This beef noodle soup made with leftover pot roast is just as soul-satisfying as a classic chicken noodle soup but without the chicken.
Chicken noodle soup is obviously a classic and “good for the soul”. So what is beef noodle soup good for? The heart? Muscles? Mind? I could not think of anything catchy so I’ll let you decide that.
In general when I have some leftover pot roast I make a beef vegetable soup. But I just wasn’t feeling like vegetable soup the other day – I wanted a noodle soup instead. This recipe for beef noodle soup is pretty much like a standard chicken noodle soup but I added some petite diced tomatoes to the broth in addition to the chopped onion, carrots and celery.
Beef broth from a can (or box) tastes kind of “off” to me. It is a personal preference (as with any recipe) but I decided to use chicken broth plus one can of beef consomme´ for the liquid in my beef noodle soup recipe. If you happen to have a homemade beef stock on-hand then that would be an even better addition.
