Recipe by flower7
I was looking for a recipe for beef and noodles that didn't use any sort of condensed soup. I found one at Better Homes & Gardens and made a few changes to come up with this. I use Homemade Noodles (recipe 27344) for the noodles, and they absorb a lot of liquid so this is pretty thick - if you like it thinner, adjust accordingly (I've not tried this with purchased noodles but they may make a difference as well).

I have this recipe cooking on the stove right now. I haven't made beef and noodles before so I was anxious to try this recipe. It is YUMMY. Thanks for sharing. I followed the recipe except I substituted Oregano for marjoram. I also sipped on a glass of wine after I opened the bottle to add to the beef and noodles. I will definitely make this again & I recommend this to anyone who wants some delicious beef and noodles!!
- 1 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1 1⁄2 lbs beef stew meat, cubed
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 1⁄2 cups beef broth or 4 1⁄2 cups vegetable broth
- 1 cup red wine
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons dried marjoram
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 16 ounces homestyle egg noodles
Directions See How It's Made
- Add oil to a large dutch oven over medium heat.
- Sprinkle the flour over the meat and toss to evenly coat cubes with flour.
- Brown half of the coated meat in hot oil. Remove from pan. Brown the remaining meat and remove. Set aside.
- In the same pan, brown the onion and garlic, adding more oil, if necessary. Drain off any excess fat. Return all meat to the pot.
- Stir in the broth, wine, marjoram, and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is tender.
- When meat is tender, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside to cool briefly.
- In the meantime, stir noodles into broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low.
- Shred beef and add back to pot with noodles.
- Cook, uncovered, for about 30 minutes or until noodles are tender and mixture is thick. Add additional broth or water if necessary (if noodles are absorbing it all).
