Tender Beef and Noodles Recipe

Tender Beef and Noodles Recipe

Because I often work outside with my husband on our cattle ranch, I appreciate convenient recipes like this. The main dish cooks by itself and is ready for us when we come in the house. If you like, substitute stew meat for the roast. Either way, it's a hearty everyday meal with a special tasty twist.

"Good. I doubled the 9 ingredients to have more sauce. Need to use less salt. Left out the caraway seeds b/c my family doesn't like them. Forgot the sour cream, but it was good without it (added it in late and it was still good)."
