Beef stroganoff

Beef stroganoff




  • 1kg rump steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 onions, sliced into segments
  • 4 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tsp beef stock powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 500g button mushrooms, halved
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 200ml light sour cream
  • 4 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, chopped


In a frying pan heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil and fry the beef strips in small batches to brown and seal in the flavour. Add a little more oil to the pan as you need it. Making sure that the pan is very hot as you begin each batch. Set aside in a warm place.

In the same frying pan cook the onions with the garlic, tomato paste, stock powder, paprika and mushrooms until the onions are translucent.

Add the water and beef and simmer for 5 minutes.

Stir through the sour cream and parsley.

Serve on steaming hot fettucine or rice.
