What Makes This Recipe So Good

  • It’s surprisingly easy to make! Simply brown the beef, cook the veggies, then leave the broth to simmer for an hour. Finish the soup off with some egg noodles and enjoy!
  • This noodle soup makes cooking beef a breeze! Start by browning it for only a few minutes, then leave it to cook in the broth until irresistibly tender. This method for perfectly cooked beef is totally foolproof!
  • It’s wholesome and hearty, yet light and fresh! Plenty of fresh herbs brighten up this indulgent soup. It strikes that perfect balance between light and satisfying.

Key Ingredients

Beef Stew Meat – Beef stew meat is simply chuck meat that’s cut into cubes for cooking. You should be able to find a one pound package of beef stew meat in the beef section of your local grocery store or butcher shop. However, if you can’t find pre-cut stew meat, simply purchase one pound of chuck roast and chop it into 2-inch cubes yourself.

Egg Noodles – I used extra wide dried egg noodles in my beef noodle soup, though any type of egg noodle will work in this recipe! If using fresh egg noodles, simply adjust the cook time until they’re tender. Also, if you’d like, you can use your favorite pasta shape in place of the egg noodles in this recipe. Again, whichever pasta you choose, switch up the cook time accordingly!

Chef’s Tips

  • Store any leftover beef noodle soup in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days! To reheat, simply place in a large pot over medium-low heat until warm throughout. If prepping this soup a day or two in advance, I recommend leaving the noodles out until just before serving!
  • Feel free to amp up the flavors in this dish however you’d like! I find it totally perfect as is, though a touch of tomato paste or even Worcestershire sauce would taste incredible. You can even finish this soup off with a sprinkling of fresh chopped parsley for a tasty touch!
  • If you have a large dutch oven, use it! The dutch oven does an incredible job at circulating heat and simmering this beef noodle soup to perfection. It’s also great for holding heat, keeping your dinner hot on the stove while everyone serves themselves!
