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

  • 1 tbsp plain flour

  • 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.

Made this again tonight for the first time in almost a year. It's so easy to make and most of the prep can be done earlier and kept in the fridge until you are ready to throw it all together. Added a couple of cloves of garlic at the same time as the shallots. Extra seasoning with a couple of teaspoons of paprika to personal taste. My allergy conscious daughter loved it and my husband said it was restaraunt quality! I won't leave it so long next time!!

This was lovely. Simple, accurate recipe. Will definitely make again

This was really nice. I halved the recipe for the 2 of us. Used thinly sliced small onion instead of shallots. Added a splash of brandy and didn't use the tomato paste, also seasoned it with a little paprika. Will do again.

I gave this a tweak or two but it turned out delicious.
I used sour cream as I had no creme fraiche. I seasoned the meat liberally with Paprika and I added a garlic clove to the shallots.
Really tasty, the herby pappardelle goes really well with the sauce.
Even a hit with the picky 7yr old, can't say fairer than that!

We made this in January 2016 with some beef sirloin left over - which we thinly sliced. Did not change the recipe much and it was a great success. We found the large dollop of mustard gave a good sour to combine with the sweetness of the cream - did not add wine or brandy.

Yummy yum, yum! Added garlic and a splash of brandy (just because it's stroganoff) everyone loved it including my 2 year old who went back for seconds :0) Happy mummy.

A very tasty dish but not at all what we expected. For it to taste like Stroganoff as I know it, I'd add paprika and lemon juice next time after reading some other recepies. Still very pleasant though. I'd also switch Dijon for wholegrain as it packs more of a punch. This is great if you prefer to avoid stronger flavours though.

Made this tonight for first time. Not a stroganoff fan but really enjoyed this. Added big clove of garlic to shallots. 3 teaspoons paprika (not smokey)( gradually to taste) and used 3 teaspoons whole grain mustard (gradually to taste)as had no Dijon. My big meat eating hubby said he loved it and would like to try a meat free version using mushrooms and veg (cauliflower )
4 stars

I will be giving this a go but will be adding paprika (surely essential in a stroganoff?!), garlic and brandy. Yum.

I glazed the onion then added garlic and paprika, mixed the beef with the flour and added to the pan. Once beef browned added the mushrooms, stock, English mustard and tomato purée. Cooked for good 15-20 minutes before adding in single cream (as didn't have creme fraiche), finally cooked for a further 15-20 minutes till thickened. Used basmati rice instead. Yummy recipe, thanks for inspiration.

I did not use the flour (we like a thin sauce) or the tomato puree but did add smoked paprika, garlic and some brandy. I also used some dried prochini mushrooms and used the the liquid to enrich the stock ( I used chicken not beef as I don't like beef stock, personal preference).
The result was delicious and freezing the meat before is crucial as it allows you to finely cut the beef which for flash frying is essential.
I didn't have any pappardelle but did have some fresh lasagne sheets in the freezer which I sliced to look like pappardelle and it worked. Next time I will try it with a mixture of wild rice and Basmati.
Loved it.

After looking at all the comments I decided to put 1 and half teaspoon on mustard in and half a pint of water then left to simmer for 10 mins. Turned out perfect mustard wasn't over powering at all . Will defiantly make this again

I find that a tablespoon of mustard is overpowering. Better make it a teaspoon

Love this recipe- hubby and I had it with gnocchi. Will make again.

Bad news!
This recipe desperately lacks some alcohol/acid which those cooking it and commenting seem to have wisely added (whisky, wine etc.) Other stroganoff recipes on the site, like those from Olive Magazine, vastly superior. It also really could do with the addition of garlic and paprika. Finally the tomato purée ratio seems off - bit too much.
I feel I've wasted some igredients cooking it. A shame.

This now replaces my regular beef stroganoff recipe that I have used for 20 years! The only change I made was instead of tomato paste I used horseradish which in our opinion enhanced an already wonderful flavour. It is a delicious recipe and one that is now a firm favourite in this household.

didnt like this recipe, the mustard was too overpowering

This was great, I used some veal off-cuts and added smoked paprika & a splash of white wine. Was delish!
