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.
