If you usually serve stroganoff with rice, try it with pappardelle pasta instead - it works beautifully with the creamy sauce

  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 300ml beef stock
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • ½ x 20g pack flat-leaf parsley, chopped


  1. Freeze the beef for 45 mins before you begin, slice as thinly as you can, then season.

  2. In a large, non-stick frying pan, melt half the butter with half the oil. Increase the heat, then quickly sear the beef in batches until browned on both sides. Remove the meat and set aside. Repeat with the mushrooms, then set aside with the beef. Boil the pasta.

  3. Add the remaining butter and oil to the pan and soften the shallots for a few mins. Stir in the flour for 1 min, then gradually stir in the stock. Bubble for 5 mins until thickened, then stir in the mustard, purée, crème fraîche and seasoning. Bubble for 1 min more, then return the beef and mushrooms to the pan.

  4. Drain the pasta, toss with half the parsley, season, then serve with the creamy stroganoff, sprinkled with the remaining parsley.

Excellent recipe, many thanks for sharing.

We had this with rice and thought this was delicious. I read through the reviews and took notes. Used 75mls of red wine to make up stock and added 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika and a crushed garlic clove to the softened red onion (easier to peel than shallots!) and used plain natural yoghurt. I mucked up with the frying of the beef at first as I put ALL of the butter in the pan with the olive oil so had to add more for the onions. Not sure what this did to the calorie count but the beef was so tender it was worth it. Definitely one to keep.

Thought this was ok but not that special, I preferred it to my husband who really didn't like the mustard in the sauce. Shan't bother again.

Unfortunately I didn't like this recipe. The colour was too orange due to the purée and the flavour was too vinegary from the mustard. Pasta was nice with the parsley though. Won't make again.

A fantastic stroganoff, full of flavour and easy to make! The only ingredient we skipped out on was the tomato puree as we forgot to buy some, so I added a little more mustard. Still tasted amazing the next day as leftovers. Will definitely make again.

Excellent! Halved the quantity of meat, musrooms and pasta as I was cooking it for two and used fillet steak. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect. Definitely on e of the best recipes I've tried on this site!

Tested - very very nice! After reading the comments, I modified the recipe like this: added paprika, white wine and garlic. Also, added spinach, swapped cream with low fat Greek yoghurt and used penne instead of pappardelle as I always have aplenty of penne at home. Basically, mine is a different recipe :D - just kidding! ;)

Oh, the meat - used rump steak and strictly followed the cooking guidance - was incredibly tender!

A very simple and quick dish to prepare and both my husband and I loved it - will definitely be doing again. Might add a splash of Brandy next time.....

Do you think I can try this with greek yoghurt instead of fresh cream? I'm kinda on diet...

This was fab! I read every single comment before I made it and these were the changes I made: I added smoked paprika and garlic to the onions after they had softened; omitted the tomato puree (other people's comments put me off that!); added red wine to make the stock up to 300ml; I used grainy mustard and I blitzed the chestnut mushrooms before adding because my husband and I don't like mushrooms that much so it's a great way of sneaking them into dishes.
I was really interested in people's comments about the meat being tough so I bought fillet, sliced it thinly and flash fried for a minute then covered to rest; it was amazingly tender. We will definitely make this again- we absoultely loved it. Thanks JJ!

Perfect stroganoff every time. I use polenta as a substitute for pasta and rice.

Do this quite often but add hot paprika to the sauce to give it a bit more oomph.
Also sometimes use english mustard if dijon not handy.

I wanted a recipe to use up some cooked beef, but the sauce turned out like a warm seafood sauce - yuk - it was the most hideous shade of orange with the addition of the tomato puree. The idea of serving with the Pappardelle was nice, but the sauce was a right turn-off!

I used low fat creme fraiche as on a diet and it was beautiful, tasted like a real treat, served with asparagus and chantaney carrots,
