How to make slow cooker beef and noodles (video)

Print this recipe
This meal is great for a quick and easy weeknight dinner. My family loved this meal, even my picky 6-year old. I can never go wrong with a pasta meal in this house.
I start with well-trimmed beef stew meat. I sometimes have to trim the fat off the meat before adding it to the slow cooker, sometimes I luck out and the store has nice trimmed meat like pictured below.

I add onions, mushrooms, pepper and oregano.

Then I add 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup, it makes a great sauce for the dish.

I cover and cook this for 5 hours on high. After this has cooked I add cooked egg noodles and frozen peas.

3. Towards the end of the cooking time, cook the noodles according to the package directions. Drain.
4. Add the cooked noodles on top of the meat and sauce in the slow cooker. Add the peas. Stir until everything is combined. Add salt to taste.

Tip: This can be freezer meal friendly! Add the raw beef, seasonings, onions, mushrooms and soup into a freezer gallon plastic bag. Squeeze out excess air. Freeze for up to a month. They day before you are ready to cook this thaw out the freezer bag in the fridge. Add the contents of the bag to the slow cooker and continue with the above recipe.
