Has pretty good flavor. I used ground beef instead of beef sirloin because it was all I had but it still worked well. Read More

This recipe? Bland and blander... I tried the 1/2 cream of mushroom 1/2 golden mushroom combination. I added a bit of Worcestershire sauce (as some reviewers suggested). I'm really unsure how this recipe has so many positive reviews. Maybe it's me. Read More

I used left over Tri-tip added sliced fresh mushrooms and about 2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce and I used a can of Golden Mushroom soup instead of the Cream of Mushroom Soup. Very tasty! Came together in no time and it's a great left-over make-over recipe!!! No one in the family will eat left-overs so I have to be cleaver and disguise left-overs and turn them into something new. This fooled everyone at the table no one suspected that I used left-over Tri-tip in this dish. I'm so sneaky: ) Read More

Very yummy and oh so quick and easy! First batch was a little thick; I think next time I will add water or beef broth until it's a preferred consistency. Will definitely make this again and again. Read More

My husband loved this dish! I only gave it four because I modified it slightly: I doubled the reciped I substituted ground beef for the round steak (but I only used just a little over a pound) I didn't add the flour I added 1/4 c. of milk (it would have been too thick) and I used cavatappi instead of egg noodles. Much easier to handle and the sauce clung very well to them. All in all a good recipe I will try it again but I'll add some fresh sauteed mushroom some peas and possibly substitute roasted chicken for the beef! Read More

I would give 3 1/2 to 4 stars for the flavor but combined with the ease to make that definitely bumps it up to a 5 star recipe. I make with frozen meatballs for a super fast meatball stroganoff that's ready to eat in under 20 mins! Read More

This also works with ground beef or ground turkey. I also add a dash of worchestershire and a little dried basil and if it's too thick a little beef broth. If I have it I like to add a cup or so of sliced fresh mushrooms when I saute the onion. It's a lot like the SOS that I grew up with as a kid. It's great over mashed potatoes or fresh fluffy biscuits. Read More

Tasty and east version of the classic. I skipped the sour cream as I had none but it would have been better if I had added it. Still a yummy dish. The round steak took forever to get tender though. I simmered it in beef stock and it cooked for nearly an hour! Read More

This was very easy to make and tasted great. The only change I made was I used ground turkey instead of beef strips. Will make again. Read More
