“Beefy” Noodles

Been slacking lately, figured since I have some free time on my hands I need to update the site. Been doing a lot of cooking and visiting a few new restaurants since the last update.

I have another one of my go-to meals here. My “Beefy Noodles.” This is a favorite of me and my girlfriend. Quick and easy, first thing to note is I use ground turkey instead of beef. “Beefy noodles” just kind of stuck so that what we call it now (Kanye shrug). Ground turkey, egg noodles and mirepoix. Sometimes I add peas depending on my mood. I season the ground turkey with cayenne pepper, paprika, salt, pepper and garlic powder.

To add even more flavor, I added a cup of chicken stock, and a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Let the ground turkey simmer on low heat; Then all that’s left is to drain, combine the noodles, meat and gravy. You can use the jar kind, packet or make it from scratch. I use the jar because this is a quick meal for work. No real fuss involved. Simmer again on low for a few minutes to let the flavors marry and stuck to the noodles.

Enjoy this quick and easy weeknight dinner for the family or a quick lunch to take to work.
