Hearty, and stick-to-your-ribs, this Slow Cooker Beef & Noodles is a cinch to make!
Beef and Noodles
This is one of those recipes that remind me of home. It’s not necessarily a dish we often had, 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 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 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!!
