  • 1 cup SunRice Low GI White Rice
  • 500 g lean rump steak thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 brown onion cut into thin wedges
  • 200 g mushrooms sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 ½ tsp ground paprika
  • ¾ cup beef stock
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • ½ cup light thickened cooking cream
  • 1 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley coarsely chopped
  • 1 bunch green beans steamed


  • To cook the white rice, in a saucepan, add 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 25 minutes. Remove from heat and stand, covered for 5 minutes. If you would like to use a brown rice in this recipe, simply add an additional ½ a cup of water.
  • Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Cook meat in 2 batches, tossing quickly until browned. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and add remaining oil to pan. Cook onions for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until soft. Add mushrooms and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes longer or until soft. Add paprika and stir for 1 minute.
  • Add stock, mustard, tomato paste, pepper and beef (with any juices). Simmer 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Place cornflour in a small bowl. Gradually stir in light thickened cream. Add to pan and stir just until thickened.
  • Serve stroganoff with rice, sprinkled with parsley and steamed green beans.
