Beef and Noodles
My husband calls this "homemade hamburger helper". I call it a delicious, fast and easy use for a pound of ground beef!
(or ¾ teaspoon table salt)
dried minced onion
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the egg noodles according to package directions and drain.
While water is heating, brown hamburger, salt and dried minced onion in a large skillet.
Sprinkle flour over the beef mixture and stir until flour coats the beef. Cook for 1 minute.
Pour in beef broth and stir. Stir in thyme and parsley.
Simmer until gravy thickens, about 5 minutes. If it's thicker than you'd like, add in a bit of pasta water to thin.
Add egg noodles to gravy and stir to cover. Serve.
You can also make it with leftover pot roast- just mix a little cold broth with the flour to form a slurry and make the gravy by itself, then toss in the pot roast to heat.
