Deconstructed Beef Stroganoff

I was blown away by this dish during my first time working in Banff, Alberta when I decied to treat myself to a dinner at the iconic Maple Leaf restaurant on an incredibly snowy day. The chef uses bison and if you can find it do so by all means but cut the cooking time of the meat by half to keep it juicy.  What they plated was not my Mother's Stroganoff (sorry Mom, I love you but this blew my mind), but rather an incredibly modern take on a classic. I was blown away both with the presentation and in the falvour bursting from this dish. The fresh dill and diced batons of dill pickle lighten up this traditionally heavy recipe. Check this restaurant out and order this classic off the menu or make my riff on their recipe at home. Enjoy!
