Anastasia’s Stroganoff Recipe

I never cared for stroganoff.

Did you read that like a Romanov?

Alright everybody, it’s time to make a recipe inspired by one of my favorite animated musicals, Anastasia! This is one of only a handful of non-Disney animated movies that I actually like, and I think the best part of it is the music. Yes, this movie is grossly inaccurate, historically speaking, but if you look at it just as a work of fiction, not based on real life, it’s a great story!

In one of the songs, Anastasia comments that she “never cared for stroganoff.” So, for this recipe, I figured I’d alter it a bit by taking out the only ingredient in stroganoff that I hate: mushrooms. Maybe it’s the mushrooms Anastasia never cared for. In that case, I bet she’d love this version, and I hope you do, too.
