- Beef Broth—Unsalted broth works best.
- Spices—A savory blend of basil, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
🥣How to Make Crock Pot Beef and Noodles
- Cut your beef into pieces and add it to your crockpot.
- Add the salt, basil, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper to a small bowl. Mix well.
- Sprinkle your seasonings over the meat and stir until well-coated.
- In a separate bowl, combine your cream of mushroom soup and Worcestershire sauce.
- Pour over the meat and stir. Pour your beef broth over the seasoned meat and mix again.
- Cover the beef and cook on low for 7-8 hours until juicy and tender.
- Half an hour before you are ready to eat cook the egg noodles. Stir them into the beef mixture in the slow cooker.
Because this crock pot beef and noodles is rich and hearty, I usually serve it with lighter sides. Try pairing your beef with a crisp, refreshing salad, roasted asparagus, or fresh fruit. A few slices of garlic bread make an excellent addition.

Be sure to check out the step by step instructions
- Use a Crock Pot liner for easy cleanup.
- Want to add some extra nutrition to this beef noodle casserole? Try tossing 1-2 cups of vegetables into the slow cooker with the beef! My favorite additions are peas, yellow onions, green beans, carrots, mushrooms, or celery.
- Stir in a cup of sour cream to give it a beef stroganoff flavor for a classic family meal.
- If the sauce seems too thick add another half cup of broth and stir in the crock pot.
Because noodles tend to get mushy when cooked in the slow cooker, I recommend cooking them separately! About 30 minutes before your beef is ready to serve, cook the egg noodles on the stovetop according to package directions. Avoid letting the noodles sit in the gravy for too long before serving.
It is unnecessary, but if you have time, go for it! Browning your beef before adding it to the crockpot will add a depth of flavor to the meat you can taste.
The best way to get tender beef is to cook the meat on low heat for extended periods. This slow braise will create deliciously soft and juicy chunks of meat.
