Chuck Roast with Homemade Noodles

I have been on a "classic" dinner kick. This recipe was in another one of my old "Taste of Home" books given to me by my grandma. I was intimidated and excited at the same time about making homemade noodles. So glad I tried it! They were a little time consuming, but they really were the star of the dish. Next time you want to impress someone. try making this dinner. You and everyone else will love it :)

You need:
1 boneless beef chuck roast (3 to 4 pounds)
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2-1/2 cups water, divided
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 can (14 ounces) beef brothm
Pepper to taste

In a dutch oven, brown the onion and roast in oil. Add 1/2 cup of water. cover and bake at 325 for 3 hours.

Meanwhile, for noodles, combine flour and salt in a bowl. Make a well in the center. Beat milk and egg, pour into flour.

Stir to form a stif dough. Roll out onto a floured surface in a 15x12 rectangle. Cut dough into 1/8 inch strips ( a pizza cutter works great). Refridgerate until ready to use.

Remove roast and keep warm. Add broth and remaining water to pan.

Bring broth to a boil and add noodles. Continue to boil for 8-10 minutes.

With a slotted spoon, remove noodles and serve with the beef. Spoon some broth over the top of both, enjoy!


  1. Try those noodles in a chicken soup! They are super yum! I hadn't thought about putting them with a pot roast, I'm going to try it, it looks delish!!!

  2. My mom has always made "beef & noodles" so its a combination I'm used to. Definitely give it a try. Those noodles cooked in the chuck roast broth are the best!

  3. What a lovely, comforting meal. Thank you so much for sharing it. I've pinned it for future reference.
