I however had never made it.... for two main reasons:
1. It was one of those dishes that was always made by the same person and will never ever taste the same. Ever. No matter what. Ever.
2. I don't even have a can of cream of mushroom soup in my pantry.
Not to mention, up until about 3 months ago I thought I loathed mushrooms so buying some at the store for cooking was out of the question. Then I took a cooking class and learned how to properly prepare mushrooms for cooking and I've been hooked ever since.
After browsing through the recipes on Gina's site and coming across one for mushroom stroganoff (using real mushrooms!) I had to give it a try.
Flavor-wise this dish was fabulous! Was it the stroganoff I remember from my childhood? No, but I wasn't expecting that either. It hit the spot and thats all I care about.
The best part of all: the sauce tastes even better leftover on top of rice.
