Beef and Noodles
Beef and Noodles is an easy recipe that I always have the ingredients in my pantry for.
There are three fresh ingredients I use at the beginning of a lot of my dishes; carrots, onions, and garlic. This combo smells so good while it is cooking, it’s hard to wait until it’s done.
It is worth the wait though, because it’s warm, tasty and delicious. I serve it with a fresh chefs salad, and maybe warm homemade bread.
Ingredients for Beef and Noodles:
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 large carrots, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
5 garlic cloves, minced (I use my food chopper)
1 – 28 ounce canned beef
2 – 32 ounce boxes beef broth
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 – 12 ounce bags of egg noodles
Instructions for Beef and Noodles:
In your large stock pot or dutch oven, add olive oil and heat over medium heat, til just warm. Then, add carrots and onions and saute until carrots start to soften and onions are slightly translucent. Next, add the garlic, saute until tender.
Add the canned beef and break it apart in the pan with a spatula or spoon, while combining it with the vegetables. Then add the beef broth, salt, and pepper.
Last, when all the other ingredients are cooked through, add 3-4 cups of water (enough to fill the pan to about 3/4 full). Add egg noodles, cook according to package instructions.
