  • You are right this does no look like ground beef. First thing that turned me off was cooking it in the Micro Wave. I think whom ever did this receipe has never eaten ground beef after it has been cooked in the Micro. I to use strips of steak in my Stroganoff. I do like the consept of this receipe and would make it to use in other casserole dishes, but I would cook it on the stove. Sounds like something that would freeze well and then it can be defrosted in the micro in a pinch.

  • Please read this again...Beef Mix will make 6 main dish recipes of 4 servings.
    It makes 6 main dish recipes of 4 servings each, or at least that is how I read it. So really that's only a pound of beef for 4 people. but it's enough for 6 meals.

  • Think the picture is of Stroganoff in general, not the one they are writing about. Have seen the picture used in a couple of recipes

  • Who ever heard of carrots, celery, or bell peppers in beef stroganoff?! And that beef doesn't look ground to me, either. I prefer using bite-size chunks of round steak myself, but either way, a bit of worcestershire sauce helps to tang it up a bit!

  • 1. I would leave out the salt.
    2. It looks like a leftover roast beef. but the ingredients sound like it would be a good meal.
