This steak pasta soup with broccoli includes tender steak bites along with a delicious, creamy savory broth, egg noodles, and broccoli. Such flavor and so simple to make!
I used London broil for the steak in this recipe. Cut up in small chunks and seared quickly makes tender steak bits perfect for using in soup.
I originally intended for this dish to be a creamy pasta dish … not a soup. However, while making it it turned out “soupy” and quite delicious. So, a delicious steak pasta soup was born!
I believe you’ll love the tender chunks of meat and the creamy broth along with the veggies and egg noodles. A hearty soup that’s very warming and easy to make!
Tips for the Best Steak Pasta Soup
I like to use a fairly lean steak cut like London broil or top round and cut it into bite-sized pieces before cooking. Your stock pot or Dutch oven will be heating up while the steak bites marinate a few minutes in the oil and spices.
I simply sprinkle the oil and spices on the steak bites on a large plate, then toss it all together to incorporate with my hands.
Once the pan is “screaming hot” on medium-high heat, I add the seasoned steak and stir occasionally as it cooks so that all sides brown to sear in the juices. This is what makes the steak tender. You don’t want tough meat in your soup (or anywhere else, for that matter!).
Add all the ingredients at the right time. If you add the broccoli too soon, for example, it will be mushy when served. Ideally, your broccoli will be soft, but not completely falling apart.
Also, if you add the sour cream (or plain yogurt) too soon it may lump up or curdle, making your soup less creamy. Add cream or milk ingredients near the end of cook time … when all boiling or hard simmering is done.
