Slow Cooker Beef and Noodles

Hearty, and stick-to-your-ribs, this Slow Cooker Beef & Noodles is a cinch to make!

Slow Cooker Beef & Noodles - So easy and delicious!

This is one of those recipes that remind me of home. It's not necessarily a dish we had often, but it was a memorable dish when my grandma or mom made it! Occasionally, I make the noodles from scratch like my grandma and mom do ... and other times, I just buy them frozen! 😉

Depending on the day, sometimes I like my Beef and Noodles with more broth than other times. Feel free to adjust the liquid to your family's preference and to your slow cooker. If you like a thicker recipe, use less liquid - and if you like it more like a soup, use more liquid. In my slow cooker, I used the initial can of beef broth mixed with soup mix, soup, and garlic - plus, I later added 8 cups (2 full cartons) of beef broth - which yields what you see in these pictures.

Although my grandma and mom didn't make their Beef and Noodles in the slow cooker, it's my preferred method. I usually start the beef the night before so it's nice and tender in the morning. I quickly shred it and add in some additional beef broth before going about my day. Then, about an hour before mealtime, I add the noodles. It really is that easy and you won't believe how rich and flavorful this dish is until you try it!!

  18. I grew up eating something similar. Mom would cook down Sundays pot roast, add all the leftover veggies & gravy w/some more water & wide noodles - pure comfort food. I have never tried it from scratch and can't wait to do so. Thanks

  19. I'm not familiar with with frozen egg noodles. Will the No Yolk boiling kind work?

    1. I have never used those - you may need to adjust the cooking time and liquid. If you use them, I would love to know how it turns out!

  20. Jamie - I'm late to the noodles and beef party, but it's in the crock now!! Noodles to follow later today (been cooking all night). Thank you - again - for all your awesome recipes. You won't believe how many I use to take to our missionaries every Sunday! They love everything!!!

  21. Have made these 3 times and they are wonderful. The frozen noodles are close to homemade.😃😉 Thanks
