Beef Tips with Egg Noodles

Okay, I know you all of you are saying. "beef tips with egg noodles; big deal"...but I am saying right here and now that this is a good dish.  YEARS ago I used to make a roast with dry onion soup mix, and canned mushroom soup.  (I heard that "so what, been there done that".)  I'm still saying this is a good dish...especially on a busy day.  Our ironing service didn't work out, so after doing the Monday wash day thing yesterday...there was a lot of ironing to be done today.  Did I mention I HATE to iron.  My sweet, wonderful hubby has been doing the ironing, but there was a LOT today, so instead of our usual Tuesday "date day" lunch out, I made lunch at home, and the two of us had an ironing party on our screened porch!  It was beautiful day, and it made ironing seem less punitive doing it there.  Well, to make a long story even longer, I had planned to make beef stew for dinner, and let it simmer most of the day, but I didn't have any carrots.  Being quick witted...for an old chick..I thought of making this instead.  It made a delicious dinner.  I served it with a simple salad of lettuce. fresh tomatoes, Vidalia onion, and plain old French dressing..yes, the orange stuff.  Sweet iced tea with lemon and mint from my herb garden topped it off.  Good little supper, if I do say so myself. :)

2# marbled stew meat, cubed
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 envelope of dried onion soup ( I use about 2/3 of it because it tends to overpower the dish)
20 oz. beef stock
2 TBS cooking oil
Black pepper
Egg noodles, prepared according to package directions and drained

Put oil in pot; when hot. add beef, season with black pepper, and brown lightly.  I do not add salt, and the onion soup mix tends to be salty.  Add soups and stock, and stir to make smooth gravy.  Turn burner to low, and simmer for several hours, or cook in Crockpot.  I simmered mine 4-5 hours, and it was melt in your mouth tender.  Serve over noodles, or rice.

  1. No, Patsy, what I am saying is, "Wish I had a nice big bowl of this right now!" I want to try this. xo

  2. Ironing is not a popular chore around here, either.:( We "gifted" ourselves a steamer for our birthdays, and it may be a successful endeavor. Just now, I'm not anxious for anyone to see what is hanging in my laundry room.:)
    I say - if it still works, why change it? The beef tips recipe sounds delicious!

  3. I remember the onion soup mix! What flavor! This looks really good!

  4. Ohhhh that looks and sounds like a perfect dish. I hate to iron too!
