Today Show: Martha Stewart
Lifestyle guru Martha Stewart, author of the new cookbook One Pot, visited Today Show with simple dinner ideas, like Beef Stew with Noodles. Also try her recipes for Skillet Macaroni and Cheese, Bacon and Cabbage Pork Chops, and Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup.
Martha worked with Matt Lauer on this beef stew, which he said reminded him of Beefaroni, a comparison I don’t think Martha cared for.
Today Show: Martha Stewart Beef Stew with Noodles Recipe Ingredients
Martha said that you can make an entire beef stew in a single pot, in just about half an hour. Potatoes and carrots go in toward the end so they don’t become mushy. “The noodles cook right in the gravy," Stewart said.
