Egg Noodles and Beef Shanks

2 or 3 Creamery Creek cross cut beef shanks
Salt and pepper
1 onion, cut up
1 small carrot, diced
1 stalk of celery, cut up
1 bag of egg noodles.

Cover the cross cut beef shanks with water in a Dutch oven or slow cooker.  Seson with salt and pepper, add onion, carrot and celery. Simmer until meat falls from the bone.  Remove meat.

Bring cooking liquid to a boil; drop in egg noodles.  Bring to a boil again, reduce heat, cover tightly.  Simmer for 30 minutes or until needles have absorbed broth.

Cook meat into bite-sized pieces, discarding fat and gristle; add to noodles toward end of cooking period.


We just love how simple this recipe is - it is full of flavor and checks the easy boxes.  Optional add ins:  a chunk of cream cheese.  Try it and tell me how it goes for you!
