Crockpot Beef and Noodles Recipe
- 1 Crockpot or Slow Cooker
- 1 Mixing Bowl or Large Dish
- 2 Beef Roasts or Steaks (about 4 lbs total) Cubed into 1 in. pieces
- 1 Packet Brown Gravy Mix
- 1 Packet Beefy Onion Soup Mix
- 2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup 10 oz. each
- 1 Box Beef Broth 32 oz.
- 1 bag Reames Frozen Egg Noodles
- 2 tbsp Butter
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- ½ cup Olive Oil
- 1 tbsp Minced Garlic
- ¼ cup Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 tsp Ground Pepper
- 1½ tbsp Dried Parsley
- 1½ tbsp Garlic Powder
- Place your cubed beef in a bowl or dish (or even a Ziplock bag). Whisk together all ingredients of the marinade, & pour over your cubed beef. Stir to evenly coat the pieces. Cover or seal, and place in the refrigerator to marinate for a few hours, or overnight.If you don't have time to marinate the beef after adding the marinade ingredients, move to the next step.
- In a mixing bowl or or dish, whisk or stir together the brown gravy mix, the beefy onion soup mix, the cream of mushroom soup, and ½ the carton of beef broth. Set the bowl aside, and refrigerate the rest of the beef broth.
- Add your beef to the bottom of the crockpot, including any leftover marinade. Then pour the mixture of cream of mushroom soup, beef broth, beefy onion soup mix, & the brown gravy mix over the cubed beef and stir well to coat all pieces.
- Cook on low for about 7-8 hours, stirring occasionally.
- Then add in the frozen egg noodles, and the butter. Stir to submerge the noodles, and add in more of your leftover beef broth. You'll want to stir about every 15 minutes for the next 1- 1.5 hours, and continue to add in the broth as the noodles take on more liquid until you use the rest of the carton of broth.
- When the egg noodles are cooked to your desired consistency, turn off the crockpot. Salt & pepper to taste, & dish the beef and noodles out on plates or in bowls. Let cool at least a few minutes before serving.
- Serve with your favorite sides, & enjoy!
Crockpot Low vs. High Cooking Time
- Do you have to cook this on low? No – but if you’re going to cook this on high, be sure to reduce your cooking time
- Cooking on High: About 6 hours before adding in the noodles, and 30 minutes to an hour after you add the noodles.
What Meat Do You Use for Beef and Noodles?
- I used round steaks for mine, but roasts are usually my go-to option! Chuck roasts and chuck steaks are the cuts I like to use the most.
- While you don’t have to use the marinade, it does give the meat & the overall dish an extra layer of flavor.
What Noodles Should I Use?
- My favorite is always Reames Frozes Egg Noodles
- You can use the non-frozen egg noodles instead, but I would cut down the additional cooking time after adding them OR cook them separate. If you cook them separate, you can drain them, mix them in with the beef mixture, & serve immediately
- Make sure you’re using a 7 Quart Crock-Pot (or other brand slow cooker) or larger. In the market for a new Crock-Pot? Try this Crock-Pot 7 Quart slow cooker.
What Side Dishes Go with Beef and Noodles?
- Mashed Potatoes
- Green Beans
- Sweet Corn
- Roasted Potatoes
- Warm Rolls or Bread
- Brussel Sprouts
- Side Salad
- Mashed Cauliflower
- Roasted Broccoli
