Saute the garlic for a couple minutes until it just starts to get golden.
Add the ground beef and brown with the spices and herbs.
Stir in the flour, making sure that it is completely coated in the oil.
Add the mushrooms and cook for a few minutes more until they just start to get color. They won’t be cooked through yet.

Turn off the heat.
Drain the pasta and transfer it to a serving dish.
tir the sour cream into the beef mixture, incorporating completely.
