The scent of hot cross buns just has that special way of evoking a warm comforting feeling that we love around Easter.

This recipe shows how to best cook our Ready to Cook Beef Stroganoff– hint, the secret is cooking some mushrooms before cooking the Stroganoff and adding sour cream at the end.

Alana has given us a twist on the buttered pasta Beef Stroganoff is often served with. By toasting the risoni, like you would the rice in a risotto, it gives it a beautiful nutty flavour that adds more depth.
