I was inspired by Jamie Oliver’s Beef Stroganoff on my plane ride back from the States. I was ecstatic when I saw that the plane’s entertainment program has his 15 mins cooking show! I was instantly intrigued by how easy it was, and was equally glad to see him use yoghurt as a healthier alternative to the usual heavy cream or sour cream. I took more than 15 mins but lesser than 30 mins from prep to finish, just because I’m no chef like him. 🙂 I made up my own recipe as the I’m not a big fan of brandy, pickles, or red onion. I’m sure it’s very flavourful given that those ingredients have very strong flavours on its own. The husband gave both thumbs up for his dinner and the girls liked the beef a lot. I personally would have preferred to have it on rice, but that’s a personal preference.
