BEEF STROGANOFF

BEEF STROGANOFF

This beef stroganoff recipe is so rich and luxurious it feels special, and yet it’s easy to make. Beef fillet tails are a great cut – tender and full of flavour – but feel free to swap them for sirloin, rump or rib eye steak if you prefer.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES: 2

Vegetable oil, for cooking

2 beef fillet tails (about 200g each)

50g butter

1 onion, sliced

3 garlic cloves, grated

2 tsp smoked paprika

1 beef stock cube

1 tbsp tomato purée

400ml tin beef consommé, such as campbell’s

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

150g chestnut mushrooms, stalks removed, caps quartered

3 tbsp crème fraîche

75g gherkins, chopped

Juice of ½ lemon

60g packet of pork scratchings, roughly crushed

3 tbsp chopped chervil

2 tbsp dried onion flakes

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

METHOD

1: Heat a large, heavy-bottomed sauté pan or frying pan over a medium-high heat and add a little oil. Season the beef fillets with salt and pepper and place in the pan. Sear well all over until dark brown in colour. Add the butter and baste the steaks until cooked to medium-rare, about 2–3 minutes each side. Remove from the pan and leave to rest on a plate.

2: Lower the heat under the pan to medium-low, add the onion and garlic and sweat gently for 10–15 minutes until softened, stirring from time to time. Add the smoked paprika, crumble in the stock cube and cook, stirring, for 2–3 minutes. Stir in the tomato purée and cook for 1–2 minutes.

3: Pour in the beef consommé and stir in the mustard. Turn the heat up to medium-high, bring to the boil and add the mushrooms. Cook until the sauce is reduced to a rich glaze, then lower the heat and stir in the crème fraîche. Season with salt and pepper.

4: Cut the beef into thick strips and return to the pan, with any juices from the plate. Stir in the gherkins and lemon juice. Take off the heat.

5: Mix the crushed pork scratchings with the chopped chervil and onion flakes. Spoon the stroganoff into warmed bowls, sprinkle over the pork crunch mixture and serve straight away.
