Nursery Recipes -Beef Stroganoff

Here is another of the children’s favourite meals in nursery, Beef Stroganoff.

Serves 4

400g diced beef

1 tbsp butter

1 tbsp olive oil

300g mushrooms

3 shallots, finely chopped

1 tbsp plain flour

300ml beef stock

1 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp tomato puree

3 tbsp creme fraiche

In a large frying pan, melt half the butter with half the oil. Increase the heat, then fry the diced beef until cooked through, add the mushrooms, then set aside.

Add the remaining butter and oil to the pan and soften the shallots for a few mins. Stir in the flour, then stir in the stock gradually. Simmer for 5 mins until thickened, then stir in the mustard, puree and creme fraiche. Simmer for a minute, then return the mushrooms and beef to the pan. Simmer together for 5 more minutes and serve.

Serve with rice and peas.
