Stroganora

Bœuf Stroganoff (French spelling Stroganov, Russian бефстроганов) is first recorded in a Russian cookbook in 1871 – while Buddhist monks have been using seitan for their vegan lifestyle for a thousand years. Why not even try both together?

Seitan

We have bought the seitan for this recipe in an Asian store in Luxembourg city. The seitan is also called "fried gluten". Nowadays, more and more big supermarkets also sell seitan.
