Beef Noodle Soup with Prime Rib

We love Beef Noodle Soup, and when you make it with prime rib it takes this hearty, warming, classic soup to a whole ‘nother level! This is one of my favorite parts about making rib roasts at home, and I always make sure to buy and extra big roast so we have plenty for leftovers!

This soup is next-level ridiculous. If I had a restaurant, it would definitely be on the menu. The good part is that you don’t even need to spring for prime-grade rib roasts to make fantastic leftovers. We’ve had success with choice and even select grades with this recipe.

Making a rib roast at home isn’t a regular thing around here, but we do a Smoked Prime Rib every year for Christmas, and usually make an excuse to do another one at least once during the year. A big part of the reason is so I can make this soup and things like our Steak and Potato Pie, Steak Chili, Beef and Mushroom Biscuit Pockets, or our Prime Rib Pinwheel Sandwich.

Beef Noodle Soup FAQ

What’s the best way to store leftovers?

These leftovers are best stored in the fridge for 3-4 days, max. You can also freeze this soup for a few months with great results. The homestyle or homemade egg noodles are perfect and tend to hold up well to reheating, unlike the dried egg noodles or other types of pasta that sometimes gets used in beef noodle soup.

How should you reheat beef noodle soup?

We use the microwave for noodle soups, but the stovetop works well too if you are without a microwave.

Are there any substitutions for the prime rib?

You can use any type of leftover beef for this recipe, or even raw stew meat or a cubed up chuck roast would work really well!

Beef Noodle Soup with Prime Rib

This hearty beef noodle soup features one of the best cuts of beef, prime rib! Use up your holiday leftovers in one of the best ways.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes


  • 1/2 stick salted butter
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 2 cups diced carrots
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 2 quarts homemade beef broth
  • 4 cups chopped prime rib
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 batch homemade egg noodles (or one bag of frozen "homestyle" egg noodles)


  1. Place the butter into a large Dutch oven over medium heat, and let melt.
  2. Add in the celery, carrots, and onion. Let cook for 5-6 minutes, until softened and starting to brown.
  3. Add in the garlic and stir for 30 seconds.
  4. Add in the beef broth, prime rib, red wine, and thyme.
  5. Simmer over medium heat until the prime rib is fork tender. Add in the noodles and cook until al dente.
  6. Serve with crusty bread and green salad.


If you have a bone-in prime rib roast, you can use the bones to make the broth. Just simmer in a pot of water for a minimum of 3-4 hours. Drain through cheesecloth. I like to let it sit in the fridge overnight, and then skim off the solidified fat and use that to make a roux.
