Beef Stroganoff With Rodda’s Clotted Cream

December 6, 2013

Yesterday I was telling you about the lovely selection of goodies that Rodda’s sent me to enable me to try and recreate one of their recipes. I love a challenge so I was quite happy to give this a try. The recipe they sent me was for Beef Stroganoff.

Beef Strogonoff is a Russian dish of beef served in a creamy sauce. It is not something I normally make, I tend to make more gravy and tomato based stews which are easily cooked in the slow cooker. I was looking forward to trying this recipe and seeing what it was like. The dish is normally served with rice but works equally well with pasta or potatoes. This was the finished result.

The dish was lovely and creamy with a slight bite to it. It was a lovely meal and I would definitely go to the effort of making it again. I was quite surprised that the recipe suggested serving gerkins sliced over the top of the beef stroganoff, but these actually complemented it nicely. Rodda’s clotted cream works really well in the dish, as it is clotted it is easy to spoon in as you cook. It is not too runny so the juice ends up reasonably thick.
