1In Large saucepan, fry the onions, mushrooms, and meat with butter till meat is lightly brown. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper as the meat browns. (approx. 5 minutes).
2Add cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, and water from the can. Never allow the sauce to boil~!!!
Continue to cook on low for 15-20 minutes. (meat is already cooked when pan fried in saucepan, so it is just long enough to blend all the flavors of the ingredients.)
3Bring second saucepan filled with water to boil, then cook egg noodles on the side till tender (approx. 10 minutes on medium boil). Serve stroganoff over egg noodles and add any vegetable you wish as a side.
