Creamy, saucy and incredibly satisfying, this cheater stroganoff doesn’t use flour or butter. We’ve also cut corners on cooking time, without compromising any of the taste.



large onion
large jalapeno, 1 tbsp finely chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
250-g pkg
sliced button mushrooms, about 3 cups
1/2 cup
Generous pinches
paprika, or nutmeg
1/4 tsp
3/4 to 1 cup


  • Slice pork into bite-sized strips. Chop onion. Taste jalapeno. Remove seeds if it’s too hot. Finely chop. Lightly coat a large frying pan with oil and set over medium-high heat. Add pork and sauté until it loses its pink colour, from 2 to 3 min. Add onion, jalapeno, mushrooms, broth, paprika and salt. Bring to a boil. Then cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, until pork is almost cooked through, from 3 to 4 more min.
  • Meanwhile, slice pepper into strips and add. Stir frequently until tender-crisp and pork is cooked through, about 2 min. Remove from heat and mix in as much sour cream as you like along with green onions. Lovely over egg noodles.
