Using Golden Cream of Mushroom soup is a shortcut which gives this dish the rich, deep flavor that Beef Stroganoff is known for.
If your favorite part of Beef Stroganoff is the mushrooms, go ahead and add more. Also, if you like your Beef Stroganoff to be creamier, after you are done cooking, stir in a bit of cream cheese or sour cream, or even milk or cream, and serve immediately.
