FWIW, David Rosengarten thinks Beef Stroganoff has been around so long it's become "American": "American food is no longer just mashed potatoes and roast beef. For over two hundred years, American dinner tables have welcomed the ethnic, regional, and home-style fare of many different places and people. Some of these dishes -- Ravioli, Beef Tacos, Swedish Meatballs, Beef Stroganoff, Potato Salad -- have been around so long they seem as American as anything else. We've also greedily appropriated all kinds of regional specialties, dishes like New England Clam Chowder, Gumbo, Cornbread, and Texas Barbecued Brisket. And then there are the home classics that seem to come from everybody's grandmother's kitchen. As David Rosengarten makes deliciously clear in It's All American Food, these foods have become American, and together they form an exciting and unique American cuisine."
