  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • A 200g pot of half fat crème fraîche

From your kitchen
  • 400ml boiling water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
You'll need
  • A couple of bowls
  • Pan with a lid
  • Frying pan
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Tip the rice into a bowl. Cover with cold water. Whisk the rice for 1-2 mins till the water turns cloudy (this is the starch). Drain the rice. Rinse under cold water.

  • 2.

    Tip the rice into a small pan. Pour in 400ml boiling water. Add a pinch of salt. Cover. Bring to the boil. Turn the heat right down. Gently simmer for 8 mins till the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Take off the heat. Leave to steam for 5 mins to finish cooking the rice.

  • 3.

    Whilst the rice is cooking, thickly slice the mushrooms. Peel and thinly slice the onion. Peel and grate or crush the garlic. Finely shred the sprout tops.

  • 4.

    Heat a pan then add 1 tbsp olive oil. Throw in the beef stir-fry strips. Cook for 2-3 mins till browned. Remove from the pan into a bowl using a slotted spoon.

  • 5.

    Keeping the pan on the heat, add the mushrooms and onions. Cook for 4 mins till softened and juicy. Add the garlic and fry for 1 min. Tip the beef back into the pan along with any resting juices.

  • 6.

    Add 1 tsp smoked paprika and stir well to coat. Pour in the crème fraîche and set the heat to low.

  • 7.

    Transfer the sprout tops to the pan with the beef and mushroom stroganoff. Cook together for 3 mins till wilted.

  • 8.

    Taste and season the stroganoff. Add a little more paprika if you like. Serve the stroganoff with the steamed rice. Cut the lemon into wedges and squeeze over to taste.
