Day 1: Combine the sour cream mixture ingredients in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth and creamy.
If the mixture is very thick, push it down toward the blades a few times.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Day 2: Combine the seasoning mix ingredients in a bowl.
Sprinkle all surfaces of the meat evenly with 2 tablespoons of the seasoning mix, rub it in well, and set aside.
Preheat a heavy 5-quart pot, preferably nonstick, over high heat to 350°, about 4 minutes.
Add the onions and cook just until they start to brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Move the onions to one side of the pot and add the seasoned meat to the other side, along with the remaining seasoning mix.
Cook, stirring the meat once or twice, for 5 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup of the stock, mix the meat and onions together, and scrape the bottom of the pot to clear it of all brown bits.
Cook until most of the liquid evaporates and the mixture starts to stick, about 5 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup stock and clear the bottom of the pot again.
Stir in the sifted flour and mix until it is completely absorbed, so that none of the flour is visible, a paste forms, and the beef is moist and sticky.
Add the mushrooms, stir, and cook, scraping the bottom of the pot occasionally to prevent sticking, for 5 minutes.
Add the remaining stock, stir to clear the bottom and sides of the pot, and cook 10 minutes.
Add the sour cream mixture and, with a wire whisk, whip until the mixture is completely blended into the sauce.
