This is an easy recipe for a dish that’s often considered complicated. It’s ready in about 25 minutes!


  1. Trim off and fat from the meat and then cut the meat across the grain into thin slices.
  2. Heat the oil in the pan, when very hot, add the steak strips and stir fry for 2 minutes until seared and browned. Lift out of the pan
  3. Melt the butter in the pan, add the onion and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes until softened. Add the garlic, pepper and mushrooms and continue to cook for 3 minutes, stirring. Stir in the drained sweet corn and the stock, simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Return the beef with any juices. Stir in 2/3rds of the sour cream and gently heat without boiling (if the mixture boils it will curdle).
  5. Season to taste and spoon the strogonoff on to a bed of rice or noodles. Add a small dollop of the remaining sour cream and sprinkle with herbs or paprika and serve.


  • This dish can be made with chicken escalopes, while beef can be served rare, chicken must be cooked fully.
