Beef Stroganoff

Beef stroganoff takes just 10 to 15 minutes to prepare and in a little over half an hour you can can present a truely delicious meal to meal to your family that any restaurant would be proud to serve. This is for 2 large servings which could feed 2 adults and 2 small kids. I double this up to feed 5 of us. Not for weight watchers

What you need

750 grams aged rump steak
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon paprika
A nice big chunk of butter 60grams or so
2 medium onions finely chopped
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 packet small button mushrooms
juice of half a lemon
splash of red wine (50 ml)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 sour cream (375 ml)
a palm full of chopped chives

The process

Thinly slice the steak against the grain, mix flour and paprika together and coat the steak pieces with the mixture. Its easiest to put it in a bag amd shake it around.

In a saucepan on a medium heat, melt the butter, add the onions and garlic and stir for a few minutes or until the onions are soft.

Increase the heat to maximum and add the steak and brown the meat stirring constantly. Add the mushrooms, lemon juice and wine, stir to mix it all together, reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and let it simmer for about 5 minutes.

Lastly stir in the tomato paste and sour cream and stir for a minute or 2 until its back up to simmer.

You are done!

Serve over pasta or rice and sprinkle with the chives.

    Thank you very much for the stroganoff recipe. We are leaving for Australia very soon and I need easy recipes to surprise the working children when they get home in the evening. It sounds mouth watering!

    I use low fat plain yogurt works just as well and flavour is still great, I also use chicken fillets instead of red meat – same result excellent meal

    • Graham says:

      Fantastic idea Charmaine, I’m eating so much chicken at the moment will give it a try. Thanks for sharing G

    hi graham….im doing my consumer studies project for a 3cause meal & im cooking the strogonoff…what could i use instead of the sour cream? it has to be convient….

    • Graham says:

      Hi Zanele, You can use fresh cream which also comes out very well but sour cream is what makes it a stroganoff. Sour cream is readily available in any supermarket. Good luck. G

  6. Andre says:

    Instead of sour cream one could use fresh cream with a little lemon juice added or even plain yogurt or even better the double cream yogurt from Woolworths 🙂

    Hi Graham
    I was just wondering what I could use instead of using sour cream?
    Can I use normal cream?
    Thanks Carmen oget

    • Graham says:

      Hi Carmen, the sour cream forms part of the stroganoff flavour but you could use regular cream if the sour cream really puts you off. Cheers for now G
