Russia feels seemingly distant both geographically and culturally. Yet its influence finds its way into many of our traditions. The most popular of these is stroganoff–a rich creamy mix of roast beef, onions and mushrooms served over noodles.
Russian cuisine features a profusion of fresh vegetables in the summer during their short but prolific growing season, and warm slow-cooked winter dishes built around root vegetables and other produce that can survive the long harsh winters. Stroganoff comes out of this tradition–roast beef, mushrooms and onions stewed in a rich sauce of sour cream and mustard.
Recipes of this dish stretch back to the 16th century where it was associated with the Stroganov family–wealthy salt industrialists during the Tsarist period of Russian history. Stroganoff as a dish found its way to Continental Europe through the French chef Charles Briere, a royalist chef cooking in St. Petersburg. Consequently, the famous French cookbook Larousse Gastronomique mistakenly gave this famous dish French origins.
But make no mistake, stroganoff is distinctly Russian. Along with roasted root vegetables and the bonus Sharlotka Russian apple cake available this week, this is a winter-worthy dinner!
