Beef Stroganoff or beef Stroganov originated in Russia in the 19th century and was named after Count Pavel Stroganov a Russian diplomat and aristocrat. This dish is very popular around the world and there are many possible variations. Traditionally this dish is made with strips of lean beef sautéed with onion served in a sauce with sour cream. In Russia, Beef Stroganoff is usually served with homemade potato fries or over mashed potatoes. In United States they usually add mushrooms to the ingredients and served over egg noodles or plain rice. This meal makes great left-overs.

For Plaeo style use full fat coconut milk instead of sour cream and serve on top of some spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles.
