A version of this dish, probably non-authentic, but quick to make!
good beef per person (e.g. sirloin)
uncooked rice per person
oil for frying
2 tsp paprika
butter (or use oil)
small pot of sour cream
glug of sherry (optional)
2 tsp French Mustard
knife and board for chopping
spoon for stirring
fry vegetables and meat
- Put a little oil in the frying pan for frying. Peel and chop the and and fry it for a bit. Cut the beef into thin strips, and add to the frying pan. Add the paprika as well. Carry on frying, over a gentle heat.
- In a separate saucepan, melt some butter. Chop the and fry in the butter over a gentle heat. When brown, add the sour cream, sherry and French mustard. Simmer and stir.
- When the beef is no longer red on the outside, mix the contents of the frying pan and mushroom pan together, and serve over rice.
- The beef is fried so must be of a good quality or it might be tough.
- The rice should be a normal portion of rice, so adjust the amount for your own appetite.
- The recipe says one mushroom per person. This assumes large button-type mushrooms - the type that supermarkets often sell loose. Don't use flat open mushrooms, as these are too big, and turn the stroganoff dark (although they are very tasty in other dishes). If you can only get small button mushrooms, then just use more. Or you could try other mushrooms if you want.
- Use as much sweet pepper as you wish. I tend to use half a pepper for two people, but I refuse to talk about a quarter of a pepper per person!
