  • 30 oz beef
  • 2 small onions
  • 10 oz mushrooms champignons
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 5 oz sour cream
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp chili flakes optional


  • Cover the piece of meat with greaseproof paper and bit it until it becomes about 1 cm thinner. Cut the meat into 2 even parts on the vertical, then finely slice it as thin as you can
  • Peel and slice the onion very finely. Then clean the mushrooms with a damp cloth and cut them into slices as well
  • In a deeper pan, heat a little oil and fry it quickly on all sides. Use a spatula to mix the meat so it gets evenly browned
  • Now add a piece of butter and wait for it to melt. Add the finely sliced onion and a pinch of salt. Reduce the flame and cook the onion for 4-5 minutes until it becomes translucent
  • Add the mushrooms over the meat and onion. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Increase the flame and cook the mushrooms for 6-8 minutes
  • Add beef stock to the sauteed mix. Pour over about 2 cups of beef stock and let it come to a boil
  • Take the pan off the heat and sprinkle over a tablespoon of all-purpose flour. Set the pan on medium heat and bring it to a boil so that the flour gets cooked
  • Add a tablespoon of mustard and the sour cream and mix well. Reduce heat to low and mix well. Your beef stroganoff is ready! Serve with pleasure!
