Stroganoff is a traditional Russian dish, most commonly made with sautéd pieces of beef in a savory, creamy gravy-like sauce with mushrooms.
While I love traditional dishes, I thought I would shed a light on the less traditional variations of this dish, in particular, pork stroganoff.
It may not seem like switching beef for pork wouldn’t make very much difference to the dish, but, pork stroganoff can actually taste very different from its beef counterpart.
