Beef Stroganoff

Beef stroganoff is a unique way to diverse your meat menu. Even if you know the classical recipe you can experiment and cook the completely exotic meal. This dish comes from Russia and its name is the surname of Russian diplomat Count Paul Stroganov who invented the classical recipe.

It sounds like that: the beef cubes should be lightly floured and stewed over the medium heat in a sauce made of bouillon and mustard. When the meat is already cooked, a little of sour cream should be added. That’s it.

As you see there are no mushrooms and onions in this initial recipe. And pay your attention that the meat is diced and sliced into strips as we do today. Later tomato and onion were added and here the beef is cut into strips already.

This iconic comfort meal that is always appropriate. In addition the ingredients are simple, the cooking is easy and fast. Though the devil as you know is in details. There are so many secrets which provide the perfect result and we are going to tell about them in our cooking steps here.
