At least once a week my husband asks me if I can make him a roast beef dinner. It’s one of his favorites and technically a summer easy meal for me to whip up. I don’t give in to his weekly requests, but I do tend to make a roast dinner about once a month during the fall and winter months.

Can I Freeze Pot Roast Soup
I know this question is coming, so let me jump ahead of the game.
Yes! You can totally freeze pot roast soup to make for simple and easy dinners and lunches for the future.
How to Store Leftover Pot Roast
I recommend using glass storage containers so the tomato-based broth doesn’t leach or stain. I use these glass storage containers and they’re fantastic.
What can I do with leftover pot roast?
I tend to cook large roasts so we can have leftovers. I like to utilize the meat to make a few different meals, whether it’s to freeze or eat later in the week.
Leftover Pot Roast Recipes
Aside from this pot roast soup, here are some leftover roast beef dinner ideas:
- Instant Pot French Dip (you can also toss this in the slow cooker)
- Slow cooker beef stew with red wine
- CrockPot Classic Beef Stew
- Shepherd’s Pie (or technically cottage pie since it doesn’t have lamb).
- Leftover Pot Roast Stew. You can make pot roast stew instead of soup by thicking it up by tossing the meat in flour.
As you can see you can use most cuts of beef. I usually use sirloin (or whatever is the least expensive) but you can also make this soup with leftover chuck roast.
How to Make Pot Roast Soup
I wanted to add a note on the beef broth listed in the recipe.
Depending on what you buy, each variation will taste different.
I personally use Better Than Beef Boullion (it’s a beef base) for this pot roast soup recipe and I more than use the recommended serving. Just taste it and adjust the seasonings to make it work for your family.
This is also super simple to make in the CrockPot, Instant Pot, or Ninja Foodi. (my new favorite appliance). To make this time effective you can totally just throw everything in the appliance (like the slow cooker), turn it on using your appliances instructions, and walk away.
