Thank you so much! So glad you, your husband and your guests enjoyed the recipe! Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Your addition of cheese though — yum!
Congratulations Sir, you just broke my dinner block. Tuna Mornay is popular — or, was popular — here in Australia. This beef version looks to be worth a try. I find it difficult to articulate why — beyond the obvious — American classics are such genius recipes. Why does crab in a brown paper bag make so mcuh sense to me?? And a prawn cocktail. Why is that so quinissentially American? Fried Chicken!!! Does this go as well with Tabasco as I imagine it will? It was made with noodles instead of macaroni, but everything else was included.
He makes it cuz he says my dislike of it comes through in the outcome! I have a recipe similar to this that my mother got from my preschool some 28 odd years ago…everyone i make this for loves it. One of my childhood favs, but our Arizona version was called goulash and used egg noodles, green chiles and corn. Yes, piling a monstrous amount of cheddar and mozzarella on top is brilliant!
This is the kind of dish I have to be careful not to make too often, as I will eat and eat and eat…until the entire pan is gone!
Cheesy Beef & Macaroni Casserole
Making it tonight. For the herbs I decided to chop some garlic, some dried oregano, from my own garden paprika, shallot salt kills two birds with one stone, so to speak. I threw in three of them. It should be just the right amount because I made an entire box of macaroni. Thanks for this great recipe! Love your blog…I have this brewing right now for dinner tomorrow…have not had it in years.. Well, it came out really well.
My fresh, but dried oregano really jazzed it up and I truly think shallot salt is one of the great inventions. I get mine from penzys and it has a really nice aroma, and tastes really good in the food. We had plenty left over for lunch for the next couple of days. But simple nice and I like everyone else love the idea of some left overs for a lunch or two. Love them with cheddar. These are the kinds of recipes that I use over and over again. Thank you for this. I am half way through your Ratios book. I get paid soon and will go buy a scale.
It was delicious. Is that for tonight? In my house, this is called Sloppy Joe Casserole, and it always contains minced garlic, chopped green pepper, oregano, and a couple of TBS of tomato paste. Sometimes I use macaroni, but my fav is egg noodles. Otherwise, pretty much the same. My all-time favorite comfort food! Made this tonight with a few variations. First of all I tried to half the recipe, but then forgot and put the whole, big, can of tomatoes in with half the beef and pasta.
Turned out great for me and if I halved the tomato I think it would be too dry.
I also stirred in a bit of the cheese with the beef and mac. Just a little bit of gooeyness to put in the middle. This will be made many more times in this house. I made this for dinner two nights ago and have been eating the left overs ever since! Amazingly delicious. Question: What is the virtue of simmering the beef, tomato, onion mixture for a full hour? I was hungry and it was getting late, so I cooked it on medium for about 15 minutes before mixing in the pasta and it seemed to come out just fine. If I play with your recipe, it might make the best of both favorites for him.
I made something that was supposed to be like this, but had to improvise a lot. Used small shell noodles instead of macaroni. Added some ground beef that had been cooked a couple days earlier, along with the liquid from the green beans. Along with other things. I improvise a lot. I requested this for many a birthday dinners. I still crave it! Thanks for reminding me of this lost love. Welcome to Ruhlman. Mid-week Macaroni and Beef with Cheese, photo by Donna.
