Beef and Noodle Soup


Anyone else feeling like they need a light meal? While the holidays aren't quite over, today I was craving some veggies (something to balance out the cheese and desserts...). We had some leftover prime rib in the fridge and I knew that would add wonderful flavor to soup (any beef will do - pot roast, beef tenderloin, etc.). 

Serve this with salad and crusty bread. Yum!



1. Melt butter and olive oil in a large Dutch oven or saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Season lightly with salt and pepper.



2. Add beef broth, tomato sauce, fire-roasted tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce, bay leaves and beef. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until the veggies have softened.

3. Add noodles and bring to a boil. Cook until the noodles are tender, about 10 minutes.

4. Remove bay leaves. Stir in parsley and thyme and serve.
