions and found it just tasted like mushroom sauce. So i added in the rest. Much better. It's stroganoff guys! Sour cream is a big part of it! When I made it again, I did try many user suggestions. I actually (my own idea) used half an onion, 2 shallots, and 2 cloves garlic. Also did 1/2 cup wine and 1 cup broth. Added a full pound of mushrooms, and after cooking them, added the wine, broth, etc., straight to the mushrooms without removing them from the pan. Also added a few dashes of soy and worcestershire, salt, white pepper and thyme to the sauce. Pretty much tried every suggestion made here. Even after all that, I can't give this more than 3 stars. There is a tang missing and I'm not sure what it is. Have seen some sights mentioning mustard and tomato paste, so might try that next time. Not a bad dish either way, but by no means a favorite.
