beef stroganoff

not only is the dish rich in flavor it is rich in history. just google beef stroganoff wikipedia  and it’ll tell you how it got its name and how it began being served in the United States in the 1950s. my introduction to beef stroganoff was from my moms kitchen growing up. she’d occasionally make this on sunday’s and was an instant hit for me. she made her sauce using predominately tomato and creamed mushroom sauce. moms way was very tasty but very from-the-can. not blaming her, this was the 80s and 90s! now that i know a thing or two about cooking and try to cook with all fresh ingredients, i’ve slowly found my way to this lovely version of beef stroganoff.
