Stew and pasta… talk about ultimate comfort food!


Units Scale
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (extra virgin)
  • 1 brown onion (sliced)
  • 1 kg chuck steak (cut up into a 3-4cm rough dice)
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 750 ml beef stock
  • 300 g button mushrooms (sliced)
  • 2 tsp hungarian paprika
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp porcini powder
  • 2 black garlic cloves (peeled)
  • 1/3 c sour cream
  • salt & pepper (for seasoning)


  1. Preheat oven to 150°c
  2. In a cast iron casserole, place the olive oil and onions. Saute on a low heat until onions are translucent.
  3. While the onions are cooking, place the diced beef in a bowl and coat in the flour.
  4. Add the beef to the onions, and seal the beef peices.
  5. Add all the remaining ingredients except sour cream. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer on top of the stove.
  6. Pop the casserole into the oven and cook for 3 hours.
  7. Remove from oven. In a bowl pop the sour cream and a ladle full of the stragnoff sauce. Stir to fully incorporate the sour cream into the sauce and then add to the casserole and give a good stir to fully mix the sour cream mixture into the stroganoff.
  8. Pop back into the oven and cook for a further 30 minutes or until the beef is falling apart.
  9. Remove from the oven. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.


My big batch recipes generally feed 8+ serves. The idea is that one batch will feed 3-4 people 2 nights dinner.

I like to serve my slow-cooked beef stroganoff with homemade black pepper pappardelle. You could also try mashed potato and vegetables, steamed rice, or even cauliflower rice. I always love a side of steamed veg, because as a mum I always try to sneak vegies in wherever I can!
