The best beef and egg noodles you'll ever have. Affordable, quick, and yummy! I have to give credit to my grandma. She used to cook this for her 5 kids and then later for all her grandkids.

  • Melt butter in the same skillet over medium heat and saute onion until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Add steak to onion and pour beef stock over steak; season with bay leaves, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover skillet with a lid, and simmer until steak is tender, 50 minutes to 1 hour 50 minutes. Stir peas and cornstarch into steak mixture; cook uncovered until liquid thickens, about 10 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes; drain. Serve beef mixture over noodles.

I made this recipe tonight for my husband and three young children (6 year old, 4 year old and 20 month old). They absolutely LOVED it!!! It was very tasty and very simple! The sauce is delicious! I didn't have sirloin steak or beef stock so I used turkey meatballs and chicken stock instead and it was still fabulous!! This is a going to be a keeper in our house and next time I will be sure to use the sirloin steak. Thanks so much for posting this husband and kid friendly meal. So quick to make as well. Oh and one more thing, I also didn't have regular onion. I used a red onion which added a sweetness to the sauce. YUMMMMMY!!!! Thanks again for adding a staple meal to our house! M~E Read More

This recipe is pretty good. It doesn't make much sauce though. I would suggest using at least 2 cups of beef stock so there is more sauce. I took the advice of another person and cooked my noodles in beef stock. It was really good. I will be adding mushrooms next time to the beef mixture. I used stew meat instead of sirloin. I made homemade mashed potatoes with it as a side. Read More

I made this last night with some minor modifications. I seem unable to use a recipe without making at least one change. I doubled the recipe (I had 2.37 lbs. of sirloin) and added an extra cup of beef stock and half a cup of red wine. I cooked the onion with diced garlic, around 6 cloves worth. I make a batch of garlic every two weeks, at least two bulbs, diced in the food processor and stored in olive oil in a glass jar, so I can only guess at the amount. Instead of peas I used two 7 oz. cans of drained, sliced mushrooms. I used about 1/2 to 3/4 of a teaspoon of thyme instead of pinches. This came out amazingly tasty. I highly recommend adding red wine to the beef stock. My boyfriend and I ate huge portions last night and it made a great lunch for me today, too. I will make this again. Read More

I have tried a few recipes in the past for beef tips and noodles, all with not so great results. This is by far the best one that I have made. My husband, who always rolls his eyes when I "experiment" with dinner, actually loved this one and said that I could make it as often as I wanted too!!! Read More

This was really good, I had some leftover peas and a sirloin steak in the refrig so I whipped this up for dinner. I didn't have any beef stock so I subbed a beef bouillon cube and cup of water but it was still very good. I used fresh thyme from the garden and I made homemade egg noodles from this site. I will definitely make this meal again. (After this simmered for an hour plus, there was very little liquid left, next time I make this I will add another cup. A little red wine, garlic and mushrooms would be nice additions too.) Read More

I only had ground beef so I browned that and left it in big chunks. I followed the rest of the recipe but did double the stock and I am glad as I actually would still have liked a little more gravy. Hubby liked it, even though he hates peas. Read More
