When I made these, I also made a quick and easy dinner…

◦2 cups beef broth
◦1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
◦2 Tbsp butter

3.Simmer 12-14 mins until macaroni is tender.
4.While the hamburger mixture simmers, melt the 2 Tbsp butter in a saucepan.
Whisk in the flour
and cook 2 minutes until fragrant and light brown in color.
5.Slowly whisk in the milk and bring to a boil. Cook while whisking until smooth and thickened to the consistency of gravy.
