Leftover Corned Beef Soup (Video) – Kalyn’s Kitchen

13 mins read

You can make this delicious Leftover Corned Beef Soup in the Instant Pot or on the Stove, and this soup is really low in carbs. And just make corned beef soup with thick-sliced corned beef from the deli when you don’t have any leftover corned beef!

PIN the Corned Beef Soup to try it later!

I know you don’t have leftover corned beef quite yet, but St. Patrick’s Day is almost here, and all the corned beef fans (like me!) will be cooking Instant Pot Corned Beef or Slow Cooker Corned Beef for a special dinner. So I’m reminding you about this amazing Leftover Corned Beef Soup; this is one of my favorite things to make with leftover corned beef!

Or just buy some corned beef from the deli to make this soup; that will also be amazing! And when made this recently to take better photos, Kara and I decided to create a version for the Instant Pot, so now you have two methods to choose from for this tasty soup.

We loved this soup with some coarsely grated Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top, and grated Swiss cheese would also be good if you want Reuben sandwich flavor notes, but the soup is dairy-free if you skip the cheese. I also recommend serving it with your best balsamic vinegar in case people want to drizzle a little more on at the table. I hope you enjoy trying this soup if you’re a corned beef fan!

What ingredients do you need?

How did we change Corned Beef Soup for the Instant Pot version?

For the Instant Pot version we used less sauerkraut and more corned beef to make a soup that’s lower in carbs, and I’m changing those amounts for the stovetop version as well. Kara is not a big corned beef fan, but she pronounced this soup to be “very good” when we tested it. And for the Instant Pot version everything goes in at once and it only needs 5 minutes under pressure, which makes that a quick and really easy recipe.

What Balsamic Vinegar did I use for corned beef soup?

You can make this soup with any balsamic vinegar you buy at the grocery store and it will be just fine. But if you really want to boost the flavor (without buying a super pricey bottle of balsamic vinegar at an import store) I’ve been thrilled with this Colavita Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena (affiliate link) that I buy at Amazon.com. It’s sweeter and thicker than regular balsamic vinegar, and you only need a tiny amount when you use it, so the bottle will last a long time!

How low in carbs is the corned beef soup?

This amazing soup to make with leftover corned beef or deli corned beef has only 4 net carbs per serving!

How to Make Leftover Corned Beef Soup:

(This is only a summary of the steps for the recipe; please scroll down for complete printable recipe. Or if you use the JUMP TO RECIPE link at the top of the page, it will take you directly to the complete recipe.)

  1. Drain sauerkraut in a colander placed in the sink. (If your sauerkraut doesn’t seem that chopped up, I used kitchen shears to chop it up a bit more.)
  2. Cut up the corned beef into medium-sized cubes (or smaller if you prefer.)
  3. Set Instant Pot to SAUTE, MEDIUM HEAT. Heat the olive oil, then add onion and cook 4-5 minutes; add minced garlic and cook 2-3 minutes more.
  4. Then add chicken stock, beef stock, dried thyme, diced tomatoes, drained sauerkraut, diced corned beef, Worcestershire Sauce, bay leaves, and chopped parsley.
  5. Set Instant Pot to MANUAL, HIGH PRESSURE, 5 minutes.
  6. When the cooking time is up, let the Instant Pot NATURAL RELEASE for 10 minutes; then release the rest of the pressure.
  7. Stir in balsamic vinegar and Monkfruit sweetener, season with fresh ground black pepper and serve hot.
  8. We ate it with coarsely-grated Parmesan Cheese sprinkled on top and a drizzle of  extra balsamic vinegar.
  9. This soup would be delicious with my Brown Irish Brown Bread to dip into the soup if you don’t mind the extra carbs!
  10. Scroll down to complete recipe to see the stovetop instructions.

Stovetop Instructions:

  1. You will need about one cup more beef broth to make this on the stove.

  12. After 15 minutes, stir in 1 T balsamic vinegar and season to taste with fresh ground black pepper. 
  13. Serve hot, sprinkled with coarsely-grated Parmesan or Swiss cheese and an extra drizzle of balsamic vinegar if desired.

Notes

If you have homemade chicken stock or homemade beef stock, that would be amazing in this soup! I used flat-leaf parsley but either kind will be fine. I love Monkfruit Sweetener (affiliate link), but use any sweetener of your choice.

I haven’t frozen it yet, but I’m sure this soup freezes well.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This Corned Beef Soup is great for low-carb or Keto plans. Corned beef isn’t really recommended for the original South Beach Diet, due to the amount of saturated fat. However, if you indulge in it for a special occasion like St. Patrick’s Day, this soup is packed with other low-glycemic ingredients which makes it a healthful way to use the leftovers.
