This one is bullet proof kids and comes straight from This Girl’s mama – as ma says, just let the crock pot do the work for you! I’ve shared this family recipe with friends, and I’ve heard some feedback that they can’t believe you don’t add more seasoning. Trust me, it’s perfect just the way it is – simply follow these steps and you can’t go wrong!


Ingredients (makes half a large pot full, about 4 large servings):

  • 1 Beef Roast
  • At least, 1 box (32 oz) beef stock – I would recommend having another box just in case
  • 1 bag (12 – 16 oz) of Kluski Noodles
  • Salt & pepper


  • Put the roast in a crock pot and cover with 1 box of beef broth. You want the meat mostly covered with liquid, so you may need to add some water depending how large the roast is. Cover with lid and cook in crock pot on low (if you do this before you leave for work it should be nice and ready when you get home at night). The goal is to have the meat really tender and easy to tear. Once it reaches that point, take the meat out and let it rest for at least 5 – 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, take the beef liquid out of the crock pot and strain it into a large pot. Depending how long you’ve let the crock pot go for will depend on how much liquid you have left after straining. If it doesn’t look like enough to boil the noodles in, add the other box of reserved stock. Then bring the stock to a rolling boil. Once the stock is boiling, add the Kluski noodles and cook per the package (about 8 minutes). You’ll want the noodles to still have a bite, so per the package directions make sure you under cook it by a minute or two. Cooking the noodles in the liquid will help thicken the broth.
  • While the noodles are cooking, go back to the meat and cut / tear it into bite size pieces. When the noodles are just about done cooking, start adding the meat to the pot – the hot liquid will warm the meat back up. Once all the meat is incorporated, simply salt and pepper to taste….then serve in a bowl (you’ll want to dish out the broth, noodles and meat together – eat it like you would a stew)!

I also like to serve this meal with a salad and either garlic bread or bread and butter 🙂

Now that Dad is cooking, I made an adjustment. I bought the beef already cut up. Prior to putting it in the crock pot I browned it. Also, I didn’t tell Mom but I put a dash of garlic powder on the meat in addition to the salt and pepper.

We had this for dinner tonight.
