Amish Noodles and Creamy Beef

August 10th, 2010 at 04:21 pm

I have one word to describe tonight’s supper: YUM!
Last week I wrote about going to Arthur to a place called Beachy’s where I purchased some Amish made noodles. I fixed the garlic noodles and after draining them, I added a little butter. They were good by themselves. But, then, I added creamy beef and it was superb.

I have been perusing a cookbook by Stephanie O’Dea called “Make it fast, cook it slow” where she has Crockpot recipes. I have been thinking about trying one, and this was the time! It’s still very hot here and the head index has hit triple digits. What better meal than something done without heating up the stove? I am going to confess, however, I didn’t use the creamy beef recipe exactly as it was written, so although I gave her credit, I’m actually going to tell you how I fixed it.

Crockpot Creamy beef
1 pound beef stew meat
2 T butter
2 T 2% milk or lower
1 T Worcestershire sauce
2 t of your favorite steak sauce
3 T beef broth
1 small chopped onion
1 t herbs, chopped (I used oregano)
2 oz. cream cheese
Use a small slow cooker. Put everything but the cream cheese in the Crockpot. Cook on low 8-10 hours or until meat is tender. Stir in the cream cheese (I diced it up so it would melt quicker) in the last 30 minutes of cooking. Serve over hot buttered noodles, but I bet this would be great over rice too!

My husband gave it 10 out of 10. He loved the Amish noodles, but he adored the creamy beef mixture. As he says, “It’s a keeper!”

    I was craving noodles last night and can whip them up in a jiffy, but had used up all the flour in the kitchen . Was too lazy to go get some more from the basement.... Are we sensing the need for a little wine in that recipe? Wink

    I've been thinking about picking up that book. What do you think of it?

    It's funny you ask, BA, because I just told my husband that if I were to buy a cookbook, this one would be it. It has recipes for things that people actually eat. I know some people eat the fancy dancy stuff, but we don't. She has a variety of things to choose from besides basic stuff too.

    Joan, I bet wine would really add to the flavor. Yum!
