OLD-FASHIONED BEEF & NOODLES

A very memorable comfort food served interchangeably with Chicken and Noodles--both with homemade mashed potatoes (no lumps!). While Mother made her noodles from scratch, after one miserable attempt, I chose to go the store-bought route. They do have some marvelous noodles out there.

Ingredients

2 lb
stew beef, trimmed of fat
2 medium
cans beef broth
1 pkg
(16 oz.) kluski egg noodles
2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
pepper
water

Step-By-Step

1Place beef in a Dutch oven in enough water to cover beef. Add the beef broth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat and simmer, covered, 1 hour.
2Skim off any fat, bring to second boil. Add more water if need be, up to 2 qts. total. When water begins to boil, add the noodles and the seasonings.
