Put two of my favorite foods together and I get a meal that I have to force myself to keep from eating more than a serving!
I'm a beef lover. I suppose I should join some group for this, "Hi, I'm <name> and I love steak!" would be the opening line as we stood up and shared our troubled past with cheeseburgers, seared slabs of bovine deliciousness, and other beefy type meals. But I eat it in moderation (so I tell myself) and enjoy it all the more because of it. I had the idea to match beef with another favorite food, pasta, because my ex-wife used to make this stuff she called 'stroganoff' which was bite sized bits of beef mixed in with cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, and onions. I had the mushrooms but not the soup so made it this way instead. I like it better!
4 or 5 garlic cloves minced
1 onion chopped
1 to 2 lbs beef (chuck roast is good) cut into bite sized pieces

1/4 tspn salt,pepper, and garlic powder
1 tspn sage

1 package egg noodles
boil egg noodles until soft, drain and set aside.

cover and simmer over low-medium heat for about 45 minutes or until mushrooms

When beef mixture bubbles for 5 minutes, turn off heat, stir well.
