For my Daughter...

My daughter will be a new Mum in 2012. She has asked me (or rather suggested) that I add my many 'family meals' to my blog, so that she can make them for her mate.  So, I shall, over the course of the next few months add several 'family secret' meals, here on my blog.  My own Mum taught me these meals. Some I have altered. Others I've created. Feel free to add your versions or questions in the comment section. As I do enjoy reading all comments left, and I shall answer all questions in a timely manner.
Happy Cooking...

Using ONE pound of 96% fat free ground beef, brown over high temp until brown.  Add to taste: salt, pepper, and a dash of the following: Soy Sauce, A-1 sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and season salt. Reduce heat to medium once meat is browned.
In sauce pan bring to boil enough water to cook 3/4 package of egg nooodles (more is cooking whole bag).
In one cup measuring cup add 1/2 cup flour, salt & pepper (yes MORE in addition to the browned meat) 
Slowly add COLD water to cup, stirring with fork till water/flour mixture reaches one cup mark.
Should be similar to the consistency of pancake mix.
Slowly add flour mixture to warming meat, make sure to STIR it constantly!
If mixture is too thick...
add small amounts of water GRADUALLY, so you don't thin it too much, making it runny.
continue stirring,
 You want a GRAVY like consistency.
This process may take a few minutes to achieve gravy status.

once meat and gravy are at a good thickness....
Cover and simmer on LOW temp of five minutes. Turn off burner and allow to sit for another five minutes.
Serve over hot noodles. Add tomatoes or as my daughter like to, a wee bit of ketchup. Enjoy!
