  • ½ cup of BBQ sauce (add more to taste)

Beef & Noodles
This is a Rupp family favorite!

  • 1 can (28 oz.) R Farm canned beef
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 bag (14 oz.) egg noodles, cooked
  • ½ lb. Velveeta cheese
  • 1 can of cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup
  • ½ cup of milk
  • Chopped onion (optional)

Stir ingredients together in a saucepan and simmer on low for 15-20 minutes, stirring frequently so cheese does not stick or burn. Add salt and pepper to taste. This recipe is also great in the crockpot. Stir ingredients together and cook on low for 2-3 hours.


Beef, Noodle & Vegetable Soup
Tastes like it simmered all day, but it only takes 25 minutes! Recipe courtesy of Mary Scranton, Ney, Ohio.

  • 1 can (28 oz.) R Farm canned beef
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 envelope of onion soup mix
  • 1 envelope of vegetable soup mix
  • ¼ teaspoon minced garlic or garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon celery salt or ½ cup sliced celery
  • 2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables (optional)
  • 1.5 cups of V-8 juice
  • 8 oz. package of your choice of noodles
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Place everything except the V-8 juice and noodles in a covered, 6-quart kettle and bring to a boil. Add the noodles and reduce heat to a simmer until noodles are tender (approximately 20 minutes). Add V-8 juice, stir and serve. This is a thick soup that pairs well with crackers or crusty bread. It can also be served over mashed potatoes. If you prefer a thinner soup, add more beef broth. Makes 6-8 servings.


Doug’s Top Grilling Tips

  • Beef is best when cooked low and slow, helping to keep it juicy and tender
  • Don’t be afraid to season your steaks prior to grilling. Salt, pepper and your favorite herbs can really enhance the flavor.
  • Let the grill do the work. Flip your burger or steak only once during grilling.
  • Have fun! Enjoy the process as well as the product.
