Ingredients needed

This beef noodle soup recipe is made with wholesome, simple ingredients that cook together for an amazing meal! Here’s a note on everything needed:

  • Beef roast: You’ll need 2 pounds of beef or chuck roast that is cut into 1-inch cubes. If you prefer using beef stew meat you can. Beef Shanks work too.

  • Olive oil: To sear the beef and sauté the vegetables.
  • Garlic & onion: Adds the most delicious savory flavor and aromatics!
  • Mushrooms: Sliced button mushrooms add heartiness and a lovely earthy taste.
  • Carrots: For the best flavor, use large carrots and not baby carrots.
  • Celery: Chopped celery gives this soup extra texture.
  • Balsamic vinegar: Adds complex flavor.
  • Beef broth: Provides flavor and the perfect consistency.
  • Egg noodles: These are perfectly wide and thick to soak up the tasty broth.
  • Fresh parsley: To finish the soup with color and freshness.

How to make beef Noodle Soup

  1. Season the beef: Season the beef cubes with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and cayenne pepper.
  2. Sear the meat: Heat the oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Working in 2 batches, sear the beef until golden on all sides. Set aside on a plate and cover to keep warm.
  1. Sauté the veggies: In the same preheated pot, sauté the garlic and mushrooms for 5 minutes, stir in the onion, carrots, and celery, and continue to sauté for 5 more minutes.
  2. Simmer: Return the beef to the pot. Add the balsamic and beef broth and bring the soup to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the beef is very tender.
  3. Cook the noodles: Add the noodles and cook for 6-8 minutes, then remove from heat. The noodles will continue to cook and absorb liquid so it’s best to under cook them for a bit.
  4. Serve: Allow the soup to sit until warm, then ladle into bowls and garnish with parsley, if desired.

Expert tips

Here’s some options for using different ingredients in your soup and ideas for serving:

  • To save time: If you really want to decrease the hands-on time needed to make this, consider buying pre-chopped veggies, either in the produce department or frozen foods section of your grocery store.
  • Noodles: Egg noodles are traditional in beef soup, however you can change this up and use tortellini, bowtie pasta, small shell pasta, or elbow noodles.
  • Vegetables: To add even more veggie goodness, mix in other veggies like baby spinach leaves, green beans, peas, zucchini, corn, or even potatoes. Just remember that different veggies will have different cook times.
  • To serve: We love to complete this meal with crackers or crusty bread for soaking up all of the delicious broth!
  • Meats: You may use a variety of meats but we recommend going for tender cuts of beef.
