Beef Stroganoff & Sour Cream


Beef is my second choice after the chicken when it comes to cook meat. Searching for ideas, I came upon this recipe that I found interesting. I tried it and I was not disappointed .

The " Beef Stroganoff " according to the wiki, is a Russian recipe with basic ingredients the beef and the sour cream. Over time, quite a few variations of the original recipe can be found. One of the many recipes I will give you today. Generally, it's easy to cook. The meat is cut into very thin strips and that helps the food to be ready in no time. The sour cream gives the special taste to the dish. The recipe of the sour cream is given to me by Chef M.Paterakis. Can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one week. The potatoes that are cut like matchsticks are the perfect accompaniment.
