We love this. It's a quick and tasty mid week meal that doesnt need too much 'looking after'. I also use smoked paprika and use 50% more mushrooms to increase the portion size.

This was very very good.! Although I didn't do it as per receipe as I didn't have any Worcester sauce .Added a little more paprika and used a chicken stock cube and double cream instead. It is a cheap meal to make which is an added bonus! Will definately be making this again .

This was a very tasty recipe, but must admit after reading other comments, did tweak it a bit as per another comment. Substituted steeping stock from porcini mushrooms and added smoked paprika. Had only soya cream, so added that and the result was excellent. Will definitely be making this again . Thank you to other reviewers for your suggestions.

Made again tonight and changed recipe a little. First time, found it a bit bland and unintersting. Steeped a small handful of dried porcini mushrooms and used steeping liquid as 'stock'. Used smoked paprika and an extra tablespoon of Worcester sauce. Had a little fresh tarragon, so added that as well as parsley. Used creme fraiche. Served with vacuum packed sachet of Mushroom steamed Basmati rice. Delicious. Will make again with these changes.

This is a really good recipe. I had a mixture of vegetarian and meat eating people, so I made the mushroom stroganoff using red wine rather than Worcester sauce (couldn't find a veggie alternative). I served it with Pappardelle rather than rice with lightly cooked, buttered green beans and for the meat eaters I cooked some steaks which went with it beautifully. It was very successful and I am just about to do the same again this evening. One hint, I found that I had to use more mushrooms than the recipe listed. For those vegetarians, without the steak, it wouldn't have been enough for four. But it is truly delicious!

Lovely dish was pleasantly surprised. I have made it twice now, once with just wild mushroom and the next time with wild mushrooms and sirloin steak. Always goes down a treat

Just made this with beef stock. Used creme fraiche instead of sour cream and served on toasted ciabatta instead of rice. Absolutely delicious.

Really tasty, made this last minute to use up mushrooms. Used creme fraiche and vegetable bullion.

Delicious! Made on a whim, left out the parsley as I had none but was fantastic! Definitely will make again...

Me too Jemma35! Might give it a go with beef too but the mushroom one was lovely!
