I call this "Cheater's Beef Stew" because the base isn't home is courtesy of Campbells'. This is a great way to stretch a few small pieces of beef, and some random veggies.

How to Make Cheater's Beef Stew


  • 1Add everything, in order to your crock pot accept for the egg noodles. Sprinkle beef bouillon over top.
  • 2Set the pot to high, for four hours. During the last ten minutes or so, cook off your egg noodles in a separate pot. You can cook them in the crock, in the stock for about an hour, but the texture ends up being a little off.
  • 3If you have used beef steaks, instead of cubes, which I use 3 portion sized steaks- after the four hours is up, this is when I pull the steaks out, and chop them into bite sized pieces, afterward, returning them to the crock.
  • 4Drain your noodles and add to the pot. Stir, and serve. Would go nicely in a crusty bread bowl.
