Turkey Salisbury Steak
This was very good. I used 2 - 16 oz packages of ground turkey. If I were to use 1-1/2 Lbs I think it would be a little too salty. Thanks for the very good recipe. Good way to use the ground turkey which is on sale often - $2 per lb! I served with mashed potatoes, corn and salad. Will use again!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup
Excellent flavor! The flavors remind me very much of my hungarian goulash. My suggestions are to skip the salt at the end, use hungarian paprika, skip the flour (doesn't need it with the milk and sour cream) and possibly add ground beef, tiny meatballs, stewing beef or chicken plus a handful or two of cooked rice for a complete meal. We like our protein. A salad and bread wouldn't cut it, and we're gluten free.

Sesame Beef
Thank you! I read reviews and reduced sugar by 25% and added a few shakes of red pepper flakes. I also did not have sesame seeds but did have sesame oil, so substituted 1/2 of the oil with sesame oil. I imagine this duplicated the flavor. Added fresh green beans at the end, although any fresh veggie would do. Yes, round steak can be a little tough and needs longer simmering for tenderness.
