Helpful hints

    • Use regular broth powder or granules because the low sodium version is very high in potassium. Limit to 1 teaspoon to keep sodium per serving in an acceptable range.
    • Stacy prepared this recipe with elk meat. Try it with your favorite wild meat or ground turkey or pork.

Love this recipe. We also left out the salt and didn't miss it.

Love this recipe. I leave out the 1/8 tsp salt and don't miss it. I also leave out the wine and just add a little bit more water. One question... is the portion size correct? When I dish out 3/4 cup stroganoff and 1 cup noodles it seems like a lot! Moderator? Moderator comment: I agree it is a generous portion--but is is correct according to the recipe provided.

This stroganof is almost my favorite meal and my husband loves it too. I use ground sirloin and 1 tablespoon of vinegar.
