Does anyone know what the best cut of meat would be to use in beef noodle soup?

Chuck and maybe a bone or two, soup bone that is.

I just made it yesterday after seeing this thread. I used a package of chuck and a package of marrow bones. I also added "Better than Bouillon (sp?)" beef flavor because it needed a little extra something. It came out ok...I think that I should have added a small amount of tomato product. Maybe a small can of sauce or a little tomato paste. I was missing a richness and I think that might have been it!

tiamaria,

I always put in canned tomatoes, and sometimes a little tomato sauce, but not always. Did you saute onions, celery and carrots, after sauting your beef, that helps give it flavor?

I usually use a combination of Chuck, and short ribs, I find the short ribs give a lot of flavor.

Now I'm in the mood for some soup! lol

Hi Thingamajig-

Yes I did saute onion, carrots, garlic in oil then browned the meat. I added potatoes, parsnips and a sweet potato as well as parsley. The only thing that I can think of is that it was missing that tomato. Even with my pot roast I find that the tomato is the richness that makes the dish--even if it doesn't taste tomato-ey it is just that subtle hint of flavor. I know what you mean about it putting you in the mood for soup! I read the post the other day and that is how I ended up making it yesterday!

I just re-read the title of this thread, I thought it was for beef vegetable soup, not beef noodle. I've never made beef noodle, but it's probably pretty similar, as far as the base.

Hi tiamaria,

I agree, I always put tomato in my pot roast, too.

I use beef shanks plus extra beef marrow bones, beef stock in the carton, onions, celery, bay leaf, carrots.
