- 2 pounds stew beef
- 1 (1 oz) packet ranch seasoning
- 1 (0.87 oz/25g) envelope brown gravy mix
- 1 (10.5 oz/284ml) can cream of mushroom soup
- 3 cups water
- 1 pound egg noodles, uncooked
- Start by searing your stew beef in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat until it’s nicely browned on all sides.
- In a separate mixing bowl, combine the ranch seasoning, brown gravy mix, cream of mushroom soup, and water. Stir until you have a smooth and creamy gravy mixture.
- Pour the gravy mixture over the seared stew beef in your skillet or Dutch oven.
- Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about 1.5 to 2 hours, or until the beef becomes tender and the flavors meld together beautifully. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
- While the stew is simmering, prepare your egg noodles according to the package instructions. Cook them until they’re tender but still slightly firm, as they will continue cooking once combined with the stew.
- Once the beef is tender and the stew has reached your desired consistency, it’s time to serve. Spoon generous portions of the ranch beef stew over a bed of the cooked egg noodles.
- Garnish with a touch of fresh parsley for a pop of color and flavor, and serve piping hot to your eager diners.
