Traditional Russian Beef Stroganoff

This traditional Russian recipe for Beef Stroganoff is made with an expensive cut of beef, mushrooms, sliced onions, mustard, sour cream, and a little sugar, salt, and black pepper.

Beef Stroganoff Ingredients
- 1 tablespoon of powdered mustard
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 1 or 2 teaspoons of salt
- 5 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- 4 cups of thinly sliced onions
- 1 pound of fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 2 pounds beef filet with fat trimmed off
- 1 pint of sour cream

Beef Stroganoff Instructions
Combine the mustard, 1-1/2 teaspoons of the sugar, and a pinch of salt with enough hot water to make a thick paste. Let the mustard mixture sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes. Cook the mushrooms and onions in two tablespoons of the oil about 20 or 30 minutes, or until the onions are soft. Drain them, discard the liquid, return them to the skillet, and set aside. Slice the beef into strips. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a fresh skillet until it is very hot but not smoking. Drop in half the meat and fry it for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Move that meat to the skillet with the vegetables, and fry the second half of the meat the same as the first half. After all the meat has been transferred to the skillet with the vegetables, add the mustard mixture and the remaining salt and pepper to the meat and vegetables. Stir in the sour cream, one tablespoon at a time, then add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. Cook over low heat two or three minutes, or until the sauce is thoroughly heated. Serve with Russian straw potatoes or noodles.
