  • Brown meat on all sides in heavy fry pan or Dutch oven; add onion.
  • Combine mustard, paprika, brown sugar, salt.
  • Combine Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, ketchup; add to mustard mixture; add to meat; add 1 cup of the water; stir; cover.
  • Cook over low heat 2 hours or until meat is very tender.
  • Blend flour with remaining 1/2 cup of water; stir until thickened.
  • Boil noodles in salted water until tender; drain.
  • Serve meat mixture over noodles.
  • Eight servings.
  • I sometimes use corn starch instead of flour to thicken.Also can be done in a pressure cooker instead of dutch oven as in step 4, to cut time.

    Step 5 states to blend the flour with the remaining 1/2 cup water. But what are you supposed to do with it after that?

    This is a very hearty recipe but it does not feed 8. I doubled it and it did not feed my crew of 8 and we are not big eaters. I also felt it was very sweet. Having lived in Europe, I would not say it is very authentic. Otherwise, it was simple with okay flavor.

    Easy recipe to follow, done in 2 hours as it said, very good taste, leftovers will be wonderful. Definitely will do it again.

    Hubby really loved this dish...I was at first a bit undecided...I thought it was too sweet...but the more I ate the more I liked this is defiantly worthy of 5 stars...I do agree with another reviewer that this makes 4 servings...unless of course you are making it as an appetizer...I found it very easy to prepare and I served it over spaetze...:)

    my wife and I absolutely loved this recipe, although we did not have the beef cubes, we used ground turkey instead. The flavor was fantastic, I can't wait for the leftovers for lunch.
