Heat butter and half the oil in a non-stick saucepan.

Using the same pan, heat remaining oil until smoking.

Flash-fry beef in batches, seasoning as you go, then set aside.

Return onion to pan and add sour cream. Bring to the boil and simmer for a minute or until thickened.

Return steak to pan and heat very gently for a minute – the beef shouldn't be cooked any further.

Stir in lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce and parsley, season and serve with mashed potatoes, pasta or rice.
