Gunk on Noodles
My mother came up with this wonderfully simple dish on a snowy Michigan night when all she had on hand was a pound of ground beef. My father and I just loved it, and when Dad asked her what it was called she laughed and said ‘Gunk on Noodles.’ The silly name stuck, and I’ve been making it for my family for 25 years. A quick meal made with items we all have on hand.

Large pot of lightly salted water should be brought to a boil.

Egg noodles should be added to the pot and cooked for 6 to 8 minutes, or until they are al dente.

Cook the ground beef in a sizable skillet over medium-high heat for 10 minutes, or until it is evenly browned.

Add the onion and garlic mixture, and cook until the onion is soft.

Add the tomato paste, mushrooms, sugar, butter, and Worcestershire sauce and combine.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook and stir for an additional five minutes, or until bubbly and thoroughly heated.

Serve the prepared noodles over.
