Beef Stroganoff with Mushrooms

Elena Molokhovets‘s classic Russian cookbook A Gift to Young Housewives gives the first known recipe for Govjadina po-strogonovski, s gorchitseju, “Beef à la Stroganov, with mustard”, in its 1871 edition. The recipe involves lightly floured beef cubes (not strips) sautéed, sauced with prepared mustard and bouillon, and finished with a small amount of sour cream: no onions, no mushrooms.

The wonderful warmth and heartiness of a good Stroganoff can be as comforting a big hug. Our take on this classic recipe is fairly simple but not as simple as the original. While the so-called original recipe forgoes mushrooms and onions, we believe they’re important ingredients and downright essential for creating a scrumptious Stroganoff.

Ingredients
2 lbs. beef chunks (around 1.5-inch square)
1 small onion, cut
2-3 cloves garlic, diced
2 – 3 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
olive oil
2-3 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp prepared mustard (2 tsp powdered mustard)
1/4 cup Worcestershire
2 tbsp Zio’s Browning Sauce (beef) – optional
2 cups beef stock
Salt and Pepper to taste
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) – optional
flat-leaf parsley
1/4-1/2 cup sour cream – optional

Starch
Egg Noodles
Roasted or Boiled Potatoes
Crusty Italian Bread
