Reviews for Tender Beef over Noodles
"Very yummy and easy recipe for a weeknight dinner :) Only gave it 4 stars because it badly needed salt! I didn't brown the meat and it turned out delicious, also cooked it in the oven on 300C for 2-1/2 hours."
"I've been making this recipe since 2009 and I'm making it again tomorrow. I love it!!"
"Very easy to make and quite good. I doubled the recipe and made it for my daughters as well and the enjoyed it."
"The beef was tender but the sauce had too much of a ketchup taste to it"
"Delicious!!! My husband loved it and has already requested I make it again and I will!But i doubled the noodles to 2 cups which worked out much better. I could see I was going to have a lot of meat mixture, even though I followed the recipe. Wonderful flavor!"
