Review and Recipes: Savory Beef Noodle Dinner, Tomato Slaw and "Biscuit" Rolls

I finally got to make Emily's Savory Beef Noodle Dinner tonight. I could just tell from the ingredients that my crew would really like it! They did!! I did mix my noodles and sauce together, because the kids were taking a portion of it over to Aunt Jean's to eat supper with her. This made it easier for them to transport the food. Aunt Jean fried them a big batch of Ms. Judy's okra, too! What a treat!!

When I asked Logan if they all liked the noodle dish, he replied, "We loved it! Why haven't you made this before?!"

Larry and I ate quickly before heading out to a meeting. He wanted seconds but decided to save it for his lunch tomorrow instead. This is a fairly large dish. There was enough for Dude's lunch tomorrow, too. The only change I made was using fresh mushrooms instead of the canned. M.C. loves fresh mushrooms, but she just about won't eat canned ones. Go figure!

I made a quick side of Tomato Coleslaw with a package of coleslaw mix and some of Judy's tomatoes. We really like this slaw!

Here's a repost of the recipes:

Savory Beef Noodle Dinner

A super easy and quick-to-fix-meal that will have dinner on the table in a jiffy! Hubby declared it was “really good”. ~ Emily

1 pound lean ground beef
1 (10-1/2 oz.) can condensed French onion soup, undiluted
1 (10-1/2 oz) can beef gravy
1 (4 oz) can mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons corn starch
2 tablespoons water
Hot cooked noodles
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the soup, gravy, mushrooms and black pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the corn starch and water until smooth; stir into beef mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over hot cooked noodles. Makes 4 servings.

Tomato Slaw

Combine a package of slaw mix with a peeled and chopped tomato; toss with desired amount of mayonnaise. Liberally add salt and pepper. Use a small bit of sugar, too, if you like.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

"Biscuit” Rolls

I buy the cheap, store-brand butter-flavored canned biscuits. Depending on the size of your family, you can use the 5-count or 10-count rolls of biscuits.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter.

Spray muffin pan with cooking spray. Place a refrigerated biscuit into each muffin cup. Spoon melted butter over each biscuit. Bake for about 10 minutes.


  1. You have the best recipes. I have never had tomato slaw, but my mom makes slaw with mayo, a bit of sugar, and a shot of lemon juice with salt and pepper. I have never heard of anyone doing slaw like that. We did not add the tomatoes but I think I would like that too.

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on the cheese grits. I love grits but these are especially and a family favorite. Blessings.

  2. Yum!! That beef and noodles look wonderful, the recipe sounds good too. I will try it on my hubs, probably one day in the next week or two.

  3. My mother always put tomatoes in her slaw and you know I havent done this in a few years. I had actually forgotten how good it is, I do plan to put some of our fresh tomatoes in my next batch of slaw !
    Thanks for the reminder and the great recipes, they all look and sound so good !!

  4. Looks yummy. It's getting on dinner time here and my tummy is really rumbling as I read :)
