Boeuff Stroganoff

Russian Boeuf Stroganoff

This recipe is a new twist on Bœuf Stroganoff with a juniper-cacao based spice blend. It is best paired with wide noodles, mushrooms, and beef. Optional, substitute one or all. Or add the sauce to a mushroom casserole with green beans or potatoes. Pink pepperberries are best when added at the end of cooking or sprinkled on the finished meal. Their flavor pairs perfectly with juniper.
