Directions:

  1. In a pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add jerky and onion, and sauté until onion turns translucent – about 5 to 7 minutes. Add unsalted beef stock and Worcestershire sauce, and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer on low for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

  2. Add egg noodles to the pot; noodles should be mostly submerged, and if not, add water. Cover and simmer for about 30 minutes or until noodles become tender and most of the stock has been absorbed, stirring occasionally and gently. Do not allow to scorch.
