This is a recipe for people who do not have a lot of time on their hands and need a quick and easy recipe.


  • Knob of Butter
  • tsp Olive Oil
  • 500g Beef Frying Steak, cut into chunks
  • 250g Diced Onions (I used frozen)
  • 500g Mushrooms (I used a combination of frozen and fresh, roughly chopped)
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, chopped
  • 150ml Double Cream (you can use the traditonal Sour Cream, if wanted)
  • half a bottle of Red Wine
  • 5 tsp Paprika
  • 6 Sage leaves, chopped (can substitute dried if needed)
  • 3 tsp Parsley
  • Black Pepper
  • White Pepper
  • Salt
  • tsp Honey
  • 3 tsp Arrowroot and splash of milk, used as a thickener if sauce is not thickened enough.


  • STEP 1
    Add Knob of butter and Olive Oil to a pan. Add onions and saute for 5 minutes until softened. Add garlic cloves and sage and cook until softened.
  • STEP 2
    Add red wine and paprika and reduce slightly. Add frozen mushrooms now. Add white pepper and salt.
  • STEP 3
    Add the Beef and cook until browned slightly. Add fresh mushrooms until softened.
  • STEP 4
    Add parsley, honey and black pepper
  • STEP 5
    Add Double Cream and bring to the boil slightly. Taste and check if anymore paprika or parlsey is needed.
  • STEP 6
    Add Arrowroot if needed, only use a little and stir till thickens and add more if needed. Make Sure the liquid is not cooking or boiling. If the sauce becomes too thick add a little extra double cream or water.
  • STEP 7
    Serve with Boiled Rice, Roast Potatoes, Noodles or Pasta.
  • STEP 8
    You can use Chicken Breast or Pork instead of Beef, if needed.
