Creamy beef and noodles with fall-apart-tender stew meat and buttery egg noodles…
It’s like French onion soup had a baby with beef stroganoff: two deliciously easy comfort food recipes combined in the crockpot for an effortless make-ahead family dinner.

I’ve come to the realization that I only work out so I can eat without feeling guilty.  Does anyone else feel like that sometimes?  Of course I work out to stay healthy too, but realistically, I’m mostly doing it to maintain myself because I like to eat wayyyyy to much.

Some people workout to fit in skinny jeans and get 6 packs, and I work out so I can eat creamy beef and noodles for dinner ;).

You know what I love most about the winter?  Aside from being able to wear big sweaters to hide my “winter body”, I love all the cozy comforting crockpot recipes like my Easy Pumpkin Chili or Slow Cooker Apple Cider Pork Tenderloin.  Seriously easy and delicious dinner recipes that are ready to go after a long day’s work :).

The most important step in this recipe that I advise you NOT TO SKIP is searing the meat prior to adding it to the crockpot. This is what seals all the delicious juices in and keeps the meat from drying out; making it perfectly fall-apart-tender.

I know the whole point of the crockpot is not having to worry about cooking anything on the stove, but trust me this step is so worth it.  No one likes tough, stew meat!!

Recipe Notes

*Recipe adapted from The Salty Marshmallow-original recipe here.

*I recommend storing the noodles separate from the beef mixture to prevent the noodles from getting too soft and soggy for leftovers.

*DO NOT skip searing the meat prior to cooking in the crockpot.  You may end up with tougher meat if you don't.
