Beef Stroganoff

(Recipe taken from the Everyday Cooking for Every Family TMX cookbook)

So… I wasn’t TOO impressed with this recipe. Again, because there’s not that much time for the meat or the mushrooms to absorb the flavour of the sauce, it wasn’t as full-bodied in taste as you would hope (I was trying really hard to find another word to use than the totally wanky FULL-BODIED but somehow my brain’s just not functioning). I had leftovers the next day and it was still fairly bland.

You can certainly use lamb here if you prefer, go for a cheap cut (as you would with all stews and braises).

Ingredients

1 onion, peeled and halved

30g butter

500g tenderloin fillet cut into 2.5cm strips (I bought small cubes of tenderloin from the butcher)

120g mushrooms, washed and halved (I don’t know about you, but washing mushrooms just feels weird to me. I used field mushrooms, peeled the outer layer off and cut the top off the stem)

2 tbsp tomato paste

100g white wine

100g water plus 1 tbsp TM vegetable stock concentrate

1 tbsp cornflour

1 tsp dijon mustard

120g sour cream

1 tbsp paprika (I used sweet paprika)

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp salt

Fresh parsley to garnish (I didn’t bother)

Method

  • Place onion into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 7.
  • Add butter and cook for 2 minutes/100 degrees/speed 1.
  • Place remaining ingredients (except parsley) into TM bowl and cook for 20 minutes/100 degrees/Reverse/Speed Soft.
  • Garnish with parsley (if you have this) and serve with pasta or some mashed potato.

Mashed Potato

First thing I thought of when I popped the lid open at the end?

KFC’s whipped potato.

But first thing’s first.

Ingredients

50g Parmesan cheese

250g milk

Salt to taste

1kg potatoes, peeled and cubed in 2cm pieces

30g butter

Method

  • Place the Parmesan cheese into the TMX bowl and grate for 10-15 seconds on speed 8. Set aside.
  • Place, milk, salt and chopped potatoes into the bowl.

  • Cook for 20-25 minutes at 100 degrees celcius on speed 1. The potatoes should break apart quite easily when prodded.
  • Insert the butterfly. Add the butter and Parmesan cheese. Mash for 20-30 seconds on speed 3-4.
  • This is what it looked like at the end..

KFC-mashed-potato-esque don’t you think? I would have liked my mash potatoes thicker, this was much sloppier than I was used to. I think I’ll reduce the milk to 200g and see how we go next time.
