A delicious recipe, sure to become a weekly tradition and family favourite.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: low 6-8 hours, high 4-5 hours

Serves 4


  • 1 kg Quality Mark blade steak
  • 1 onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 200g Swiss brown or button mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • Pasta or rice to serve
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional)


Cut the steak across the grain into 1.5cm wide strips and season with salt and pepper. Brown the beef in batches in a dash of hot oil in a frying pan, transferring each batch to a slow cooker when browned.

Pan fry the onions and garlic in a little more oil until softened. Scatter over the beef with the mushrooms.

Mix together the tomato paste, beef stock, mustard and flour and pour over the beef. Cover with the lid.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours. Stir in the sour cream and serve over pasta or rice. Garnish with parsley.

Oven cooking instructions

Prepare the casserole as above, adding an extra 1 cup of beef stock. Cook in a lidded ovenproof dish at 180ºC for 40 minutes. Stir in the sour cream and serve.


  • Brown the meat in small batches as you do a stir-fry. Ensure the pan is hot when you add the meat, it should sizzle when it goes in.
  • Make sure the casserole simmers as it cooks – it must not be allowed to boil or the result with be tough, chewy meat.

Love this. Easy to make, quick to prepare and very tasty. I do then to double the recipe so that I can freeze some for a quick re heat later!


Very delicious! Been searching for a good Beef Strog recipe ever since mum lost her one. And this is almost the same. I made the Slow Cooker version, very yummy. Highly recommend!

The best beef Stroganoff that we have ever had! So much better than buying the mix in packets!


put a tbsp or so of smoked paprika in as well........yum


Stroganoff cooking on high for 4-5 hours??? I am sure, you need to correct it to 4-5 mins.. If the meat is already seared even this could be a bit too long...


Dnt have one never tried the recipe

40 min @ 180 in oven?!!! That can't be right.


Venerable Bede - 4-5 hours on high in the aforementioned slow cooker is exactly correct. 4-5 minutes would be utterly be pointless.


I love how no rating other than '5 stars' is even possible when commenting - who wrote this rubbish?
