Beef Lombardi

On the farm we love BEEF and FOOTBALL!

What better way to celebrate than serving your family Beef Lombardi!  You can’t go wrong with beef and noodles. 🙂

Fun Ag Fact – Did you know that one cow hide will make approximately 20 footballs?!  Since it is actually baseball season, I will add that one hide will make 144 baseballs!  Go Royals!!

 

Ingredients

1 lb. ground beef

1 can chopped tomatoes

1 can diced tomatoes

2 tsp. sugar

2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 can tomato paste

1 bay leaf

1 package egg noodles

6 green onions, chopped

1 cup sour cream

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

To start this recipe we are going to  brown one pound of ground beef on medium heat.  This will take you about 5 minutes, then drain off any fat.  I didn’t have to drain mine, we raise lean beef!  🙂

Then we are going to add in chopped tomatoes, diced tomatoes, sugar, salt and pepper.  Cook this for another 5 minutes.

Add in the tomato paste and bay leaf then simmer for 30 minutes.  You will want to remove the bay leaf now.

Next you will want to cook your egg noodles, drain.  Stir them with the green onions and sour cream until just blended.  Place the noodle mixture in bottom of a lightly greased 13 x 9 baking dish.

Top the noodles with the beef.

I’m not sure if you know this or not but your cheese will melt faster if you buy block cheese and the shred it at home.  I had no clue!  We almost all of our cheeses in the block form because it tastes better, its cheaper and it melts faster.  Here I used a grader and got all this yummy shredded cheese.

Put all that cheese right on top of the beef.  🙂  Beef and cheese, you can’t go wrong!

Bake this, oh so good, dish covered at 350 for 35 minutes.  Take the foil off and bake an additional 5 minutes.

I let this cool a bit before I serve it to the kiddos, doesn’t it look yummy!!!

I paired the Beef Lombardi with some corn on the cob we froze last year off the farm.

Mr. Farmer and the farm kids loved this dish!  I found this recipe in one of my Southern Living cookbooks, I opted out of using the chiles in this recipe.   Our farm table doesn’t see a lot of spicy dishes.  🙂

To freeze this dish prepare as above but DO NOT bake it.  Wrap with foil and freeze up to 1 month.  To reheat, thaw in the refrigerator overnight.  Bake as directed.

Happy Eating,

The Farm Mom

    This looks and sounds delicious. Good pick, neighbor! My favorite cut of beef is probably sirloin. My grandma taught me to use this cut in Beef Stroganoff. I like that it is versatile and can be cooked/served in many different ways.

    Tenderloin. Great texture. But you can’t beat ground beef and cheese!

    • jenniferwright937@gmail.com says:

      Tenderloin is so good! My kids will eat anything if it contains ground beef and cheese!
