INGREDIENTS

  • 500 grams mushrooms washed and thinly sliced
  • 5 ½ tablespoons olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 kg gravy beef fat removed, thinly sliced and lightly salted
  • 200 grams brown onion thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste
  • ½ cup red wine
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoons chicken stock powder or beef sock powder
  • 1 cup fresh cream
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour optional

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a large deep fry pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil, then add the sliced mushrooms, and fry on low to medium heat, until the mushrooms change colour and become soft, this will take about 3-5 minutes.
  • When done, transfer the cooked mushrooms and any juice you get from them to a bowl, and put aside for later.
  • In the same pan cook the meat in two batches: Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil, add quarter of the thinly cut gravy beef and fry until brown all over. Transfer the meat and juices to a plate. Repeat for the remaining meat.
  • Add a little more oil (about ½ teaspoon) to the fry pan. Add the sliced onions and garlic. Fry for 2 -3 minutes, or until the onions become soft.
  • Return all the browned meat and its juices to the pan with the onions. Add the red wine, water and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and stock powder, bring to the boil, cover with a lid, then reduce the heat.
  • Allow meat to simmer for about 1 hour, or until the meat is soft and tender.
  • Once the meat is tender and soft, stir in the cooked mushrooms, fresh cream, and sour cream to the meat. Gently simmer for about 5 minutes, taste for salt – adding the remaining soy sauce and a little salt if needed. Season with freshly ground pepper.
  • If you think the sauce is too thin and would like a thicker sauce, you can mix 2 teaspoons of cornflour with a little water and slowly pour and stir this into the Stroganoff, allow to cook for a minute on medium to low heat until the sauce thickens.
  • Serve with pasta, salad, or steamed vegetables.
