A couple of weeks ago I took a Russian cooking class at The Russian House restaurant here in Austin, Texas. I’ve made the dish with my own twists since the class, and I’m sharing it here.
Here is the shopping list if you’d like to make it for Maslenita on February 16 — the Russian festival to welcome in the Spring! Go grab your groceries and come on back to make it along with me (below).
This recipe combines what I learned in the class with my own preferences, availability of ingredients, and techniques (which I cannot duplicate because I do not have a chef’s kitchen like at The Russian House). I’ll post more about the Russian House and the class I took in a separate post…including why I titled this with “Stroganov” as the spelling of the name of this dish.
