Easy Beef Stew with Noodles

117

Affordable chuck roast is a great choice for stews because it becomes tender and flavorful as it simmers. Cutting the meat into small pieces shortens the cooking time.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 pounds boneless beef chuck, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 medium onion, sliced lengthwise
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cans (14.5 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 pound carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch dice
  • 2 cups egg noodles
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon red-wine vinegar

Directions

  1. In a large Dutch oven or heavy pot, heat oil over high. Add beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook until seared and brown, about 6 minutes. Add onion and season with salt and pepper. Cook until onion begins to soften (reducing heat, if necessary), about 5 minutes. Stir in flour until beef and onion are coated and cook 1 to 2 minutes (do not burn). Add broth and 3 cups water, stirring and scraping up browned bits. Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook until beef is tender, about 25 minutes.

  2. Add carrots and potatoes and cook until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Add noodles and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. To serve, stir in parsley and vinegar.

Cook's Notes

Cutting vegetables into evenly sized cubes helps to ensure that they'll finish cooking at the same time.

    So simple and very tasty! I used 1/4 cup acini di pepe instead because I like less noodle. A few of us have been sick and this really hit the spot!!! Chicken broth goes really well with the beef.

    I made this last night following the directions exactly. It was DELICIOUS! You must be sure to brown the beef well. I found it best to do it in smaller batches. It was very "beefy" tasting and my husband loved it. The leftovers tonight were even better.

    Made w/ 1 can chicken, 1 beef, and 1 veg broth. Used dried parsley (3 teaspoons). Good.

    Mine turned out lighter in color than the picture because I used chicken broth which I also thought was strange. Maybe the recipe is supposed to say beef broth?

    Yes, I too would like to know if this can be made in a crock pot?
