I don't know if you would consider this easy or not, but it's very good.

Beef Stroganov

1 T Powdered mustard
2 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Salt
4 Tb Oil
2 Tb Butter
4 C mushrooms, sliced thin
4 C Onions, sliced thin
2 Lb Tenderloin or Sirloin
1 tsp Black pepper
1 Pt Sour cream

Combine the mustard, half the sugar, and a pinch of salt with a Tb of hot tap water and stir to form a paste. Let it stand for 15 minutes.

Heat half the oil in a large fry pan or skillet. When the pan is hot, add the mushrooms and onions and stir. Cook covered over low heat for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain and discard the juices.

Trim all fat from the beef and slice into strips 0.25” by 1”.

Place the remaining oil and the butter in a hot fry pan or skillet. Brown the meat rapidly over high heat. Cook the meat in several small batches to ensure rapid browning.

Return all the meat to the pan along with the cooked mushrooms and onions. Add the remaining salt, pepper, sugar and mustard paste.

Add the sour cream a spoonful at a time and mix in gradually until it is all heated through.

Serve over buttered egg noodles (one pound) or rice (2 cups).

Beef Stroganoff is very easy. Here is no amount, no problem thing to do. Get some chuck meat, have the butcher slice it thinly against the grain. Come home, preheat a thick bottom pot or even pan, in the meantime dice some onion, if you like more take more, if you like less take less, doesn't matter it is up to your taste. Sautee the onion until just soft, make sure to season it with the seasoning you personally like, or your wife, up know salt, pepper, Paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, etc. Dredge the meat in some flour and add it to the pan, sauté for few minutes, make sure to season the meat also. Add a little bit of water, just to cover the meat. Add a lot of sour cream, mix well, cover the pot/pan, bring it the boil, turn the heat down to a low medium, and cook it for couple of hours. Taste, re-season if necessary, serve.

I always thought Stroganoff used very tender steak slices cooked for only a minute or a very few minutes. Like on an alcohol or Sterno flame right at the table.

That is the most authentic recipe. As with many recipes, it's been modified many times and in many ways.
