This smelled divine while cooking, tasted really good and didn't take long to make. I like the layered serving approach, it kept the flavours distinct. I always use low sodium broth but for this recipe I had to salt it just a little. I added fresh garlic and used a dry sherry. I didn't have any almonds so I'll have to try them next time. One correction I have is for step 5. you'll have better luck using cold water to mix your cornstarch in (warm water is better for flour mixtures).

This was wonderful! I chose this as part of the Recipe Bargain Basement game, and I was so happy with it. I used rib-eye steak, and all I added was a half tsp of salt, 2 tsp of garlic powder, and 1 tsp of onion powder. Great blend of flavors.

I thought this was good, although a bit bland for my taste. I added salt, but I wish I had also added garlic and onion. It was nearly impossible to dissolve cornstarch in hot water, as directed, so I used cold. It worked like a charm. Otherwise, I followed directions closely, served with a green salad and french bread, and had myself a very gratifying meal.

I eliminated steps 6 and 7, and combined all the ingredients like you're really supposed to. I also used cream of mushroom soup to make it quick. Perfect! Will make again with my corrections.

I made this recipe for some Russian friends of mine. They loved it and asked me for the recipe. I used london broil for the meat and added chopped, fresh garlic and fresh dill. It was great and so easy.

Recipe was made as directed, with the exception of the almonds (just didn't want them in there). Dish was very tasty, but even I needed to add some salt to it. I would have thought the beef stock would have given enough salty flavor, but it didn't. Still, I will probably make this again.
