Beef Stroganoff with Mushrooms, Smoked Paprika, Cream and Bacon
Beef Stroganoff has always got my mind racing as a child and instantly had me conjure up images of wildly exotic food and places. We have tried to emulate that memory in this recipe and the flavours are layered with smoked bacon and smoked paprika making this ideal winter comfort food. The dish is easy to prepare and needs some time to cook giving you enough opportunity to enjoy the Cathedral Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon while the pot is gently bubbling away.
