Ground Beef Stroganoff

1/2 to 1 cup chopped onion
1 clove minced garlic
1 TBSP butter
1lb ground beef
2 TBSP flour
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2 tsp. paprika
1-2 cans cream of mushroom soup
 (start with one, add more for flavor, I use about 1 1/2)
1 cup sour cream
Cooked rice or egg noodles. 

Heat butter in skillet, add chopped onion. Saute until translucent then add garlic and saute 30 seconds longer. Add hamburger meat and flour to skillet. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika. Thoroughly brown hamburger. Add cream of mushroom and sour cream. Garnish with parsley if you'd like. 
Comfort food at its finest.

{This recipe calls for cream of mushroom soup. I understand that many people stick their noses up at such things, however, my philosophy is this: a recipe with cream of something soup beats McDonalds drive-thru every.single.time. Every dinner rotation needs a few items that are quick, easy and successful. Can you homemake this sauce? Absolutely. It would probably be wonderful, however, this recipe for me is dinner in minutes & I'm sticking to it.}
