Method

  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a non-stick frying pan then add 1 sliced onion and cook on a medium heat until completely softened, around 15 mins, adding a little splash of water if it starts to stick.

  2. Crush in 1 garlic clove and cook for 2-3 mins more, then add 1 tbsp butter.

  3. Once the butter is foaming a little, add 250g sliced mushrooms and cook for around 5 mins until completely softened.

  4. Season everything well, then tip onto a plate.

  5. Tip 1 tbsp plain flour into a bowl with a big pinch of salt and pepper, then toss 500g sliced fillet steak in the seasoned flour.

  6. Add the steak pieces to the pan, splashing in a little oil if the pan looks dry, and fry for 3-4 mins, until well coloured.

  7. Tip the onions and mushrooms back into the pan. Whisk 150g crème fraîche, 1 tsp English mustard and 100ml beef stock together, then stir into the pan.

  8. Cook over a medium heat for around 5 mins.

  9. Scatter with some chopped parsley, and serve with pappardelle or rice.

I made this to the letter and found it really bland. The good point: the fillet steak stayed very tender. But the sauce was just insipid and meaty, like school food: I missed the classic stroganoff tang of sour cream and smoked paprika which are missing from this particular recipe.

Really enjoyed this. I used leftover beef and didn't bother with the flour. I left on a low heat to thicken up a bit and it was honestly delicious.

This is so easy to make and my whole family love it. It is a staple in our house. Sometimes I use left over roast beef sometimes stir fry strips. Especially good with a rich beef stock pot for the stock. I have even bought frozen shallots to speed things up. We have with rice and veg.

I made this tonight. My 14 year old son made Mmmm noises while eating it (A compliment I believe!). I used whole grain mustard and sirloin steak - really nice.

I made this for dinner tonight. We found it to be quite bland and it had an overall bloody taste throughout. I will be sticking to the other beef stroganoff recipe with herby pasta on this site in future.

Is the recipe correct? 150 tsp crème fraîche? should that read 150ml?

Thanks for pointing this out - it's meant to be 150g and we have now amended the recipe.
