Tips & Notes

  • Storage: Store soup in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to 5 days.
  • Reheating: The soup will thicken in the fridge, so add a little more beef broth before, heating back up, and serving.
  • Freezer Directions: Let soup cool completely before transferring into a freezer-safe gallon-size bag. Seal bag tightly and then freeze for up to 3 months.
