Recipe - Easy Beef Stroganoff

Neil Fletcher

A simple straight forward meal, which is perfect as a midweek dinner because it involves minimal prep-time. You can use Mince beef instead of stir fry strips if you prefer, and the brandy is not essential, but does add a luxurious twist.

  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 250g mushrooms
  • 6 spring onions
  • 150ml/5fl oz crème fraiche
  • 1 tbsp brandy
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • salt & pepper

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a heavy based frying pan and stirfry the meat for 2 mins until sealed, then remove from the pan

Add the other tablespoon of oil to the pan and fry the mushrooms and spring onions for 2 mins

Return the beef to the pan and add the paprika and cook for 1 min

Stir in the crème fraiche, brandy, parsley and seasoning to taste and heat through
