So, lockdown has me doing a couple of things; the first being so busy working on side-business projects that I normally have no time to work on that I haven’t had time to post on this blog and the second; I have been digging up my favourite recipes from when I was a kid, and cooking them up on Sundays. 

I thought, considering I have completely neglected you all over the past two months, I’ll give you my beef stroganoff recipe (created by my mum/German grandma), whilst I am conjuring up my next blog post. It’s delicious, I assure you, and what better time of year to cook up such magical food?


  • 60gm butter 
  • 1kg beef strips 
  • 2 large brown onions 
  • 1tsp salt/pepper mix
  • 1 cup red wine w/ one beef stock cube
  • 1-2 cups mushrooms 
  • 1/3 cup sour cream 
  • 2tbs tomato paste 


  1. Heat butter in fry pan
  2. Add meat to melted butter and fry until it changes colour 
  3. Add chopped onion and lightly fry 
  4. Add salt/pepper, beef stock (mixed into the red wine), mushrooms and tomato paste.
  5. Pop a lid on and leave lightly bubbling for 30mins until meat is tender
  6. Just before serving, mix through sour cream 

Serve with your desired carbohydrate; rice, pasta or potatoes, in whichever amount suits you. I used one cup of basmati rice

*Note that these macros don’t include added rice, potatoes, or pasta. The calories are a tad whacked (if you add them up manually) because it has red wine. Wine is it’s own ‘macro’ with 7 calories per gram, and it is not accounted for on calorie-tracking apps such as MyFitnessPal, though the calories will track just fine. If you include an alcohol-based recipe in your macros, just know that your macros will be a little off on that day.

If you try it, let me know how it goes!
