This is the stoganoff recipe i always make. I don't like to use canned soups or broths as they always tend to be too high in salts When you flambe foods, you must always use caution. NEVER pour the alcohol from the bottle directly into the pan on the heat source. ALWAYS put the alcohol into a jug or cup and add it to the pan this way. Always be attentive to what is above the heat source and people around you, especially children. Flambe safely!
