There are loads of ways to make a stroganoff. We think the acidity from wine and lemon juice with the creaminess of the crème fraîche and richness of the butter, steak and stock makes this a beef stroganoff to remember.

Cook it like we do; quickly in a pan, or if you’ve got time for low and slow, place all the ingredients in a slow cooker and just add the crème fraîche before serving. Either way it’ll be great!

One thing to bear in mind if you are using a slow cooker is to increase the amount of lemon juice and skip the wine. Slow cookers don’t reach the same temperatures as cooking on a stove so you’ll struggle to burn off the alcohol.

Served with rice, mash or even pasta, this beef stroganoff is layered with flavour, deliciously creamy and so easy to make.
