Amish Style Beef and Noodles
For a lot of people, Amish style cooking conjures up warm kitchens, fresh home grown ingredients, slow cooked dinners, fresh baked pastry, and good old fashioned kitchen cooking. These Amish Style Beef and Noodles are a tribute to that style cooking. Amish diets are not necessarily low fat, but really epitomize cooking and eating fresh.
Amish Style Beef and Noodles. As a long time Ohio resident, one of my favorite destinations is the Amish country in and around Charm, Ohio. Beautiful rolling hills,well kept farms, nostalgic little shops and restaurants with great home made food. One of our families favorite spots was the Chalet in the Valley restaurant in Millersburg, Ohio. The food was great, and after dinner you could walk across the street to visit the cheese shop. There you could great cheeses, meats, clocks, and other home made Amish delights. On one visit for lunch the special was a family style beef and noodles that was absolutely wonderful and I remember it fondly. So here’s my take on a great dinner that’s easy to prepare and sure to delight.
Of course a trip across the street to the cheese factory for some of the beautiful baby swiss made right there resulted in the purchase of one of the little hand crafted clocks adorning the walls. They vary in size and expense and this was the only one I could get out of there with and not incur the wrath of the spouse. Still decorating the wall in my house with the little Amish girl happily bouncing up and down on her swing. If you do happen to make it to the cheese factory, plan to spend some time poking around. A good time to visit is mid spring when everything is green, the cows are out, and the vistas are just fantastic.
If you do happen to find yourself in the area, check things out. All kinds of shops to go through featuring items from a somewhat forgotten era. Keep in mind that this is Amish territory and finding yourself behind a buggy is not uncommon. Just enjoy the scenery.
Looking for Mrs. Millers Noodles ? They can be a bit hard to find but I prefer them when I don’t make my own. They work great in a number of soups also. Amazon carry’s them in case your local retailer doesn’t. You can get them here!
