Often times, it’s the simplest of recipes that end up being family favorites.  This Slow Cooker Beef and Noodles is just that.  It’s amazingly simple, but ridiculously delicious.  It’s super savory and hearty.  It’s the definition of comfort food for us.  My family just devours it every time I make it.  And it’s the perfect meal for busy weeknights.  Drop everything in the slow cooker in the morning before work, and dinner is just about ready when you get home – short of cooking the noodles.

One issue that many people run into with gravy-based dishes in the slow cooker is they find the gravy much too thin for their liking at the end of the cook time.  Fixing it is super simple though.  Simply mix 1 tablespoon of corn starch with 2 tablespoons of cold water and and stir it into the slow cooker.  Turn the heat to high and cook for about 20 minutes or until the gravy has thickened.  That will give you plenty of time to get those noodles cooked.

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds beef stew meat
  • 1 (.87-ounce) packet brown gravy mix

  1. In the crock of a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker, stir together the meat, gravy mix, au jus mix, and water.  Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

Recipe Notes

For consistently, I prefer the McCormick Brown Gravy Mix and McCormick Au Jus Mix.  

Concerned about the sodium level?  Opt for reduced sodium gravy and au jus mix.

Find the gravy too thin?  Simply mix 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of cold water and stir it into the slow cooker.  Turn the slow cooker to high and cook for 15 to 20 minutes or until thickened.

  3. I just doubled this recipe to feed 6 big appetites. All I can tell you is that this is an easy meal that went over extremely well. And that’s no easy task with picky teens! I did absolutely nothing differently other than fixing mashed potatoes also so they could choose their favorite. Thanks for making me look like an awesome cook! I did have some left overs……..good enough for my & hubs lunch. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us.
