Beef stroganov is a Russian dish so it’s perfect for a cold winters day….. Yeah yeah I know it’s still summer but why not!
18oz beef cut of your choice, I used tenderloin, cut into 1/2cm strips
7oz mushrooms, halved
1 1/2 onions, sliced
2oz unsalted butter
2tsp smoked paprika
300ml sour cream
Salt and pepper
First off melt the butter in a large frying pan along with the paprika and onion and cook slowly whilst stirring until the onion is soft, but not browned. Add the mushrooms and fry for 3-4 minutes while stirring. Set aside. In the pan you cooked the onion and mushrooms in, heat the oil until very hot.
Add half the beef and fry quickly, seasoning both sides for about a minute. Transfer to a plate and repeat with the rest of the steak.
Return the onions and mushrooms to the pan and pour in the soured cream, season with salt and pepper and stir, bring to the boil and simmer for 1-2 minutes until thickened.
Add the steak to the pan and heat gently as you don’t want to cook the steak any more in my opinion.
My partner wanted pasta with hers but I fancied new potatoes from the garden.
