Oma's Pork Noodle Soup

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

German Pork Noodle Soup!

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.

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 even after the pot is empty.

I really like 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!

Oma says,

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!

Pork noodle soup, either made with thin egg noodles or small pasta shapes, is such an easy and hearty soup to make. 

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.

Prep Time

20 minutes

Cook Time

60 minutes

Total Time

80 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

  1. Cut pork into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Pour a bit of oil into large soup pot. 
  3. 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.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare all veggies, cutting into bite-sized pieces.
  5. 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.
  6. Add egg noodles and continue to simmer for about 5 minutes or until tender.
  7. 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.

Notes/Hints:

  • 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.
