Crock Pot Beef and Noodles

March 1, 2024 - Country Cooking

Crock Pot Beef and Noodles is made up of tender pieces of shredded beef in a salty broth mixed with thick and tender egg noodles. It’s a hearty, stick to your ribs Midwestern meal and with the help of a slow cooker, it couldn’t be easier to make.

Last March my husband, brother, and I spent a week in Indianapolis helping my son recover from surgery following chemotherapy for testicular cancer. We were looking for down home comfort food while we were there and we found it at 2 different places. First it was stuffed cabbage and pastrami sandwiches at Shapiro’s Deli and then Beef and Noodles at the Steer-in.

There’s no place in Charlotte to get a hearty Beef and Noodles meal like the Steer-in serves so I attempted to recreate it at home.

While this  Crockpot Beef and Noodles doesn’t have as rich and intense a flavor as the Steer-in’s does, it is an easy, delicious meal that will have you going back for seconds.

How To Make Crock Pot Beef and Noodles

To make Crock Pot Beef and Noodles, place a 2 pound beef chuck roast in your slow cooker with a can of condensed mushroom soup, a can of beef broth, and a packet of dry onion soup mix, plus some garlic. Let it cook on low for a good 9-10 hours so that it gets super tender and the flavors really have time to develop.

Shred the beef, add a bag of frozen egg noodles and enough water to submerge the noodles. Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook 1 more hour.

Then you are ready to dig into some serious comfort food.

Recipe Tips

Many people prefer to cook the noodles separately as they can taste a little pasty when cooked in the slow cooker.

Also, some people find their noodles are not done after cooking for 1 hour on LOW. Depending on your slow cooker, it may take up to 2 hours for your noodles to fully cook.

1 (2-pound) beef chuck roast1 envelope beefy onion soup mix from a 2.2 ounce box1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted4 cloves garlic, minced1 (14-ounce) can beef broth4-6 cups water2 (12-ounce) packages frozen egg noodlessalt and pepper to tasteparsley for garnish, optional


Place beef roast in slow cooker. Sprinkle onion soup mix on top. Add mushroom soup and garlic and smear on top of roast. Add beef broth.
Put lid on crockpot and cook 9 to 10 hours on LOW.
Remove lid and shred beef using 2 forks. Add noodles and enough water to mostly submerge the noodles. I try to use as little water as possible because I don’t want to water down the flavor. It’s ok if some of the noodles are sticking slightly out of the liquid. There is enough moisture and condensation in the crock pot to cook them thoroughly.
Cook for 1 hour. Check for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.


Some people prefer to cook the noodles separately and stir them in at the end.

Also, some people have found that their noodles are not fully cooked after 1 hour on LOW. Depending on your slow cooker, you may need to cook the noodles for as long as 2 hours.
