ELLEN'S FROM-SCRATCH BEEF AND NOODLES

This recipe is slight variation on my mother's beef and noodles. I usually make this in the slow cooker, but it can be made on the stove-top instead--just a matter of preference. My family really loves this, maybe even more than chicken and noodles.

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

8 Hr

Method:

Slow Cooker Crock Pot

Ingredients

1 Tbsp
vegetable oil
1 1/2 lb
stew beef
4
beef bouillon, cubes
boiling water
1 lb
egg noodles
salt and pepper to taste
1 pinch
dried onion flakes
1 pinch
garlic powder
1 tsp
dried parsley flakes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Trim any fat from beef and cut into small cubes. Place oil in large pot or Dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat. Add beef cubes and brown slightly, stirring frequently. Drain beef on paper towels; then place in 4- to 5-quart slow cooker.
2
Dissolve beef bouillon cubes in about 4 cups boiling water; pour over beef. Add seasonings and stir.
3
Stir in noodles. Make sure there is enough liquid to cover--it will cook down. Cook on HIGH just until mixture begins to boil. Reduce to LOW setting and cook, covered, for 7-8 hours, or until beef is fork-tender.

NOTE: You can also make this in a Dutch oven on the stovetop with the same directions, except cooking time. Simmer on low heat for about two hours.
