Prime Rib Stroganoff


Prime Rib Stroganoff

Prime rib stroganoff is a great way to enjoy leftover roast, but if none’s left, use other meats. Top sirloin, beef or pork tenderloin, and even chicken taste wonderful enrobed in this delicious sauce.

Making sauce from scratch takes a little extra effort, but the reward is better flavor from the mushrooms and onions. It’s easier to control the seasonings and customize it to your personal taste instead of using canned ingredients.

Prime Rib Stroganoff – A Little History

The name is credited to a member of the Stroganov family as prepared for them mid- 19th century. The recipe however, has older roots in Tsarist Russia made with sauces influenced by the French and Europeans.

The first written recipe used unspecified cuts of beef, cubed and made without onions or mushrooms. Traditional versions are served with mashed potatoes or fried straws. Egg noodles are a western adaptation of the dish and my favorite, because it’s what I grew up eating. Asian versions are served over rice as you might expect. The addition of onions, mushrooms and brandy are also modern variations of the early recipes.
