Beef Macaroni Soup
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
Not my favorite, very Bland I don't think I'll make it again
A hearty soup with lots of meat and vegetables. Pros: Fast and easy with good size portions Cons: My husband and I felt it needed a few more spices. I added some garlic powder and onion powder.
my aunt janie used to make this! it brought back a lot of memories. Thanks for sharing!
In place of the diced tomatoes I used 2 cans of Ro-Tel and also in place of the beef broth I used V8 Vegetable juice; ( I don't measure, I just added what I thought would be enough)
So quick and really good for how fast it is. I would double the broth and add salt and parsley. Overall really good in a pinch!
Thanks Debra and reviewers who offered suggestions. i started with the basic recipe but waited to add the tomatoes until the end. I substituted quick barley for the macaroni, used 4 cups of water and 4 beef bouillon cubes instead of the beef broth and added these spices: 1 t. garlic powder, 1 t. onion powder, 1 t. thyme, and 1.5 t. oregano. I will make this again, but may try holding the tomato, adding 1/3 c. lentils, and adding more broth for a beefy flavored soup. What a versatile recipe for fall!I
It was really simple to make. I added and extra can of beef broth and added garlic, smoked paprika, onions and a bay leaf to it. I crumbled a sweet corn muffin in it for a little sweetness. Not bad
Great soup to start with. This is a great basic recipe. Everyone has different tastes so add what makes you happy. I do not add my macaroni to the soup because I do not like mushy macaroni. I cook mine separately and add it to my bowl when I am ready to eat. I also add grated Parmesan or Romano cheese on top. Umm, good! ??
I changed the beef to ground turkey. My 10 year old LOVES this soup!
The broth was thin and the flavors were very faded.
