Beef with Gravy and Buttered Noodles

This was supposed to be traditional beef stroganoff.....  However, the gravy was so fantastic that I completely forgot to add the sour cream to make it traditional stroganoff!  Which is why I've changed the name to beef with gravy and buttered noodles.  Let me tell you--I go weak in the knees for meat gravy.  Seriously.  Any meat gravy.  This recipe has one of the BEST meat gravies that I have ever had--so unbelievably DELICIOUS!!!  The best part?  It's made in a crockpot!  SCORE!

{Saute mushrooms}

{Brown onions and garlic}

{Deglaze the pan (tutorial tomorrow!)}

{Watch out!!!  It'll steam up pretty quickly!}

{Cooked mushrooms, onions and garlic with beef in the crockpot awaiting the saucy goodness!}

{Beef stroganoff is ready to cook for 6-8 hours on low}

{Making a roux to thicken the sauce}

{Add liquid from the crockpot to make a thick sauce}

{Add sauce back into the crockpot}

{Buttered noodles!}

{Serve over buttered noodles and with veggies}

Beef with Gravy and Buttered Noodles

Serves 4

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pint button mushrooms, sliced
1 onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup dry red wine
1 1/2 cup beef broth
1 pound stew meat
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
4 oz dried pasta
2 tablespoons butter
  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet.
  2. Add mushrooms and sear until browned on one side; remove from pan and place in crockpot.
  3. Add onions and garlic to hot pan; sear until golden brown; remove from pan and place in crockpot.
  4. Carefully add wine and beef broth to hot pan to deglaze.  Use a wooden spoon and scrape any browned bits off the bottom of the pan.
  5. Add liquid, meat, pepper, and bay leaf to crockpot.
  6. Turn crockpot to low and cook for 6-8 hours.
  7. Remove as much liquid as possible from the crockpot; reserve.
  8. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan; add flour and make a roux.
  9. Add liquid from crockpot and simmer until thickened; add back to crockpot.
  10. Meanwhile, cook pasta (how to cook pasta here).
  11. When pasta has been drained, place it in a bowl and add butter.
  12. Stir butter and pasta until butter is melted.
  13. Serve beef and sauce over the buttered pasta.
I might make this again someday with the addition of sour cream (1 cup)--not that I need much of an excuse to make gravy, and if I don't forget AGAIN! 

Have you ever made something but stopped right in the middle because it was that good already?  Please share so I don't feel too bad!  (Not really possible since I made fabulous gravy and ate it too!)
