Traditional beef stroganoff, a mild dish of beef with a sour cream and mushroom sauce, does not have to be boring. Liven up the recipe with spices to enhance the flavor. Follow a traditional recipe, and add extra ingredients or change elements of the recipe for more flavor.
Things You'll Need
- Frozen meatballs
- Dijon mustard or steak sauce
- 1 tsp. chili oil or chili pepper sauce
- Pasta, rice, baked potatoes or French fries
Replace the thinly sliced beef with an equal portion by weight of frozen, thawed meatballs. Alternatively, make your own meatballs, and use a mixture of equal parts of spicy ground sausage and lean ground beef.
Add 1/3 cup of spicy steak sauce per 6 cups of stroganoff when you add the cooked meat to the sauce. Choose a bold-flavored steak sauce for the biggest kick of spices in the recipe. Alternatively, use 1 tbsp. of Dijon mustard instead of steak sauce for the same amount of stroganoff.
Add 1 tsp. of chili oil or chili pepper sauce to the cooking liquid for the pasta or rice, if desired, or toss the cooked pasta, rice or potatoes with the chili oil or pepper sauce to taste.
Serve the stroganoff atop a bed of spiced rice or noodles, a baked potato or over shoestring fried potatoes, as the Russians do.
