Beef Stroganoff Recipe from Russia

Beef Stroganoff is a meat dish that was created for and named after Russian diplomat and aristocrat, Count Pavel Stroganov. Alternatively, it is believed that the dish is named after the Russian word ???????? [strah-GAHT'] meaning 'to shave' or 'to slice' which reminds of the thin strips of beef used in the dish. Here's a simple recipe how to cook this delicious meal. Try cooking this Russian dish next time you are up to something new.


1 lb. beef tenderloin
1 lb. mushrooms
1 cup onion
1/2 tsp. dill weed
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup white wine
1 cup sour cream


1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet. Slice beef into thing strips and brown in hot butter. Remove meat from skillet.

2. Add sliced mushrooms and onion (I like to use leek, instead), dill weed, salt and course black pepper to skillet. Cook, slowly, until just tender.

3. Add wine, stir and add cooked beef to skillet. Heat through. Remove skillet from heat, stir in the sour cream and serve.

Serving Suggestions

It's a good idea to serve beef stroganoff with crisp potato straws or mashed potato, as in Russia, however it is often served with rice in the UK, Australia and the USA.
