Classic Beef Stroganoff with Easy-to-Remember Ingredients
In Russia, authentic beef stroganoff is white, but ever since I was small, this was the one and only beef stroganoff in my family. It's my mom's recipe. If you're having lunch with your friends, this is a great dish to serve.
Separate the beef, salt and pepper lightly. Julienne the onion. Heat butter in a pan, and sauté the beef and onion. When the onion becomes slightly soft, turn the heat down and sift in the cake flour. Stir-fry without burning.
When the beef is browned and the onion transparent, add all ※ ingredients. Simmer for 15 minutes.
Add heavy cream to finish. Mix everything and turn the heat off. Serve with buttered rice or garlic rice. It looks pretty if you pour fresh cream (or non-dairy creamers) right before servings.
Story Behind this Recipe
I was craving beef stroganoff. I'm aiming to make restaurant-quality classic beef stroganoff.
Even more authentic if you use white wine instead of red wine. My mother's beef stroganoff was this light-brown color that's in between red and white. If you like it thick, add some sour cream. It makes the dish more authentic.
