For the beef stroganoff:
1 onion, finely sliced
150g button mushrooms, finely sliced
2 tbsp tomato purée
1 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp smoked hot paprika
110ml beef stock
500g beef fillet, cut into strips
salt and freshly ground black pepper
200ml soured cream
2 tbsp flatleaf parsley
For the sautéed potatoes:
3 tbsp olive oil
3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/2 onion, finely chopped
Heat a frying pan until hot, then add half the butter. When foaming, add the onion and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until just softened. Add the mushrooms and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the tomato purée, mustard and paprika and cook for a further minute.
Add the beef stock and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Season the beef with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Heat a separate frying pan and add the remaining butter. When foaming, add the beef and fry for 2-3 minutes on both sides, until browned all over..Add the brandy and carefully allow to flambé in the pan. Add the soured cream to the onion and mushroom mixture and mix well.
When the flames have subsided, add the beef to the soured cream and mushroom mixture and cook for one minute. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper and add the parsley.
For the sautéed potatoes, heat the oil in a frying pan until hot, then add the potatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until tender and golden-brown all over. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and add the onions. Stir gently to combine.
To serve, place two spoonfuls of the sautéed potatoes onto each plate and spoon equal portions of the beef stroganoff alongside.
