Noodle Mixup (1933) ★★★★

For a 1933 recipe, this meal seems quite modern.

Original Recipe:
1 small onion, chopped
2 tbsp. fat
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 c. canned tomatoes
1 c. water
3 c. cooked egg noodles
1 c. canned kidney beans, well-rinsed and drained
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. salt

Fry onion in fat until brown; add meat, tomatoes, and water and cook slowly until meat is done, about 25 minutes. Add egg noodles, beans, and seasoning. Heat thoroughly and serve.

The Verdict:
Although this meal was a little plain, it wasn't bad. Mr. Man and I both enjoyed it. It was very meaty though, with a whole pound of beef. A little less might have been nice. It also could have benefited from some garlic fried with the onion and we added cheese on top for some extra flavour. I would probably make this again.

The original recipe is easy enough to follow.
