Beef Stroganoff {very creamy}

I can eat Beef Stroganoff every single day.  But, it has to be very creamy and served with lots of rice.

Since my stove plate WOK has retired some time ago, and I can not find a similar wok which I like, I now use my electric wok whenever I stir-fry large amounts of food.  This electric wok and I have this weird love/hate relationship - whilst I can change temperatures with only a turn of the button, there is one particular spot on the bottom which always burn the food. Do you have any particular pots/pans or other cooking appliances that do this?

At first I thought it might have been scratched in that spot, but on closer look, I found absolutely nothing wrong. Any ideas why this might happen?  {Years ago I had a square electric frying pan which did the same, and I never could figure out why}

Enough, chit-chat .. let's get on to the recipe:

Beef Stroganoff {very creamy}

{6 - 8 servings}

1kg Beef strips {I like Rump or the Tenderised type}
2 TB Oil
250g Mushrooms, sliced
2 Onions, sliced into half-rings
2 Green Peppers, sliced
1/2 TB Paprika
1/2 cup Sherry {optional}
2 packets Stroganoff Cook-In-Sauce
1 liter Milk
1/2 t Freshly ground Black Pepper

1.) Fry the Beef strips, using a large wok or pan, until just done in the Oil - remove and keep aside.
2.) Saute the Mushrooms, Onions, Green Peppers and Paprika in the same wok/pan until soft - return the Beef strips to the wok/pan - add the Sherry {if using}.
3.) Mix the 2 packets of Stroganoff Cook-In-Sauce with the Milk- add to the Meat mixture - bring to the boil, stirring often.
4.) Cover and simmer 20 - 25 minutes until the Beef is tender.
5.) Season with Black Pepper.

Serve with rice!

Hope you enjoy,

Linking up with these cool parties:


  1. yes I have a wok that does the exact same hing, and I seasoned it properly I always make sure it's oiled drives me nuts!

  4. That looks delicious! :) I showed mu husband so he can make it for us sometime soon.

  5. I'm guessing it just doesn't distribute the heat evenly? Stroganoff is one of those comfort foods for me - reminds me of when I was little :)
