This recipe for Beef & Noodles is one of those recipes that I hold close to my heart. It was one of my MOST favorite meals as a child growing up.

To me, this meal just screams COMFORT! Thick egg noodles, engulfed in a flavorful gravy made from simmering the beef, onions, celery, in the beef stock.

I loved when I asked my mom, “What’s for dinner?” and she answered “Beef & Noodles!” It was always one of my most favorite meals.

After she answered, the worst part was waiting for it to be time to eat!

I first posted this recipe in May of 2014, and once I decided to add the recipe video, I decided it needed a little “facelift” and to be re-shared.

Even more so now that I am completely OBSESSED with making my own egg noodles. Another thing I loved to do when I was growing up.

So, when I re-made this recipe recently I used them, and it was a total game-changer.

I mean … just LOOK!!

Now don’t let the whole homemade noodle thing intimidate you. This meal is perfectly fine with the frozen egg noodles or the dry ones, too.

I add a little cornstarch/water mixture to thicken up the gravy. And then toss in the noodles.

Alternatively, you could dredge the beef tips in flour, salt, and pepper, and brown it in a bit of oil.

I just always omit that part – it goes faster this way, and I get to eat it sooner!

Crock Pot Beef & Noodles - An Affair from the Heart

Beef & Noodles in the Crockpot

Although I typically make this on the stove, you can do all of the prep with your crockpot if you desire. I have done it both ways.

For the crockpot, you just put the meat, onions and celery and stock in the slow cooker and let it go on low all day. Thicken the gravy when you get home and add in the noodles.

Either way — you have to try it!
