Beef Noodle Skillet is just what it sounds like... a one dish meal of beef and noodles..
I love making skillet meals... one pot.. all the ingredients everyone likes... who could ask for more.... oh.. and they cook in under 30 minutes.
I keep certain staples in the house... like powdered gravies... and noodles.. I always have noodles in the house.. they can be used in so many quick meals... I never "have nothing for dinner".
Powdered gravies are not the best.. but in a pinch they are perfect for skillet meals. I usually have the basic ones on hand as well as Onion Gravy.. it adds flavor to a lot of dishes.. this one included.
If you don't want to use a powdered gravy.. you can substitute a jarred gravy or even better homemade... when you make homemade gravy.. make a bit more than you need and freeze the leftovers for a meal like this.
I use fresh mushrooms.. you can use canned or jarred.. or if you don't care for them.. leave them out.
This recipe will make 4 servings. i serve a steamed vegetable like broccoli on the side.
