Sausage stroganoff


Sausage stroganoff

When I’ve surveyed Swedish teenagers about their favourite Swedish dishes, korvstroganoff (sausage stroganoff) consistently came out on top! If you've got hungry children or teenagers to feed, this could well get them demanding more!

You can make this dish with any sausage, but traditionally in Sweden it is made with falukorv, see the tips below. John Duxbury


Recipe summary for sausage stroganoff


• Use a wok, especially if children are cooking this, as they don’t have the same control when stirring. It is so important that children learn to enjoy cooking without the stress of being unable to stir the food without making a mess!
• Korvstroganoff goes very well with pasta or rice and a salad, which are easy for children to prepare.

Falu korv on a chopping board

• In Sweden this dish is usually made with falukorv (falu sausage), which can be bought in specialist stores or online.

• In America, where it can be hard to buy falukorv, try baloney instead. (Baloney is sometimes also called boloney, bologna or polony sausage).


225 g (8 oz) falukorv or any other sausage you like
1   small onion, finely sliced
225 g (8 oz) can of finely chopped tomatoes
100 ml (½ cup) half-fat crème fraîche
1 tbsp   tomato purée
    salt and white pepper to taste


1. If using a falukorv, baloney or similar, remove the skin and then cut the sausage up into small bite-sized pieces. If you are using a traditional British style sausages, cut the sausages into 2 cm (¾") lengths, instead of bite-sized pieces, without removing the skins.

2. Heat a wok over a medium heat and when hot add the onion and sausage and cook for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally until the onion is just beginning to brown.

3. Add the chopped tomato, crème fraîche, tomato puree, salt and pepper and stir thoroughly. Heat to boiling.

4. Simmer for 5 minutes and then serve with rice or pasta and a nice crunchy salad.

5. Assure any young cooks that it is quite simply the best sausage stroganoff that you have ever tasted!
