I hate to contradict all the good reviews, but to me this tasted more like a McDonald's cheeseburger than Stroganoff. Maybe it is just personal preference, but it ended up tasting like the sauce was made of ketchup for us, and the pickles distracted from the high quality meat. If I were making this for kids, I think it would work. But for my husband and me, just not what we like.
The only change I made was not to add the onin due to intolerance reasons otherwise made as per recipe with veal but for us is was missing something in a stroganoff (unfortuanely but as per usual my sour cream split and as we were eating the DH suggest I use full fat sour cream instead of the usual light and see whats happens, otherwise tasted really god and served with bow-tie pasta and had a salad on the side.
I made this tonight for dinner and it was absolutely lovely. I made it pretty much exactly as written except I added a bit more paprika for personal taste and I used swiss brown mushrooms and quartered them instead of slicing as I think it gives a better texture to the dish. This stroganoff has a real lovely flavour creaminess to it and not overpowering like some stroganoff's can me.
My DH doesn't like beef stroganoff at all. I made this tonight and he actually liked it! (Had something to do with pickles being good in anything haha). Definitely added to our list of recipes to keep!
Stuff authentic, this is just the way my mum made it and I've been desperate to find the recipe for ages! I've never added pickle before but I loved it. Had it over pasta, next time will try mash or rice just for fun! Thanks!
Served a top of wide egg noodles this made for a delicous dinner! I skipped on the dill pickles but otherwise made as directed. A quick n easy mid week meal, thanks for sharing.
This was awesome. I am always generous with spices. Great.
Great recipe. I usually make a different stroganoff so this was a nice change of pace. I was told that this was the preferred one. I served this on rice as thats what we like. We all really liked the pickles in this. It gave the recipe that sharp taste every so often....great recipe....thank you so much.....Stephanie
I've used this recipe often and DH always raves about it. It's a good basic recipe that is easy to tinker with and always tastes yummy. Last time I ran out of red wine and used Beer instead and it was great. Thanks, Jan!
Brilliant recipe - simple but so tasty. This one is going in the keep file.
