Hearty Beef and Noodles

This is a longtime family favorite, and my kids always asked to bring home friends on nights we served it. Now my oldest son is in the Army and has had his wife call home for the recipe. Here's hefty “man food” at its easy best! —Sylvia Streu, Norman, Oklahoma

    I made this on 6/20/16. A couple of changes were made to the recipe,and the changes are as follows. Instead of the beef, I used " Boneless Country Style Ribs " cut into strips. Then when it came to add the sour cream only 1/3 cup was used. My SO said it would've been a five if I left out the sour cream. But I will make this again. :) Thanks for posting.

    I just made this for dinner. It had a good taste but was really thick. What did I do wrong?

    This is good!! And it smells heavenly while simmering. I followed the recipe exact, other than tossing the beef with kosher salt and pepper. Tasty!!!
