Beef Stroganoff is a quick and easy dish for two. All in all, it takes about 15 minutes to prepare. The classic accompaniment is rice or noodles. If you are following a low-carb diet, try cauliflower rice instead, broccoli or a huge salad.
- 300g rump steak (Aldi sells rump steaks in this size)
- 1tbsp butter
- 100g mushrooms
- 100g onion, finely sliced
- Salt and pepper
- 1tsp Dijon or wholegrain mustard
- 100ml reduced-fat crème fraiche
- 2tbsp parsley, finely chopped
Chop the steak into 2cm chunks. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and cook the steak pieces. You might need to do this in batches to prevent over-crowding the pan.
Depending on how you like your steak, cook for 2-4 minutes – the lesser time will mean a rarer finished dish.
Remove the steak from the pan and add the onion and mushrooms. Cook for five minutes until softened and lightly browned. Add the salt and pepper, steak and mustard and cook for one minute. Add the crème fraiche and cook through. Top with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
Allow about 10-12g of carbs per portion.
