Usually when I make a roast, it's potatoes all the way but this time I switched things up with homemade dumplings! Ummm...soooo, yeah. Yum! If you've never made dumplings, then you're in for a real treat! Easy and so much more tasty than store bought! This recipe is homey and even the leftovers are good!!
Roast Beef with Homemade Noodles
1 2-3 pound chuck roast
1 medium onion
6 cups water ~ divided
1 tablespoon beef bullion (3 cubes)
salt & pepper to taste
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons milk
Slice onion and place in the bottom of your crock pot. Add 1 cup of water. Sprinkle with bullion or place cubes in crockpot.
Place roast on top of onions. Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours.
For the noodles:**
Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl.
Make a well in the center. Add eggs and milk and stir to form a stiff dough.
Turn dough onto a well-floured surface and knead a couple of minutes until smooth. Cut dough in half.
Roll each piece into a 15"x12" inch rectangle.
into 1/8" strips. Place strips onto a plate in layers, giving each
layer a light sprinkling of flour to help eliminate sticking.
Cover and chill until ready to cook.
When roast is done, pour liquid into a large saucepan.
Add remaining 5 cups water and bring to a boil.
Add noodles and cook about 10 minutes, until tender.
Drain noodles (save liquid for pouring over roast, if desired) and place on a platter. Add roast and serve!
** Ready made egg noodles may be substituted for homemade
