Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!

1 pound ground beef (7% fat 93%lean)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
salt and pepper
2 Tb olive oil
1 (8 ounce) package whole mushrooms, quartered
1 1/2 C hot water
1 Tb beef bullion
1 Tb cooking sherry
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tb A.1. Steak sauce
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/4 tsp sugar
1/2 C plain greek yogurt
1/3 C milk
2 Tb cornstarch
1 Tb butter
Egg Noodles
1. Into a hot, deep skillet place 1 pound ground beef, 3 cloves minced garlic and 1/2 a chopped yellow onion. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and brown the meat over medium high heat. When the beef is no longer pink and the onions are translucent, remove to the mixture to a plate and cover with tin foil.
2. To the hot pan add 2 Tb olive oil. Allow the oil to become hot and then add 1 (8 ounce) package of mushrooms that have been washed and quartered. Don't add any salt, here gang. You want the mushrooms to get a beautiful golden sear along the outside. If you add salt, the mushrooms will release a lot of liquid making it hard for them to achieve the sear we are looking for. Sear = Flavor, and we don't want to pass that up. :)
3. Once the mushrooms have softened a bit and have that golden sear, add the meat back to the pan. Add 1 1/2 C hot water, 1 Tb beef bouillon, 1 Tb cooking sherry, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 Tb A.1. Steak sauce, 1/2 tsp seasoned salt, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 
1/4 tsp garlic salt and 1/4 tsp sugar. Give it all a nice stir and bring it to a simmer. Let it bubble away for 5 minutes. 
TIP: Start to cook the egg noodles while the meat sauce is cooking. 
4. Add 1/2 C plain greek yogurt and give it a nice stir. 
5. Mix 1/3 C milk with 2 Tb cornstarch and pour it into the pan. Stir to combine. 
Let the mixture return to a simmer. It should thicken up nicely for you. 
6. Add 1 Tb butter and a bit of salt and pepper. Stir it together, give it a taste and adjust the salt and pepper to your liking. 
Serve over hot egg noodles.
