This was very good- my family loved it. Because I used extra meat and because I love the flavor from the wine I used a good cup or so of it. I don't think I'd consider the wine optional in this recipe since it's what makes it special. Also another reviewer mentioned that they subbed cream of mushroom for the golden mushroom soup. That might do in a pinch but they are very different things- I think the golden mushroom is more like a gravy. Thanks for this recipe Amber- it was very very good. Read More

This was yummy! I used fresh sliced mushrooms so I added enough beef broth to cover everything. I served it over egg noodles and it was a hit. Read More

Excellent! I added a large carton of sour cream to make it more like stroganoff. Read More

We really REALLY loved this! I can't believe that these few ingredients produced such a delicious comforting meal. The meat literally melted in our mouths YUM! I served this over mashed potatoes but think it would be equally as good with rice or egg noodles. This is a definate keeper! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This was fantastic with just a few tweaks. I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned and used 1/2 cup red wine to make up for the liquid missing from the mushrooms. The fresh mushrooms really make the difference and so does the wine...I don't recommend leaving it out. Also added a cup of reduced sodium broth to cover the meat but that made it a tad too salty so I will use water next time or a mix of broth and water. We don't even like mushrooms that much but this was super easy and delicious and the meat was very tender. I served it over egg noddles and even my 4-yr old who hates everything ate some. Read More

I followed the directions exactly looking for a new way to make beef stew. It was ok. The flavor was a little bland even with adding wine. It just tasted like cream of golden mushroom and not much else. Read More
