Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 3 cups of water
  • 6 ounces uncooked noodles (I used wide egg noodles)
  • 2 medium-size carrots, sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, sliced
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoons dried pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oil (for pressure cooker)

Instructions

Slow Cooker

  1. Add all ingredients EXCEPT for the noodles into the slow cooker. Stir gently.
  2. Cook HIGH 3-4 or LOW 6-8.
  3. Add preferred noodles and cook on HIGH an additional 15-20 minutes or until noodles are soft.
  4. Remove bay leaf before serving.

Electric Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot)

  1. Turn on the Instant Pot and select sauté. Once hot add oil to the pot & beef. Cook until beef is browned, approximately 2-3 minutes. Remove beef and set aside.
  2. Add celery, carrots, and cook for a 5-7 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Add garlic and cook an additional minute.
  3. Add the broth and water. If needed, use a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pressure cooker to remove any bits that stuck to it. Make sure you scrape it well to avoid burning during cooking.
  4. Stir beef back into the pressure cooker along with all the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the uncooked pasta.
  5. Close lid and seal valve. Set high pressure and cook for 20 minutes.
  6. Natural release pressure for 5 minutes then manually the remaining pressure.
  7. Stir in uncooked pasta. You can either turn off pressure cooker, close the lid, and let it sit for  5-10 minutes or you can turn the pressure cooker to warm (or low saute) and let it cook with the lid off.
  8. Remove bay leaf before serving.
