Critchell House Prime Rib Soup

Recipe by Diana 2
READY IN: 2hrs 15mins




  • In a medium saucepan, bring to a boil, water, beef bones, barley, carrots and garlic. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1-1/2 hours.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Remove bones, meat and carrots. (you won't find the garlic :) ) Shred the meat and return to the broth mixture. Discard the carrots, bones and any fat.
  • Refrigerate the broth to allow any remaining fat to harden. This makes it easier to remove. At this point, you can either continue on with the recipe, or the broth may be refrigerated for up to 3 days. You could probably freeze it as well, but I never have.
  • Once the fat has been removed, return the broth to the stove and heat to boiling.
  • Add in the salt, pepper, Bovril, potatoes and onion. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for approx 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add noodles and vegetables. Continue to simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the noodles are tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Enjoy!
