Crab stick stroganoff with bocconcini Fast2eat

This dish is a variation from the original beef Stroganoff.

Instead of beef, I used crab stick and bocconcini in a delicious creamy tomato sauce. It is even better when served topped with potato sticks.

Stroganoff or Stroganov is a Russian dish (строганов, stroganov) of sautéed pieces of beef served in a sauce with smetana (cream). It has become popular around the world, with considerable variation from the original recipe. It is very popular in Brazil, not only made of beef but also made with chicken or shrimp.

Crab (or krab or Kani-kama) sticks are an imitation crab meat flavour stick typical of Japan. It is made of starch and finely pulverized white fish that has been shaped and cured to resemble the leg meat of snow crab or Japanese spider crab.

Bocconcini are small mozzarella cheese balls the size of a quail egg. They were once made only from the milk of water buffalo. Nowadays, they are usually made from a combination of water buffalo and cow’s milk. Bocconcini are semi-soft, white, and rindless unripened mild cheeses packaged in whey or water, have a spongy texture and absorb flavours.

Fast2eat has partnered with Dubrazil to share new and simple Brazilian recipes your family will love!
This recipe was prepared with the following DuBrazil products:

Elephant Tomato Extract (Extrato de tomate Elefante)

The Elephant Tomato Extract is a concentrated tomato purée and 100% natural, made with 18 selected tomatoes, sugar and salt.
The Elephant Tomato Extract has no preservatives. It will add a special touch to your recipes. It is ideal for sauces, meats, stews, risotto, pasta, pie fillings and much more.
Adds colour, flavour and consistency to dishes.
The Elephant has been popular in Brazil since the 40s.

Caldo bom extra-fine potato sticks (Batata palha extra fina Caldo bom)

This potato is one of the thinnest ones you have eaten. Try these to see just how much thinner they could possibly be. How thin? Really thin.
The sticks have a fairly uniform light yellow colour. They are quite crisp but have a very soft crunch by nature of being so thin. And they are delicious, with lots of nice lightly salted potato flavour. The very thin cut gives them lots of exposed surface per unit of potato volume, bringing out lots of potato taste.

Yoki potato sticks (Batata palha yoki)

This not an extra-fine potato sticker, but this “thicker” kind is still the thinnest potato sticks you will have ever seen in North America.
Both packages are simple, delicious and addicting. They're known for their distinctive shape, delicious taste, with a rich potato taste, crisp texture and soooo c-r-r-r-runch!
These potatoes are the perfect companion for so many entrees and sandwiches.
They are so addictive, and you will want to snack on them, not served on a plate of food. However, they are much more difficult to pick them up and eat with your hands than normal-sized potato sticks. It is much easier to pour them into a bowl and eat with a spoon than to eat with the hands, but even then, the thinness made it hard to pick them up.
I bet you won’t stop eating it until the end of the bag.
