Chunky Beef Noodle Soup

This hearty beef noodle soup, a meal in itself served with warm rolls, became a staple in our diet because it requires ingredients I could easily find. —Lil Morris, Emerald Park, Saskatchewan

    Loved this for a rainy, chilly evening meal. I added sliced carrots and celery as well as some leftover sweet corn. Will definitely keep this in the rotation!

    Great recipe as is, or to build on. I added a little more steak and 1/2 lb of sweet Italian sausage to make the boys in my family happy. The seasoning in the sausage combined nicely with the recipe's seasoning. I also added some diced carrot for color (in the 1 1/2 hours of simmering, which is when I added the green pepper). It would work well with other vegetables, and/or a bit of sour cream. It's delicious-- even better the next day! It's good to have a 5-star steak soup recipe as an alternative to seafood, chicken, or hamburger soups.

    I have made this soup for years. I do not recall where I first found it, but was not a Taste of Home publication. It is not only my husbands favorite soup, but also has been a hit with countless others to whom I have served it. The only variation is I eliminated the green pepper. Though I use peppers freqently we do not care for them with this soup. Otherwise, this dish is hearty and delicious, and in my regular rotation of soups served.

    This was a delicious soup. My husband absolutely loved it. I added some mixed vegetables and a can of beef broth so it wasn'tto thick. I will definitely make this again and keep this as one of my favorite soups.

    This is one of the soups my husband often asks me to make. It is one of his favourites. I pick up marinating steaks when on sale and make this very cheaply.

    Very much enjoyed this flavorful soup. Next time, I think I'll omit the teaspoon of salt to bring the sodium content down a bit.
