  • 1.5 Pound Beef Roast cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 Onion diced
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Thyme Leaves
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Cold Water
  • 12 oz Extra Wide Egg Noodles


  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat.  Add in the butter and onion and sauté until the onion is translucent (3-4 minutes).
  • Add in the beef and brown the beef in the skillet with the onions (8-10 minutes) over medium heat.
  • Then pour 2 cups of the beef broth into the skillet and add in the seasoning.  Stir to combine and bring the mixture to a boil.  Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes until the beef is tender. Watch closely and slowly add in the last cup of the beef broth as the broth starts to cook off.
  • Mix the cornstarch into the 1/4 cup cold water in a separate bowl.  Stir this mixture into the skillet mixture and allow this to cook for 10 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.
  • While the sauce is thickening, cook the egg noodles in a separate pot based on the package instructions.
  • Serve the beef mixture over the egg noodles and enjoy!
