Beef Noodle Soup
For Christmas this year, my gift to Dan was getting our gas fireplace fixed. We bought this house with a beautiful fireplace that is the center of the living room.
But it's never worked correctly!
I had it refurbished and serviced and bought him a chair so he can sit by the fireplace, read and relax. It's been magical!
It's perfect for a cold day or a cozy evening and he is so happy with it! Now granted, we don't get too much cold weather here in Fresno, but for those few months we do, it's the nicest treat and a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the fire!
See how I wrapped that right back to this delicious bowl of Beef Vegetable Noodle Soup! Funny how that happens, right?!!!

Beef Vegetable Noodle Soup
Soups and stews are my jam! I love easy meals that I can put together quickly. I love utilizing leftovers and transforming them into a completely new meal. No one wants to be throwing away food, right?
I figure that's pretty much why you're a reader of my blog! This post - Homemade Soup; A Complete Guide shares all of my tips and tricks to make the very BEST meals!
What kind of noodles do you use in Beef Noodle Soup Recipe?
Egg Noodles are the classic favorite for Beef Noodle Soup, but you can really use whatever noodles are your favorite and you have on hand. Some of my favorites are;
- orecchiette - my personal favorite! This little cup-like small pasta that easily fits on a spoon and holds the sauce or broth deliciously!
What kind of beef is used for beef noodle soup?
Leftover roast beef is perfect. You only need two cups of diced beef. Make a little bit larger roast than you typically would and use the leftovers to make this soup!
I've made this soup with leftover from both the prime rib and roast beef recipes above. This soup is incredibly delicious AND if you have time and can make homemade beef stock? That will make it that much better. This soup is AMAZING!
How do you thicken beef and noodles?
I don't thicken this soup, but I know some people prefer a thicker stew. If you prefer a thick soup, add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to 2 tablespoons cold water and whisk until it is completely smooth. Then whisk it into the boiling broth. As it cooks, the soup will thicken.
When thickening with cornstarch, only use cold water. Cornstarch gets lumpy when mixed with warm or hot water.
