The Wikipedia article: Beef Stroganoff makes interesting reading. Perhaps that's where I got the idea to serve it over French fries (potato straws). The article makes the point that the recipe has become popular around the world, with many regional variations.

So, everybody, what do you think? With or without tomato paste or other tomato ingredient? I say with!

I think we can all agree on mushrooms... (but maybe not).

I'm not sure the recipe should have onions. (I like to use thinly sliced shallots, and some minced garlic.)

Mustard or not. (I prefer it with.)

Quick cooking or slow cooking? My vision of Stroganoff uses a very tender cut of beef, sliced very thinly, then sauteed very quickly in butter.

Sour cream is of course required.

Harry you were probably to young to remember Uncle Maury AKA little Mo the Georgian hit man's method.
Potatoes, they have to be hung in a net in a dark warm place till they look manky.The starch turns to sugar so when the are fried the sugar on the surface makes the fries very crisp and sauce proof.

Strog, dust pieces of good steak in seasoned flour. Sweat mandolin sliced onions till opaque, remove from the pan, fry sliced mushrooms till dry,remove from pan.
Clean the pan and add a dash of oil, sear the meat quickly, add the onions,mushrooms and sour cream. The cream should take a minute to thicken with the heat and flour to the consistency of an omelette.

The crispy fries texture to the soft creamy strog.

Nearly right H, Mo bought tickets to America and spent his first 10 yrs in London looking for the bugger who had cheated him.
If Mo had learned to write Strog would have been his signature dish.

Ps the new pull start for the mower was only 15, she fired first pull........a bit like ....ok I'll get my coat.

PPS do you remember Eddie the Grass?

The guy is really funny, first of all russians would never use the potatos he used. Never ever seen them. Second of all russians are more likely to use dill rather than parsly, though parsly is very common, third of all, beef strogonoff doesn't mean quick or was it fast, whaever the word he used. It mean beef chips, as in wood chips. Something that was cut fast, thin and small.
