For those who are not familiar with beef stroganoff, here is a little information about it. Beef stroganoff or stroganov is a Russian dish made from sautťed pieces of beef served in a sauce called Smetana or sour cream. It originated in the mid-19th century Russia and became popular around the world taking on various adaptations in different countries.
This recipe makes use of a cube steak as the beef ingredient. This cube steak is a cut of beef which is usually the top round or top sirloin that is tenderized by fierce pounding with a meat tenderizer. What makes this dish oozing with mouthwatering creaminess? Well, this is because of the condensed golden mushroom soup that is a product of Campbellís. Donít forget to put in lots of cheese to add some creamier flavor. Worcestershire sauce is also needed in this recipe to bring in some more of that savoury flavour. Worcestershire sauce or shortened as Worcester sauce, is a made up of a fermented mixture of spirit vinegar, molasses, barley malt vinegar, salt, sugar, anchovies, tamarind extract, garlic, and onions. Worcester sauce is of British origin that was produced to sell by Lea & Perrins in the early 1900s. Now we know and love it quite well as an addition to many different recipes.
