Crockpot Beef Stew and Noodles Recipe


1.5 – 2 lbs beef stew meat
1 onion chopped
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
3 carrots sliced
16 oz. beef broth (or water with bullion)
1 tsp garlic powder
2 bay leaves
splash of pepper
splash of Italian spices
8 oz. sour cream (I always use light sour cream and it tastes great)
½ cup flour
¼ cup water
12 – 16 oz egg noodles, cooked

Place stew meat in crockpot. Add carrots, onion, mushrooms, spices and both bay leaves. Pour broth over meat and vegetables. Cook on low for 7 hours. Take out bay leaves. In a separate bowl mix sour cream, flour and ½ cup water together. Then pour approx. 1 cup of broth from crockpot into sour cream mixture. Mix well. Pour sour cream mixture into crockpot and mix well. Turn crockpot to high and cook for 20-30 minutes to thicken gravy. Serve over cooked noodles with a roll and a side salad or green vegetable and enjoy!
