Culinary Classic: Beef Stroganoff

Although Russian in origin, Beef Stroganoff is largely a variation on a French dish of sautéed beef and a pan sauce made with mustard as the primary flavor agent. What makes Stroganoff Russian is the pre-eminence of sour cream in the dish’s flavor profile.

In the French classic, Emincé de Boeuf à la Moutarde, the recipe calls for crème fraiche and a mid-strength prepared mustard. In Stroganoff, those ingredients are exchanged for sour cream. The result is a piquancy in the Stroganoff that is not evident in the French original.

Who can forget Teressa Bellissimo who invented Buffalo (chicken) wings at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY, one night in 1964 when her teenaged son and his band of party-reveling friends showed up at the restaurant hungry.

Mrs. Bellissimo took some chicken wings that were intended for the stock pot, deep-fried them, then coated them with a mixture of hot sauce and butter. On the side, she served celery sticks and blue-cheese dressing.

The rest is history.
