Homemade Egg Noodles

These egg noodles are another one of my grandma’s recipes – they were one of my mom’s favorite foods growing up, so they are a common fixture in my house around her birthday.

This recipe will make enough for about six to eight people, depending on appetite levels.


(All units are American customary.)

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 pound of beef short ribs


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Large pot
  • Noodle-slicing machine


First, you have to make the raw noodles:

  • Mix all ingredients thoroughly (except short ribs) in the mixing bowl.
  • Spread the dough and flatten it into a sheet, as thin as you can get it.
  • Use the noodle-slicing machine to cut the dough into individual noodles. (Or, just cut it with a knife.)
  • Allow the noodles to dry for 8 to 10 hours. They’ll look like this:

Then, to actually cook them:

  • Place the beef short ribs in the pot.
  • Cover the short ribs with water, and cook for one hour.
  • Add the noodles, and cook for an additional 45-60 minutes.
  • Serve! (They usually need salt.)
