Want an impressive yet easy beef dinner? This classic beef stroganoff comes together in just 30 minutes with all the hearty taste you'd expect. First, for ease in slicing, partially freeze a 12-ounce boneless beef sirloin steak just until it's slightly firm. Trim any fat from the steak and then thinly slice it into bite-sized strips making sure you cut across the grain. Set the steak aside. Place eight ounces of sour cream in a mixing bowl and add two tablespoons of flour. Stir it well. Then, add ½ cup of water, two teaspoons of instant beef bouillon granules and a quarter teaspoon of black pepper. Stir it well then set the bowl aside. Place a large skillet over medium high heat and add two tablespoons of butter. When the butter melts, add the steak, two cups of sliced mushrooms, a half a cup of chopped onion and one clove of minced garlic. Cook and stir for about five minutes or until the steak has reached your desired level of doneness. Drain off any excess fat, if necessary. Then, add the sour cream mixture to the skillet. Continue to cook and stir the stroganoff until it becomes thick and bubbly. Spoon the beef stroganoff over two cups of hot-cooked noodles and, if you like, sprinkle on chopped fresh parsley for a colorful finishing touch.
