Ready In:


  • 1 lb sirloin steak (cut into thin fajita-type strips)
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (2 ounce) bag egg noodles (I use the wide ones)
  • 1 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 -8 ounce cream cheese
  • 1 (1 ounce) container sour cream
  • 14 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 12 cup sliced mushrooms (I use Green Giant in the jar but drain them first.)
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas (thawed)
  • 12 cup sliced water chestnuts (optional)


  • The night before, I marinate my beef strips.
  • (my marinade is posted on this site.) Cook egg noodles as directed, drain them and set them aside.
  • Saute onions until translucent in the butter but do not drain them you want to keep the butter.
  • Cook beef strips in the Worcestershire sauce on low to med heat until done, drain off and save the juice and let it cool.
  • Set the beef strips aside.
  • Use a large mixing bowl and with a mixer, mix the sour cream, cooled beef juices and cream cheese.
  • Pour the noodles into a extra-large skillet or soup pot and add the beef,onions in butter,mushrooms, water chestnuts, peas, sour cream mixture and the spices.
  • Simmer mixture on low until hot and bubbly.
  • This dish can be poured into a large casserole dish and sprinkled with shredded Parmesans or mozzarella cheese and then baked in the oven until cheese has melted.
  • Enjoy!
  • Delicious with a salad and yeast rolls or Garlic bread!

  1. This was so delicious! I really liked the added texture the water chestnuts gave it! It was quite easy to make, and I will certainly make it again!
