What exactly IS Falukorv? And a recipe for Korv Stroganoff
Mention falukorv to a Swede and you're likely to evoke warm feelings about home cooking.
A staple of the Swedish cuisine, this sausage is very versatile and can be used in many different dishes. Falukorv ('Sausage from Falu') is a smooth sausage made with pork and beef.
At Scandi Kitchen we stock a really nice Falukorv by the maker Per i Viken, a slow-food producer from Sweden. Per i Viken's Falukorv is really smokey and meaty and works extremely well on its own, fried on the pan in butter - or as the main ingredient in the Swedish dish affectionaly known as 'Korv Stroganoff'.
The dish is a hit with most kids as it is quite mild in taste. A very quick family meal to prepare, you can have the dish ready in 5 minutes - and then all you need to do is boil the rice to serve with it.

Korv Stroganof (Swedish Sausage Stroganoff)
Serves 4 people
1 Falukorv sausage (from Scandinavian delicatessens) - we absolutely prefer Per i Viken. Buy it here
1 Chopped onion
A good squeeze of tomato puree
1 tin of 400g chopped tomatoes
150 ml crème fraiche (of for less fatty version, half milk, half crème fraiche).
In a thick bottomed saucepan, add a dash of oil. Add chopped onion and roughly chopped sausage and cook until the onion is soft (Falukorv is already cooked so just needs heating). Add the puree, stir, then add the tin of tomatoes. Season well to taste (we usually add a pinch of paprika to ours – and a bayleaf) and leave to simmer for a few minutes, then stir in the crème fraiche.
Serve with boiled rice.
Yes, it is THAT easy.
