I love quick dinners that take less than 30 minutes from start to finish. This is one of those meals. It might even be closer to 20 minutes or less. We have been having this meal a lot lately, because life has been a bit crazy, so it’s great to know I can count on this easy meal. And with the exception of my super picky son, my husband, daughter & I all inhale this dish.

I typically use beef broth for this recipe, but when I received a jar of Mushroom Base from Superior Touch, I knew I had to use it on this recipe. I actually don’t like mushrooms. It’s a texture thing, but I do love the flavor that they provide. When I opened the jar of mushroom base, the aroma was amazing! It was condensed yumminess that I could not wait to try!

My husband recognized the amazing flavor that it gave to this meal right away! He said that it was the best stroganoff I have made yet! I felt the same way! I have always been fond of Better Than Bouillon. We used it frequently in a restaurant I worked in. We even used it when I was in Culinary school, so I am very familiar with how rich & flavorful it makes broth. I use the chicken base in a lot of meals like: Quick Sausage Jambalaya, Sausage Tomato Tortellini Soup, Honey Glazed Carrots, Zuppa Toscana, Chicken Pot Pie Crumble & Hawaiian Haystacks, to name a few.

It’s extremely versatile! Now I can experiment more with this mushroom base, because if it made this stroganoff absolutely amazing, I know it can make other recipes incredible as well. If you haven’t tried Superior Touch’s Better Than Bouillon premium food bases, then there is something wrong with you! Really! Nothing compares to the flavor profile you get using these bases. They are only $3.44 a jar at my Wal-Mart so they’re incredibly inexpensive for a really flavorful & easy to use product (just add HOT [boiling] water.)  I urge you to pick up a jar & try it for yourself. Start with this recipe or one of the recipes I mentioned above; or any favorite family recipe you have that uses broth. Do it! You know you want to!
