This hearty stew of fried and simmered beef and vegetables gets its distinct flavor from an aromatic spice mixture composed of cardamom, allspice, and cinnamon.
To intensify this stew’s earthy flavor, use dried porcini (instead of crimini) instead of fresh.
This dish of sliced beef in a sour cream sauce garnished with straw potatoes was named for the Stroganov family of Russian merchants. The inventor was plainly familiar with French cuisine.
Serve this delicate hash on its own, or top it with a poached egg for a hearty breakfast or light supper.
