This pork stroganoff is the best kind of comfort food! Tender pork, cooked with mushrooms and onions in a creamy sauce. It’s delicious, filling and completely made with fresh ingredients!
I first learnt to cook stroganoff when I was working in the catering kitchens at Global Marine. The method was slightly different from the one I am sharing today, but the ingredients are the same. Cooking for 100+ people means you have to do things a bit differently 😉 Well not all the time, sadly there is no easier or quicker way to peel an egg! The days we did tuna nicoise salad were not fun. It seemed like hours of peeling eggs!!!
It was there that I learnt to cut spring onions with scissors and how to put a cloth under my chopping board to stop it moving about. It is also where I learnt you could freeze cheese and how to make parmesan stock (must share that with you!!!! It is a crazy sounding recipe but so versatile! And frugal!)
In fact Global Marine, the Park hotel and Nigel Slater, really taught me how to cook! But that is all by the by 😉 really. And let’s not talk about it as I have just realised that is over 17 years ago and that just makes me feel OLD!!! Let’s talk about creamy delicious pork stroganoff and a big bowl of pasta!!!
Pork stroganoff, the method below looks quite long, but don’t let that put you off, it really isn’t. Basically you fry the onions and mushrooms in a paprika infused butter, stir fry the pork until just cooked and then simmer it all for a minute or so in some sour cream. A bit of lemon and pepper and you have dinner.
I like to serve it with buttered pappardelle, but I am a pasta fiend! It is equally good with rice, bread and salad or thin cut chips. The key is not to over cook the meat, it needs a minute or so in the hot pan and then another minute in the hot sauce. Simple.
