This Prime Rib Soup is full of leftover tender chunks of meat floating in a hearty bone broth. It is meat and potatoes in a soup and the perfect way to use those precious leftovers. A Prime Rib being such an expensive cut of meat is reserved for special occasions at our house . As delicious as this meal is the meat just isn’t the same heated up, so instead of wasting it I will make another meal out of it. Never , I repeat NEVER throw away those precious bones. Boil those babies up and make the most delicious broth you have ever had. Even if there is no meat left , save those bones. This Soup is so easy it will soon be a favorite at your house.
I have very picky eaters at my house and one of my sons will not eat leftovers unless it is made into to something else. I would never let leftover rib roast go to waste, it is really a favorite meal we all can agree on . Over the years I have gotten pretty creative when it comes to leftovers like making Omelets or Quesadillas, both my family loves. Like I have mentioned before never let those bones go to waste!! If you know you won’t have time to boil them , put them in a ziplock bag and freeze them. At any given time I have frozen bones in my freezer waiting to be used .
Supplies Needed to Make this Soup:
This is a fairly easy recipe and you probably already have everything you at home.
- Knife-This Rada Chiefs Knife is my favorite everyday knife
- Cutting Board
- Soup Pot-I use this all the time

Hearty and delicious! I’ve been craving meat lately, and this is such a cozy, comforting soup. It’s delicious, and I can’t wait to make it again!
What a great way to re-purpose leftovers! It’s summer here and BBQ season has started and we are terrible at food portions so we always have leftover meat. This is such a good recipe for that!
This meat looks so tender, and nothing beats an authentic bone broth! With Christmas around the corner it could be good to get a nice cut of meat like prime rib, so thank you for this fantastic suggestion on how to use up leftovers!
This Prime Rib soup looks incredibly good. I wish it was in my bowl! Perfect for this cold night
Maggie it is perfect on a cold night.
I am a firm believer in using the last part of any ingredient, and using the bones from prime rib certainly fits in with that. I haven’t put red wine into a soup for a while, it would be perfect here!
I totally agree , I hate to waste and especially anything as delicious as prime rib.

This is a great recipe especially when craving for a cozy wholesome meal.
This This Prime Rib Soup was excellent! It was so flavorful and inviting on a Florida cold night (yes we have them lol) My husband said it was one of the best soups he had eaten in awhile! I will be making this ever Holiday season!
I made an onion soup out of the bone broth but will try this recipe next time.
Can you replace with pork?
This recipe is made with leftover Prime rib and he bones. It really has a unique flavor that only comes from leftover prime rib. You can use the same method with pork but it will not be the same and I can not tell you how it will come out.
The soup looks delicious, I will make it for my family, They will love it!!
Keep me updated!! Enjoy!
