Many years ago, my mom started a recipe book for me. Every few months I would give her the book and she would add some new recipes of hers into it... one of my best was her stroganoff...
Stroganoff is a remarkably easy dish to make, and it definitely falls into the "comfort food" category if you ask me. Ok, so you can actually buy what is actually termed "stroganoff beef" but I generally just buy the stir fry beef as it is cheaper, and there is so little difference, other than possibly the tenderness of the cut - however, having said that... stroganoff is something that can be slow cooked, and once beef is slow cooked, its all tender anyway, so it makes no difference in my opinion.
These are the goodies you will need: One or two packs of stir fry beef, or stroganoff strips, A pack of button mushrooms, 2 onions, two heaped teaspoons of spicy french mustard (which just never seems to be in stock when I need it, so I used Cape Mustard.), 250ml fresh cream, Micro herbs, Two tablespoons of all purpose flour, baby marrow spaghetti or “zoodles” if you prefer, brown onion gravy powder. Sautee the onions, add the beef, then the mustard, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Once that’s been cooking for a while – add your thickening sauce. I just make it with flour and milk shaken together. Once thickened, pop the lid on, lower the heat and let it slow cook. The longer the better! Just before serving, you can prepare your baby marrow spaghetti, which literally takes 3 minutes in the microwave. I served this with a simple microherb salad,as the stroganoff flavour is quite unique and is great when allowed to shine all on its own.
Hope you enjoy it!!!
Until next time...
