I’m being split on this. On one hand I think my wife’s stroganoff has a better flavour overall. On the other hand I loved the mix of flavours in this with the pickled onion and the herbs.
My wife’s is more saucy. Where as this is more of a marinade and only coats the ingredients. I’m not sure which of these is more authentic I know that it is a traditional Russian dish of beef in a sauce with sour cream. I just don’t know if the Russians are as saucy as my wife.
The onion pickle was the surprise for me. It’s not something I have ever done. I used my Kin Knife so managed to get the onion paper thin
