How To Make Beef And Noodles

See the recipe below for complete instructions on how to make beef and noodles. (Stovetop/oven, pressure cooker, and slow cooker options are all included. ) But here are a few more brief suggestions to help you succeed with this recipe!

  • Select the right beef cut: Chuck roast or sirloin are excellent choices for stewing because they cook more slowly and become extremely tender.
  • Brown the beef: You can skip this step if you’re in a rush, but the dish tastes so much better with the extra browning and caramelization of the beef.
  • Use high-quality beef stock: Because this recipe only needs a few ingredients, the beef stock you select can have a significant impact. I made my batch with Kitchen Basics Organic Beef Broth, and it turned out really well.
  • Don’t rush the beef. To ensure that the beef is perfectly tender, it must be slow-cooked for a sufficient amount of time. (Unless, of course, you decide to use the Instant Pot method, which will expedite the process significantly!) The beef needs to be cooked through enough that two forks can easily shred it.
  • Season well. After the noodles are cooked, taste the dish and add a generous amount of salt, pepper, extra thyme, and Worcestershire sauce if necessary. The type of beef stock you use will determine how salty this is.
  • Adjust the broth as needed. After the noodles are cooked, you can add a few teaspoons of cornstarch slurry—equal parts cornstarch and cold water whisked together until smooth—to thicken the broth if the dish seems too brothy or watery. You are also welcome to add more beef stock if the noodles seem too bland.

You’re welcome to try these additional versions of this homemade beef and noodles recipe:

  • Cream: To make the sauce nice and creamy, stir in a small amount of heavy cream to this dish.
  • Add more vegetables: Sauté carrots, celery, and mushrooms in addition to the onion.
  • Add greens: Just before serving, wilt some chopped kale or fresh baby spinach into the dish.
  • Alternate herbs: Toss in some finely chopped fresh tarragon, oregano, sage, or rosemary with the thyme, according to taste.
  • Add cheese: Just before serving, stir in some freshly grated Parmesan cheese, or serve it as a garnish.

How to Cook Instant Pot Beef and Noodles:

You can easily cook this meal in your instant pot. You can sear your meat in the instant pot just like you would in a skillet. Here are some easy steps:

  • In the instant pot, heat the olive oil, add the meat, and sear it.
  • After that, you would include everything else—noodles excluded—in the mixture. Put the lid on and cook for fifteen minutes at high pressure.
  • Boil your egg noodles while the beef and gravy are cooking. Once done boil, then drain and set aside.
  • Serve and enjoy

Tips for Easy Beef Tips and Noodles:

  • We also like to freeze diced onion and bell pepper so that they are readily available for use in any recipe we like, saving time.
  • Using a small food processor or chopper to quickly and easily chop the onions is another time-saving tip.
  • As an alternative to roasting the meat, you can also use ground beef.
  • Worcestershire Sauce can be added in. It is great combined with the other ingredients.
