Today I’m cooking this impressive but simple beef stroganoff. [Music Plays] Welcome back to our kitchen where we show you how to make delicious family-friendly recipes. Beef stroganoff is a classic served with mushrooms and sour cream it makes a simple but delicious dinner.
We’re going to start by heating a tablespoon each of unsalted butter and oil over a medium to high heat in a frying pan. We want to heat it until the butter starts to foam then we’re gonna add in a thickly sliced onion.
Cook the onion for five minutes until it starts to soften stirring often. Add in 200 grams or seven ounces of baby chestnut mushrooms that have been thickly sliced and cook for a further three to four minutes stirring often until they’re lightly browned.
Transfer the contents the pan to a bowl then place the pan back over the heat and turn the heat up to high. I’ve got 400 grams or 14 ounces of ribeye steak here that I’ve sliced into 1 centimeter slices and I’m gonna drizzle with a tablespoon of oil and a good pinch of salt and pepper.
Place the steak in the pan in a single layer and cook for about a minute or so until you start to see a crust forming on the edge of steak and then turn over and cook for a further 30 seconds try not to move the steak around too much.
Some people like to add a splash of brandy at this point but that’s totally optional I feel like it’s got enough flavor without it I’m also using a cast-iron pan and that helps to add a nice crust to the edges of the steak and that really adds to the flavor at the dish.
Add the onions and mushrooms back to the pan and turn the pan down to a medium heat, add in a quarter of a teaspoon each of salt and pepper and stir everything together. Pour in 240 mil or a cup of double heavy cream followed by 180 mil or 2/3 of a cup of sour cream.
Make sure you put the double cream in first as the lower fat content of the sour cream could cause it to split upon hitting the high heat of the pan. Stir it all together and slowly heat through until hot and also until you see bubbles start to appear at the edge of the pan but you don’t want to bring it to a full boil then turn off the heat.
Sprinkle over a little parsley in paprika before serving. There you go that’s my beef stroganoff a really quick and simple but tasty and impressive dinner I know Chris and I are gonna love it! [Music Plays]
