Key Ingredients

For the pot roast, you’ll need: olive oil, chuck roast, an onion, garlic, beef broth, Italian seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Once that has cooked, you’ll add the dry egg noodles with some extra beef broth, and give those a chance to cook.

Then, at the end, you’ll stir in the sour cream. Garnish with parmesan cheese and chopped parsley before serving. That’s it!

How To Make Beef and Noodles

  1. First, make the pot roast: Season chuck roast with salt and pepper on both sides. Then, preheat olive oil over high heat in a medium skillet. Add beef, and brown on both sides. Remove from the pan, and place in the slow cooker. Add onions and garlic to the skillet with beef drippings, and sauté for until browned. Remove from the pan, and add to the slow cooker. Add in 1 1/2 cups beef broth and Italian seasoning to the skillet and deglaze the pan scraping up brown bits (aka where all the flavor is). Pour broth into the slow cooker. Add the Worcestershire sauce, and stir well to combine. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or until the meat is fall apart tender. Remove the chuck roast from the slow cooker, and shred on a plate with two forks.
  2. Next, cook the noodles: Add dry uncooked egg noodles to the slow cooker. Add in an additional 1/2 cup of beef broth or more as needed. Cover and cook on high for 20-25 minutes or until the noodles are tender and most of the liquid is absorbed.
  3. Make the cream sauce and serve: Stir in sour cream and add in the shredded beef back to the slow cooker. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with parmesan cheese and fresh chopped parsley, if desired, and enjoy!
