Beef Stroganoff

Back for a second year of blogging, hope you have all enjoyed reading my long 1st blogiversary post. During the celebration, we obviously didn't just eat cakes, we also had main dishes and appetizers. Let's first start with the dish made from our Australian colleague. Beef Stroganoff is a dish from Russia which is sauteed beef served in a sour cream based sauce. This dish is quickly done using the tenderest beef.
