Expert Tips

Made with chunks of beef instead of ground meat, this stew has a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs texture. You can make it ahead of time (minus the noodles, which may become gummy from sitting in the liquid); the flavors will mingle and become even better refrigerated overnight. At serving time, stir in the cooked noodles and reheat.
