This is always a delicious comforting meal! The crock pot takes all of the work out of this meal! I normally prep it the night before then throw everything in the crock pot in the morning and come home to a lovely smelling house!
1 can of golden mushroom soup
1 can of cream of mushroom with roasted garlic
1 1/2 lbs of stew meat
1 package of sliced mushrooms
1 white onion
1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 tablespoon of beef broth base (this comes in a jar)
8 oz cream cheese
8 oz sour cream
1 package of egg noodles
fresh parsley for garnish
1 tablespoon of butter.
In a medium frying pan, melt the 1 tablespoon of butter. Once the butter is all melted, add the stew beef. Allow the beef to sear on one side. Once the side is seared, flip and lightly sear the other side. When both sides are lightly seared, place them into a mixing bowl. Chop up the onion and mushrooms. Add them to the mixing bowl with the 2 soups, minced garlic and add 1/2 tablespoon of the beef broth base. Mix well. Add the mixture to the crock pot and place it on low. Allow this to cook for 8-10 hours. Once the meal is finished cooking, fill a large cooking pot half way with water. Set on high. Once it starts boiling, add the egg noodles and stir occasionally. While your noodles are cooking, cube up the cream cheese and slowly mix into the crock pot. Once all of the cream cheese is melted, add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of beef broth base and all of the sour cream, stirring slowly. At this point, your noodles should be finished cooking. Lightly rinse them with hot water. Plate up the pasta. Once the beef mixture is well mixed, top a generous size portion on top of the noodles and garnish with the fresh parsley. Serving this meal with buttermilk biscuits adds some flare to this meal!
