Creamy, delicious, and filling comfort food are the words that come to mind when I think of a Classic Beef Stroganoff. Over the years, I can not tell you how many times my father cooked this recipe when we were children. It was the perfect winter meal on a chilly night.

Remember that my father was no Elena Molokhovets’ the famous author of “A Gift to Young Housewives.” Ms. Elena Molokhovets’ was noted to be the first author known for her recipe for Govjadina po-strogonovski, s gorchitseju, “Beef à la Stroganov, with mustard,” in its 1871 edition.

 

Creamy, delicious, and filling comfort food are the words that come to mind when I think of a Classic Beef StroganoffThe recipe from the 1871 edition of her cookbook involves lightly flouring beef cubes and not strips sautéed, sauced with prepared mustard and bouillon, and finished with a small amount of sour cream: no onions, no mushrooms were included.

Did you know Russian and Chinese immigrants, as well as our United States servicemen stationed in China, brought back several different versions of the dish to the United States? This may very well explain the boom in popularity of this classic recipe during the 1950s among homemakers and restaurants.

Below you will find a fusion of my father’s original recipe for Classic Beef Stroganoff with my subtle touches. I believe this was from an old recipe card of my grandmother’s on his side of the family.
