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!

Thank you so much for linking up with me this week at Tasty Tuesdays! I’ve pinned this & shared it with my followers!

I’m sad. Something’s wrong with me… I have seen these and almost bought them but I didn’t. Now I will pick one up. They looked good I just didn’t spend the extra. Your stroganoff looks so good. I don’t know if I could get any one else to eat it, I will have to make it for lunch one day because I like it. On my husbands mission his companion made him eat really nasty stroganoff made with canned meat of some unknown source and I can’t get him to even try it now. I’ll let him miss out and I’ll eat it!

Oh man, that stinks! Well, you can always reduce the recipe & make it for one 🙂
We had this for dinner tonight and it was so good! Def brought back memories of when my mom used to make hamburger helper! Both kids are it, even Elliot, and we had it with steamed broccoli. It only took 30 minutes to make. I think next time it will be less because I won’t be reading the instructions as intently.
Yay! That sounds like a great success! Thanks for coming back to let me know!
This looks amazing! By the way I just read your comment about your bouquet. I would have been so sad too!
Mmmm sounds divine! I’ve never heard of Better Than Bouillon before. I’ll have to look for it next time I’m at Wal-Mart! Thanks for sharing!
I have been craving ground beef and this meal will definitely help satisfy that craving! We will definitely have this next week….and jealous that Brielle will eat ground beef! I wish Elliot were a better dinner eater!
Well, Brielle has been an amazing eater compared to Parker. He hates ground beef, so he just eats the noodles & sauce from this one.
Calling all mushroom haters, this is a must try! I have a mushroom hater but he loves this recipe! We typically do thin steak or stew meat, it’s to die for!
I’m so glad you and your family are enjoying this recipe Kelly!
This looks good. I made stroganoff this week and just used a can of cream of mushroom soup as always, and, as always, thought there has to be some better way to make it. I like the Better than Bouillon line but have only ever used the chicken and veggie bases. I will try the mushroom for sure now. Thanks!
Also, if you are really in a pinch for time, I love Trader Joe’s meatballs instead of browning the hamburger.
Yeah, get rid of the cream of mushroom. 🙂 Let me know if you try it & thanks for the tip about the meatballs. Unfortunately the closest Trader Joe’s is 30 minutes away from me, so I don’t go that often, but next time I do I will pick up a bag.
Amber, this looks delicious! I got the mushroom base too (and didnt know what to use it in), so I will have to try this!
Yeah, it smells & tastes really good. I have gotta think of more things to use with it. 🙂
What a great recipe! We love stroganoff. I’ll have to remember this for later!
