  • About

When I was growing up, beef stroganoff was one of those special-occasion dishes that had me in the kitchen pestering my mother in the hopes that we could eat dinner as soon as possible. It wasn’t until years later that I realized it’s an excellent way to use the leftover meat from tender roasts. (For that matter, the method Works for lamb, chicken, or pork, as well as beef.)

Even though beef stroganoff is supposedly Russian in origin, the methods for making it are thoroughly French.
