This delicious soup was a favorite of mine while attending college. My family has been enjoying it ever since! Very easy and quick to make. It includes stew meat, mixed vegetables and egg noodles in a beef broth base.

Hey Brenda, this was a really good and totally comforting soup! The only major thing I changed was eliminating the water and beef boullion and using low salt beef broth. After browning my beef and vegies I put everything into my crock pot. For those who mentioned that the meat was tough, the slow cooker seemed to be the answer. I always add more seasonings (garlic and onion powder) and I boiled my egg noodles in a separate sauce pan and then added them to the slow cooker at the very end. Hubby Drew and kid Ash (Ty was at dance) went nuts over this! Thanks Brenda for a very quick and satisfying meal! Read More

I have tried many recipes on this site and have had huge success. This recipe was the exception. I made it the way suggested. I then took the meat out to season the meat (adding Worcestershire Sauce)...it STILL did not improve. I DO NOT recommend this one. It's a stinker. Read More

Although I'm a trained professional baker I love making soup and finding a great recipe to use as a jump off is key(I love making soup but I'm still learning!). I made this soup for a girlfriend who was recuperating from surgery and needed something nourshing yet light and very easy to reheat. I played a bit with the recipe by seasoning the meat with seasoned salt pepper celery salt and onion powder before sauteeing(pat the meat dry first)with the onion and celery. I also used 1 can of low salt beef broth in place of 2 cups of the water and I added a can of drained beans(I used large white beans)along wiht the rest of the veggies and noodles. I found that the salt is more controlled and if the soup needs more salt or pepper it can be added at the end of cooking. This soup is so nourshing and she loved it. My boyfriend who was a very picky eater loved it too. You may need to up the liquids so buy 2 cans of low salt beef broth just in case. Read More

This soup is delicious. I sauteed everything up the night before and let it simmer in the crockpot the following day, adding the noodles at the end. I think the egg noodles make this dish. Even the husband liked it. We've put it in the "keeper" pile of recipes. I did up the amount of water - up to 7 cups - that seems to be about right for us. Read More

Although the basic recipe itself was delicious I'm sure I've never been able to not make a recipe my own.Being more of a "stoup" lover I used 1 1/2 C of beef broth and 2 1/2 C of water instead of the 5 3/4 C of water. I added 1/4 cup of flour into the meat mixture before I added liquid for a thicker consistancy. I also added approx a TBSP of onion powder and used Ground Deer Meat instead of stew meat. And finally topped off the finished product with some french fried onions.Served with Grilled cheese. Delicious!:) Read More

This recipe was super easy and great. I did it with a little over a cup of uncooked egg noodles 3 cubes of beef bouillon and at least double the water that the recipe called for. The whole family loved it-there were no leftovers! It tasted like more work went in to it. A keeper! I used regular stew meat and I think I cooked it for an hour to soften it a bit more. Read More

This was wonderful! I've been looking for a beef noodle soup. I used sirloin instead of stew meat and cooked it longer. The steak was tender and the flavor of the soup was outstanding. A keeper for my family. Read More

I also used the beef broth instead of the water and bouillion. I did add additional water and a packet of Liptons beef and mushroom soup mix as my family likes that mushroom taste. I added 3 cloves of chopped garlic to the onion and celery and this soup mix was perfect! Easy Easy. Easy! Will definately fix again! Read More

I just made it again and added green beans and a little tomato powder! Wow! My family and friends just love this soup. It's almost stew like..... This was great!! I had a beef shank for soup in the freezer so I browned that and then put it with all the other ingredients except the noodle in a crock pot. After a few hours I cut up the meat and put it and the noodles back in the crock pot to finish up cooking. The house smelled wonderful but the best was how much my family loved this soup!! I also cheated and used a bag of shredded carrots. Thanks soooo much for this easy and delicious recipe! Read More

Oh yum. It is a whole 14 degrees here in Chicago and this was great. I added the noodles during the last last 10 minutes(a little more than called for) & some peas my husband pretty much ate 1/2 of it! Thanks Brenda! Read More
