  1. Hello Cynthia. Beef dishes are a favourite in my family, we often make goulash, also with noodles. I decided to make this stewed beef with egg noodles next time. I have a question: can I make this stew in a pressure cooker to speed up the cooking process, or is it a bad idea?
    Regards,
    Debora

    1. Yes, absolutely!  After searing the beef, cook it in the pressure cooker for 25-35 minutes on high.  Because pressure cookers vary in their recommendations, I suggest you follow the instructions of the brand you own. Let me know how it turns out!

  2. It’s always an amazing thing learning new recipes and trying out different food stuffs. And your blog posts proved that learning tool, that always adds up to my knowledge. The stewed beef with egg noodles looks appetizing and would love to try it out, although i wonder if my cooking would taste as the way it looks on your blog post.

    1. This particular recipe is very forgiving because it’s cooked over such a low heat for a long period of time.  You’ll do fine!  Send me a picture of the finished dish and we can compare but I bet it will look and taste delightful!

  3. Hello,  Thank you for this recipe.  What a great recipe for make and take later in the work week. I like the versatility of the recipe last time we made this we substituted the noodles with mashed potatoes and tonight I will be making some more, adding in the morel mushrooms we had recently picked. (mmmmm)   

    1. I love the thought of serving this with mashed potatoes so I’m going to do that the next time I make it!  I’ll the addition of freshly picked mushrooms will be amazing.
