1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped

1 ½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup flour
½ cup sour cream
2 cups leftover meat
salt and pepper to taste
½ pkg. of Old Fashioned Egg Noodles, Medium Size, (16 oz. size pkg.)

I have this Tramontina frying pan, and I use it almost daily - I love it! And since stainless steel cookware is one of the safest types of cookware that you can use, I feel good about the meals that I prepare in this pan.

Pour in the broth. (If you do not have enough leftover broth, you can use canned broth or bouillon cubes dissolved in water.)

Add the Worcestershire sauce to the onions, peppers, and broth in the frying pan.

Make a thickener (flour and water) to stir into the broth mixture to thicken. Do not thicken the broth to a thick, gravy consistency. 

Stir in the sour cream, and stir until well-blended.

Chop up the leftover roast beef, and add it to the gravy mixture in the fry pan. Heat the mixture over a medium/low heat until hot.

Add salt and pepper to taste. 

Pour the noodles into a stainless steel colander to drain, and then add them to the gravy mixture in the frying pan. Stir until all the ingredients are well-blended. Stir again just before serving.

In Closing

Before purchasing any piece of meat, think of the many ways you can use it, and think about planned leftover meals like this tasty dinner dish. Quite often, we can purchase a larger roast that we can get several meals from - cook once, and eat multiple meals. This is particularly helpful when we have so many things to do; yet, we do want to have a sit down dinner with the family every night. This recipe is a great comfort food dish, too.

I like quick and easy recipes. If you do, too, then you'll want to check out some of my other recipes like my Easy Dinner Recipe and my Easy Breakfast Casserole recipe.

If you don’t have leftover meat from a roast, then you could purchase a small piece of sirloin. Slice the sirloin as you would to make a stir-fry, cook it in the fry pan, add in the onions and peppers, and proceed with the recipe. Don’t forget to purchase a can of broth, or use bouillon cubes to make the broth for this beef and noodles recipe.
