Beef & Noodles

How to make Beef and Noodles.

Ingredients: Serves 6

  • 2 pounds lean beef stew meat in chunks
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cups diced celery
  • 2 tablespoons beef bouillon powder or paste
  • 1 (16oz.) package of dried linguine (or other pasta of your choice)
  • 3 cups seasoned beef broth (homemade, canned, or made from bouillon powder/paste)
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • ½ cup water


  1. Place the beef, onion, celery, and bouillon powder or paste in a slow cooker and cook on high for about 5 hours, until the meat falls apart on its own.
  2. Break the pasta into pieces about 4 inches long; if using store-bought linguine, this usually means breaking it roughly into thirds.
  3. Cook the pasta in several quarts of water in a large soup pot to al dente stage.
  4. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot.
  5. Add the meat mixture and beef broth.
  6. Stir well and allow to come to a boil.
  7. In a small jar with a screw-on lid, combine the corn starch with the water.
  8. Shake vigorously until no lumps of corn starch remain.
  9. Pour this mixture slowly into the pot, stirring constantly.
  10. Allow everything to cook and bubble for a few minutes, until beef and noodles have thickened somewhat.
  11. Serve immediately and enjoy!
