Stroganoff – Ground Veal
by James Belardo

This recipe is a variation on a theme, the theme being stroganoff. While an early iteration omitted onions and mushrooms we decided to add them as we believe they add fantastic flavor.

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. A competition purported to have taken place in 1890 is sometimes mentioned in the dish’s history, but both the recipe and the name existed before then. Another recipe, this one from 1909, adds onions and tomato sauce, and serves it with crisp potato straws, which are considered the traditional side dish for Beef Stroganoff in Russia. The version given in the 1938 Larousse Gastronomique includes beef strips, and onions, with either mustard or tomato paste optional.

Ingredients
2 lbs. ground veal
1/2 small onion, diced
1-2 cloves garlic, diced
2 – 3 cups sliced cremini mushrooms
olive oil

2 cups beef stock
Salt and Pepper to taste
