When most people think about cooking a roast, they imagine it in a pan surrounded by carrots and potatoes. This is an excellent tasting dish but can often times take a long time to cook. I have found another way to cook my roast. I cook sliced roast beef in my crock pot. It gives the dish enormous flavor, and by adding come egg noodles and carrots, I have a whole meal all in one dish. Here is how I do it.
Things You'll Need
- Sliced roast beef
- 1 can cooked carrots
- 1 1/2 cans beef broth
- 2 dollops sour cream
- Dash of pepper
- Dash of salt
- 8 oz. pkg of egg noodles
- Crock pot
Buy a 1/2 to 3/4 of a pound of sliced roast beef at your local grocery store. Cut the sliced in to bite-sized pieces and set aside. Gather your other ingredients, which you probably already have at home, and lay them out on your counter. That makes it easier to assemble and cuts down on preparation time.
Turn your crock pot on high and add the beef broth, sour cream and egg noodles. Let them cook for about 15 minutes.
Add your roast beef slices, cooked carrots, salt and pepper. Stir them all up and note the texture of your egg noodles.
If your egg noodles are not as soft as you would like them, give them another 5 to 10 minutes to cook. After that, they should definitely be done.
Grab some fancy serving dishes and scoop your sliced roast beef and egg noodles on to the plate. Make sure you get an even amount of both. Serve hot.
Tips & Warnings
- If you want your sauce to be a little bit thicker, all you have to do is add a little flour. Start with 1 tsp. at a time until you get the broth to the consistency you like.
- Garnish your dish with parsley for decoration.
- Crock pots can get quite hot. Wear your oven mitts while dishing out your food to prevent burns.
