Pork noodle soup, either made with thin egg noodles or small pasta shapes, is such an easy and hearty soup to make. Kids love it! Adults love it! You'll love it! What makes this soup so perfect is that you decide what to put into it. Make it with what your family loves. Make it with what's in your fridge.
PS: Want to see how I make soups? Take a quick look at my book ... and
What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...
Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)
The following recipe is one I make when I want to have a HUGE pot of soup, either for a party or for a busy, busy week when I need to have quick suppers and lunches available. Thankfully, my hubby doesn't mind left-overs. In fact, he'll often ask if there's any more after the pot is empty.
Oma's 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 ribs
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
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 7½ quarts of soup (30 cups)
If you don't have Maggi, Vegeta, and/or Montreal Steak Spice, use whatever spices are your favorites.
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!
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
