    Very tasty, but next time I’ll probably add a bit more seasoning.

    It’s not bland by any means, my family just eats a lot of spicy foods so we’ve broken our taste receptors. Definitely something I’d recommend to friends. 10/10 OP!

  2. Could you use ground turkey instead of ground beef? Excited to try it but no ground beef available at our nearest stores and I’ve got some turkey I need to use.

    1. Absolutely Liz, you can substitute Turkey and even ground chicken for the beef. Hope this helps.

  3. I finally decided to to give stroganoff a try and found your recipe. My boyfriend ate two bowls and wanted more but was stuffed! Is the sauce freezer friendly?

    1. Hi Helen! I am so glad he liked it.. it’s one of my favorites too 🙂 Yes, you can freeze it. Transfer it to a large ziplock bag, squeeze out any excess air and pop it in your freezer. When you need it, remove it from the freezer and either let it thaw in the fridge or transfer it to a cooking pan and reheat over medium/medium-high heat until warm. Enjoy!

    Your stroganoff looks fantastic! Although I love mushrooms my sons do not, so I’m so happy I’ve come across this mushroomless recipe!

    Simple, fast version of a classic dish – just right for a weeknight dinner! OK, so I admit, I am a mushroom fan – but it’s easier for me to add them than for you to remove them! LOL

    Your version of beef stroganoff sounds especially delicious! No yucky cream of mushroom soup here. I love the fresh real ingredients. More wholesome and flavorful. I’ll pin this one for later.

    I totally love mushrooms, although my other half , like you, can’t stand the texture of them. He always says that the idea of eating ‘fungus’ puts him off 🙂 He’s a fussy eater! Anyway, your version of stroganoff looks great, that sauce looks so creamy, I will happily eat it, even knowing there are no mushrooms in it!
