A Beef Stroganoff Recipe for the whole family

Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff a Great Cheap Eat!

This Beef Stroganoff Recipe is very easy to whip up. There are only about 6 ingredients if you don’t count the frying oil and the garnish. How simple is that. Also this meal is relatively cheap to make as well. The only draw back is that there is a pre-packaged mixture which normally I wouldn’t use when cooking. We like to cook from scratch around here. However this is a quick go to meal when you are out of time and ideas, which happens to us all at some time or another.Enjoy!

Serves 4


1 packet of Beef Stroganoff Mix
500g round beef, cut into strips
400g long grain rice
100ml sour cream
1 onion, chopped
200g mushrooms, sliced
Oil for frying
Parsley for garnish


Heat oil in a heavy based frying pan. Add onion and cook over medium heat for one minute, then add beef and brown.

Add the Beef Stroganoff Mix and mushrooms. Bring to the boil, simmer for 5 minutes then stir in sour cream.

Serve with steamed long grain rice and garnish with roughly chopped parsley.


For extra richness, add an extra spoonful of sour cream
Substitute the long grain rice for brown rice (extra fibre)
You can use Fettucine Pasta instead of rice
Best with mashed potato for fussy kids or those who don’t like rice
