Greetings to you once more my hungry friends.
Last night I was craving some Beef Stroganoff. I have had some different variations in the past, including the hamburger helper version, and one by an aspiring chef. I thought to myself that I should make some but I wanted to do it using the grill. But before I get into that. I want to share a little of the history of this dish.
The first known version of this dish was published in a classic Russian cookbook in the 1860′s. Around 1912 someone decided to add mushrooms and onions. This iteration was served with crisp potato straws, like frizzled onions, and made with tomato paste. The dish became quite popular after Russia fell and was served in many restaurants in China before the Second World War, where this dish and many variations of it, was brought to North America by service men and immigrants.
So there you have it. A brief history on this delicious dish. I was surprised to find that the dish came from Russia, having not known anything other than it’s a yummy dinner before now. And as with many recipes over the years, I have now made a new variation to it. Here we go.
