Beef & Noodles
  • Cooking Time: 420-480
  • Servings: 8-10
  • 1 5-6 lb. chuck roast, bone in
  • 2 pkgs. onion soup mix, dry
  • 3 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can beef stock
  • 1 cup red wine, a good one (I use Merlot)
  • 1/4 cup A-1 Sauce
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T butter
  • 1 2 lb package noddles (cooked according to pkg.
  • directions)
  1. Cut the meat into 1 inch pieces, cut off the bone, but keep the bone.
  2. In a heavy skillet heat the butter and oil. Brown the meat and the bones. Place the browned meat and bones into a large crock pot (6-7 quarts).
  3. Add mushrooms to the skillet and saute just a few minutes. Add mushroom soup, onion soup mix, beef stock, A-1 Sauce and wine. Mix well and pour over meat.
  4. Turn the crock pot to low and cover. Let cook for 7-8 hours.
  5. About 1/2 hour before serving, mix 1T cornstarch with a little cold water and gently stir into the beef to thicken. Cover and let finish cooking. Place cooked noodles on serving platter and pour beef over and serve.
This is a updated twist on a dish my mother used to make all the time. I tried it in the crock pot and it works great. It is great on a cool Fall evening, to come home after work, to a house filled with the aroma of the comfort food cooking. Enjoy!
