Remember that Yankee Pot Roast recipe I shared with you the other day? This beef noodle soup is the perfect way to use up the leftover meat – dare I say it’s almost better than the original pot roast? The best part is because you’re using pre-cooked meat this soup is on the table in less than 30 minutes!

How do you make beef noodle soup?

This beef noodle soup is so very simple yet it packs a lot of flavor. The recipe starts with a base of carrots, onions and celery. Add in your leftover pot roast and beef broth and give the whole thing a quick simmer on the stove until the vegetables are tender. The final step is to add the egg noodles. You can really use whatever variety you like, or even regular pasta in a pinch, but I prefer wide pappardelle noodles.

The pot roast makes this soup a hearty meal, but the concept familiar enough that the whole family will enjoy it, even your picky eaters!

I love being able to make one pot roast and use it for two nights worth of dinners, especially when you end up with amazing meals in the end! This beef and egg noodle soup is most definitely comfort food at its finest and will warm you up on even the coldest of days.

    I used 1 lb ground beef, browned at the start.
    I added 1 tblsp minced garlic last minute of sauteing veggies.
    I added 2 tblsp tomato paste at end of sauteing vegetables.
    This was so delicious, Sara! I will make it again.

    A very delicious bowl of soup! I used stew meat that I cut in half or quicker cooking and added the onion and seasoned with the salt and pepper. Added the beef to the vegetables and stock then simmered for about 1/2 hour. Stirred the kluski noodles into the soup and checked the seasonings again adding a bit more salt and pepper. If you are having colder weather like we are definitely make this soup! Made and reviewed for the What’s On The Menu tag game.
