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!

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.
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.
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.
