Beef Tips recipe needed

I'm basically making meals and freezing single portion containers for you know who, who works 12 hour days and I end up eating alone. (where is that "oh poor me" smiley?)
I have so far: a cream based pasta verona, lasagna, chili with noodles (yuk on the noodles) and a few heavy bean soups.
He wants Beef Tips with Noodles. I don't know exactly what this is. What cut of beef should I use and does anyone have a recipe for Beef Tips?
Is Beef Tips with Noodles really a dish or does it go by any other name?

I was thinking Stroganoff too.

I am not familiar with the term "beef tips". One of the cuts used for Stroganoff is the tip of the beef tenderloin, since it doesn't cut into nice steaks, strips are perfect. The butt of the tenderloins is used for Stroganoff too, for the same reason.

I appreciate both posts and I do think beef stroganoff is probably the best bet here.
I'm guessing 'beef tips' is some Wisconsin favorite. It's probably seen on some Wisconsin restaurant menu.
I have some 'stew meat', no one knows what it is from, but I'm thawing it out. (from that half a beef I bought)
Once I run out of 'stew meat', I'm going to have to learn how to use some of these roasts in something besides roasting them.
I'm going to need more sour cream to make this. Some how, the beef dishes with cream or sour cream, seem so nice for dinners, interspersed with tomato based beef dinners.

Around here, you can get what's called a sirloin tip roast or sirloin tips. The sirloin tips are strips of meat people marinate and grill. It has a different texture I don't care for. The roast is decent as an oven roast.

You can do beef bourguignone with noodles also. Make sure there is lots of gravy...

If you have a couple of pounds... 2 at least. Season them and sprinkle a little flour on them. turn heat up to med high and brown meat quickly in olive oil but don't burn the flour. Remove meat and deglaze with half a bottle of red wine. Add 2-3 tablesoons of dark cherry or sour cherry preserves and a sprig of rosemary. Reduce this by about 1/2 and taste. Adjust seasonings and rewarm meat in sauce. Serve over buttered egg noodles or fettucini. Fresh blackberries will work too.
