Amish Beef & Noodles

Amish Beef & Noodles


That gravy is everything.
  • 4 tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 lb. beef rump roast, cut into 2" cubes
  • 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 4 tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper, plus more
  • 2 large yellow onions, finely chopped (about 3 c.)
  • 8 c. low-sodium beef broth, divided
  • 12 oz. wide egg noodles
  1. In a large pot over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil. Place beef in a large bowl and toss with flour, 2 teaspoons salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper.
  2. Add half of beef to pot and cook, turning occasionally, until browned on 2 sides, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer beef to a plate; repeat with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and beef.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Cook onion and ½ teaspoon salt, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Return beef to pot and add 6 cups broth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until beef is tender enough to shred with a fork, 2 to 2½ hours.
  4. Transfer beef to a large plate and shred with 2 forks into bite-size pieces.
  5. Pour remaining 2 cups broth into same pot and bring to a boil. Add noodles and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Return beef to pot, toss to combine, and season with remaining 1½ teaspoons salt as needed.
  6. Divide beef and noodles among bowls. Serve topped with lots of pepper.
