How to make beef stroganoff

We asked our master chef, Nigel, how to make beef stroganoff from scratch. See the recipe below and follow the method on Nigel's YouTube video, how to make beef stroganoff.

Ingredients for beef stroganoff. What you will need:

  • 50ml brandy
  • 100ml good quality gravy (red wine gravy is recommended)
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • 50g cocktail gherkins, sliced
  • Smoked paprika (pinch)
  • 1 Shallot/onion finely sliced
  • 100g quality beef
  • 30g mushrooms, sliced
  • 50ml sour cream
  • Salt, pepper & olive oil
  • Unsalted butter

How to prepare beef stroganoff. Method:

  • Start with the beef and cut into strips
  • Place into a bowl and add some smoked paprika
  • Give it a mix and add some salt and pepper
  • Heat a frying pan and add a little bit of olive oil and some unsalted butter. Make sure the butter doesn’t burn, just start melting it gently
  • Once the pan is nice and hot, add the beef and let it cook out, letting the meat seal and well coated in the butter and oil
  • Once the meat is brown, set aside to rest
  • In another pan, add some olive oil and butter and allow to warm up
  • Add the sliced mushrooms and diced shallot or onion and caramelise
  • Add the brandy and let the alcohol cook out
  • Add the cooked beef to the pan and mix
  • Add the gravy and cook so it coats everything
  • Next, add the thinly sliced gherkins and sour cream and allow to further reduce for a few minutes
  • Add a pinch of parsley
  • Serve with rice
