If you usually serve beef 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.

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.
