1 Cook pasta of choice according to packet instructions and drain well.
2 Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add beef strips in batches and cook for 1-2 minutes per side or until browned. Transfer to a plate, cover to keep warm and set aside.
3 Add onion to pan and fry gently until soft. Add mushrooms and paprika and stir for 3-4 minutes, or until fragrant. Return reserved beef and any juices to pan with 3-4 tablespoons of water to thin sauce. Stir well and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low, cover pan and simmer for 5-6 minutes or until beef is tender and sauce is thick. Remove pan from heat and stir through sour cream.

Scatter stroganoff with fresh thyme.
