Russian Beef Stroganoff
This is an authentic Russian beef stroganoff recipe made with sour cream (in Russia we use smetana) and without mushrooms. It is very simple, but this is the original version. You can of course add onions as well if you like, but a lot of Russian recipes are quite basic. Serve over pasta or rice.
Depending on the cut and quality of the meat, the cooking time can be significantly longer, up to 1 hour, if the meat is very tough.
