Sometimes in life you just want to cook something fast, and don't want to spend forever in the kitchen.  On days like that I like to make a meal that I can have ready in 20 minutes.  

This recipe is a quick cook version of beef stroganoff, but tastes great. You can use cheaper cuts of meat such as braising steak; just marinate overnight in the fridge.

Serves 4


1 lb / 500 g fillet or rump steak
150 ml crème fraiche or soured cream
50 g butter
2 onions
1 green pepper
200 g mushrooms
Salt and pepper 


Cut the steak into strips approximately 5 cm long and 5 mm thick. Finely chop the onions and slice the mushrooms and pepper.

Melt half the butter in a pan and fry the onions until soft.  Add the mushrooms and pepper and cook for a further 5 minutes. Remove from pan.

Place the remaining butter into the pan and fry the meat for five minutes, turning regularly to ensure even cooking.  Return the onions, mushrooms and pepper to the pan and season with salt and pepper.  Add the crème fraiche and stir well.  Heat until piping hot, but do not allow the mixture to boil.

Serve with rice.
