Recipe: Beef Stroganoff Bake


This is a hearty and incredibly moreish dish inspired by the flavours of a stroganoff. It breaks a lot of rules, and isn't the most obvious creation... but it tastes great. One to share with the family.


  • 250 g long-grain rice
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 25 ml olive oil
  • 250 g chestnut mushrooms
  • 500 g beef mince
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 200 ml beef stock
  • 400 g spinach
  • 1 lemon
  • 200 ml sour cream
  • 2 slices of white bread, stale
Cook the rice

Step 1

Cook The Rice

Boil a pan of salted water and cook the rice for 10 minutes (until soft and fluffy). Drain, then leave it to cool.

Beef filling

Step 2

Beef Filling

Peel and finely slice the onion and garlic. Fry both off in a large pan with the olive oil and a lid to trap in the steam. Slice the mushrooms and add to the softened and sweet onions after 4-5 minutes and cook for another couple of minutes. Dump in the beef and continue to cook until it changes colour then splash in the beef stock, oregano and plenty of salt and pepper. Heat to a bubble and simmer gently for 30 minutes.

Blanch spinach

Step 3

Blanch Spinach

Blanch the spinach in boiling water for 30 seconds, or simply pour a kettle full of boiling water over the leaves, then drain and squeeze out excess moisture. Squeeze a little lemon juice into the spinach and season with salt and pepper.


Step 4


Blitz the bread into crumbs and drizzle in a little extra olive oil. Mix the cooled rice with the sour cream. Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Layer the rice, beef mix and spinach in a large family size oven-proof serving dish. Repeat layers to fill the dish and then scatter generously with breadcrumbs.


Step 5


Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the bread is golden and the bake is bubbling, then serve. Serves 6



SORTEDfood recipe worked perfectly! Food for DAYS!!! :D


Quick fyi, the ingredients list is incomplete!


Saw this recipe this morning and made it for dinner just now. Absolutely delicious and so easy! I didn't have any beef stock so used chicken stock instead mixed with gravy granules and threw in a splash of Worcestershire sauce and fruity brown sauce. Because why not! Yum :) Thanks Sorted!


Needs a rename as it isn't really Strog-enough, but this is still a tasty dish. Definitely cook this again


Easy and delicious
