1/2 cup minced onion
1/4 cup butter
1 lb ground beef
1 clove garlic (I use 2)
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons salt (I use 1 tsp)
1/4 teaspoon accent (hence the less salt!)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika (I omit this)
1 lb (or can) sliced mushrooms
Saute onion in butter until golden, add garlic and saute a bit. Stir in beef, brown, and add the rest of the above ingredients. (If the mushrooms are raw, be sure to saute all of these ingredients for a few minutes. If canned, you can just go to the next step.)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup (or so) white wine (although red wine works in a pinch)
1 tablespoon ketchup (or you can use tomato paste)
Simmer (uncovered) for 10 minutes and add 1 cup sour cream. Heat through, but be sure not to simmer with the sour cream!
Serve over rice or noodles. It's good and it only takes about 20 minutes - the same time as it takes the rice. Easy, quick, and superb tasting!
