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.

I'v recently started making food from scratch and I made this tonight as it looked simple. Well it was so easy to make as I had most of the ingredients anyway and I followed every part of the recipe it tasted perfect my husband agreed but most of all my 5 year old daughter gave it 2 thumbs up so it must of been good. Give it a try you won't be disappointed

Made this as per the recipe, except I used coconut creme instead of creme fraiche, and red onion instead of shallots. I also added chopped zucchini (with the mushrooms). I made my own dijon mustard, rather than store bought. This dish was really nice, and a hit with my hubby who thought it was extremely "tasty", and quickly scoffed it down. I think the key is to season (I used flakey salt and freshly grounded pepper) both your meat and your veg very well, and get a really good heat when it comes to both browning the meat, and thickening the sauce.

I made this yesterday and it was indeed delish. And just like lots of you did, I added some paprika - plus garlic and fresh basil to it. I also added a tab or two of Marsala as I had it in the larder. Definitely thumbs up!!

Why are people so worried about paprika? WHO CARES if your neighbor wants to add it but it's not "traditional"? Guess what I never search for: "How to make X using only traditional ingredients available at the time the dish was introduced to the world." Lighten up.

I have been given some gorgeous fillet steak from my mother in law who works at a butchers and my partner has demanded i make stroganoff with it for tea tomorrow night. I will be seasoning the meat with paprika, I don't think there will be any need to but the fact that it is infuriating user HV1 is reason enough! i will feed back once it has been made ( :

The proper recipe does NOT include Paprika, why are people adding it. Sour cream, onions, steak and lovely meal by following the proper recipe, but NOT Paprika never incuded.

Who cares? If someone wants to add paprika why is your world ending? Food should taste good and be enjoyed, so unless the offending chef is using this recipe to write a book on "Traditional and Historically Accurate Russian Cooking" there are more important things to worry about.

Can this be frozen once cooked? I'm on my own and tend to batch cook and freeze meals so I have a choice. P.s I will also be adding paprika!

Thanks for your question. The consistency of this recipe will be better if you don't freeze it. You could cut the recipe by half and eat it over a couple of days.
