Pork Noodle Soup
- 4 lb pork (I used boneless pork chops)
- Oil for browning
- 2 onions, chopped
- 4-6 carrots, scraped or peeled, large chunks
- 4-6 celery roibs
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 small head cauliflower
- 1 bunch broccoli
- I red pepper
- about 3 quarts water
- about 250 gm (2 cups) uncooked thin egg noodles
- salt, pepper, parsley, Maggi*, Montreal Steak Spice, Vegeta*
- Cut pork into bite-sized pieces.
- Pour a bit of oil into large soup pot.
- Over high heat, brown pork in batches. Add chopped onions and return all meat to pot. Cover with water and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, prepare all veggies, cutting into bite-sized pieces.
- Add veggies to soup pot, add water until most of veggies are covered. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 15 minutes or until veggies are tender.
- Add egg noodles and continue to simmer for about 5 minutes or until tender.
- Season with about 2 tsp. salt, freshly ground pepper, 1 tbsp Montreal Steak Spice, 2 - 3 tbsp Maggie, 1 tbsp Vegeta, and lots of parsley.
- Change the veggies to what you have available.
- Seasonings are to your taste. Start with a bit and add more as desired.
- The Montreal Steak Spice is definitely NOT a German addition. But hubby and I love the extra 'kick' it gives. Omit it if you want a more traditional German taste.
- Makes about 7 1/2 quarts of soup (30 cups)
I love to make huge potfuls of soup. Even though, it's just my hubby and I, I make this just for us. That way, I've got soup to last the week, for either supper or lunch AND lots to freeze.
As much as I love to cook, I really don't like spending much time doing it. Thankfully, hubby loves leftovers, especially when they taste this great. As we come towards the end of the pot, he's been known to ask for more!
This method works well with beef or chicken as well. It really is easy to make.
For the starch, you could substitute potatoes, rice, or even some ground flax seeds (if you're on a low-carb diet).
I love the versatility of homemade soups. It really is a bit of this and a bit of that. It's the kind of cooking that I love!
