This is a recipe I came up with after having leftover roast and gravy. I often use meat from leftover roast, but of course, you don't have to. It just makes it a little quicker to put together if you do! So substitute as you feel necessary with whatever beef you have on hand! This could also be made in the crockpot after sauteeing the meat and veggies. Just add the noodles to the crockpot about 30 minutes before the soup is done.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large stockpot over medium high heat, saute the stew meat, onion, celery, green pepper, garlic and carrots in butter for 5 minutes, or until meat is browned on all sides.
  2. Or if using leftover roast, saute until vegetables are tender.
  3. Stir in the bouillon, cabbage, remaining seasonings, beef broth, tomato juice and diced tomatoes.
  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover partially, and simmer for 45 minutes.
  5. Add noodles and simmer for another 20 minutes.
  6. Discard bay leaves before serving.

I just made this for dinner tonight and I want to tell you it is so delicious. I wanted to eat more but. could not fit in anymore. I used left over roast and potatoes since they were soaked in roast juice. JUST AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

This one is a winner. Usually I make soups with barley or potatoes, not usually noodles because they explode in size. I made this with some leftover lasagna noodles all chopped up and no such problem. Instead of bullion+broth/water, I used about a cup and a half of drippings from a roast plus a generous quantity of beef bone stock as well. I also added thyme, used tomato sauce instead of juice and forgot to add the sliced tomatoes, but it was fine. I appreciated being able to use up the lasagna noodles, roast drippings and cabbage. I also left out the green pepper. If I made it again rather than salt I might use worcheshire sauce. Super flavorful, great second meal after a roast.
