  • 600 g beef fillet
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 onion
  • 250 g button mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 400 ml beef stock
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 heaped tbsp soured cream or crème fraiche


Cook the meat

  • Cut your beef into 1cm slices, and pop in a dish and sprinkle over the flour, paprika, and seasoning and coat the meat in it.
  • Heat some oil in a large pan then add the beef. Fry the beef, stirring continuously until it is brown on all sides. This will only take a minute or so. Set the beef aside while you cook the sauce.

Make the sauce

  • Chop the onions and mushrooms. Sauté the onion for a few minutes then add the mushrooms and continue to fry until both are soft. Add the Dijon mustard and stir to coat the mushrooms and onion.
  • Pour the stock into the pan and let it simmer for a few minutes until it has thickened and reduced by about half.
  • Add the beef into the sauce and stir everything together.
  • Turn the heat down and add the cream fraiche or sour cream. Stir through and serve with rice or pasta.
