– 1 pound beef chuck roast, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
– 8 ounces wide egg noodles
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 2 onions, thinly sliced
– 3 cloves garlic, minced
– 4 cups beef broth
– 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
– 1 teaspoon dried thyme
– Salt and pepper to taste
– Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


1. **Brown the Beef:**
– Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.
– Add the beef pieces to the pot and cook until browned on all sides, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the beef from the pot and set aside.

2. **Sauté the Onions and Garlic:**
– In the same pot, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil.
– Add the thinly sliced onions and minced garlic to the pot, and sautĂ© until the onions are soft and translucent, about 5-7 minutes.

3. **Create the Sauce:**
– Sprinkle the flour over the onions and garlic, and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring constantly.
– Slowly pour in the beef broth, stirring continuously to prevent lumps from forming.
– Add the dried thyme, salt, and pepper to the pot, stirring to combine.

4. **Simmer the Beef and Onions:**
– Return the browned beef pieces to the pot, along with any accumulated juices.
– Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat to low and cover. Let the beef and onions simmer gently for about 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the beef is tender and the flavors have melded together.

5. **Cook the Noodles:**
– While the beef and onions are simmering, cook the wide egg noodles according to the package instructions until al dente.
– Drain the noodles and set aside.

6. **Combine Beef, Onions, and Noodles:**
– Once the beef is tender, add the cooked egg noodles to the pot, stirring gently to combine and ensure the noodles are coated with the savory sauce.

7. **Serve and Garnish:**
– Ladle the beef and noodles into serving bowls, ensuring each portion has a generous amount of beef and onions.
– Garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a pop of color and freshness.

Tips and Variations

– For added depth of flavor, you can deglaze the pot with a splash of red wine after sautĂ©ing the onions and garlic.
– Feel free to add vegetables such as carrots, celery, or mushrooms to the pot for added nutrition and texture.
– To make the dish creamy, stir in a splash of heavy cream or sour cream just before serving.
