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

  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.

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

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.

Please, please, please stop adding Paprika to this. This is not the Russian way, they did not have paprika. It is artificial to this recipe and totally unnecessary if seasoning correctly. Thank you for listening to a chef. xxxx

Easy and delicious. I will be making this again and again. I added garlic and paprika as recommend in other comments.

No way should paprika be added, original recipe does not have it in, because it was unobatainable, why add to a proper recipe or change it????????????????????

Funnily enough I think most people on this website are looking for tasty food rather than a historical re-enactment. No need to rip people apart just because they're giving feedback on what they enjoyed.
