Beef Stroganoff Like Mother Used To make

I love this creamy fillet steak,and mushroom recipe,it's quick, and easy, to prepare and cook,ideal for a dinner party,or a romantic meal for two,with a glass of red wine, to complete a delightful meal.

50 g./2 0z. butter

1 kg. fillet steak,cut into very thin strips
225 g./8 oz. mushrooms,sliced
150 ml./15 fl. oz. sour cream
salt and pepper

(optional garlic,or and french mustard could be added for a different taste)


Melt the butter in a large solid frying pan ( salt free butter,or add a little olive oil helps prevent butter burning)
Add The onion and fry for 5 minutes
Add the meat and fry for 8 minutes,or until it's almost cooked ( careful not to overcook meat or it will go tough)
Add the mushrooms and fry for 3 minutes
