Easy Beef and Noodles


• 2 cups uncooked egg noodles

• 1 lb lean ground beef

• 1 small yellow onion, chopped

• 2 cloves garlic, minced

• 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

• 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

• 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

• 2 cups beef broth

• 1/2 cup heavy cream (optional)

• Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


• Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

• Meanwhile, add ground beef to a skillet over medium-high heat and cook, breaking up the meat as it browns, until meat is partially cooked. Add onion and cook until soft and beef is no longer pink.

• Reduce heat to medium and add garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and thyme. Cook 1 minute.

• Stir in flour and cook 1 minute more. Stir in beef broth, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

• Let simmer until gravy has thickened, 5-10 minutes. If mixture gets too thick, thin with water or more broth.

• If desired, stir in heavy cream for a creamy finish. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

• Add drained noodles and toss to combine. Enjoy!
