Gura Soup Recipe – say what?

January 11, 2018

Everyone always has their family favorite recipes. So, when you enter a relationship, it’s not uncommon that you want to share the deliciousness with your partner. {Enter Gura Soup.}

About a year after I met Garin, he wanted me to make this soup one winter night. First, I needed to know what the name was all about. Gura? Was that a new-found food I didn’t know about? Nope, just his mom’s maiden name-ha! Anyway, his Grandpa started making this soup way back when, and it became a staple across the entire family. Everyone knows what it is, and they’re always quick to snap a pic to share that they made it…making everyones mouth water. Including my own!

Alright, so this isn’t your average soup. Think pot roast. In a bowl. A top noodles. With ketchup squirted on top. Right? You can see how hesitant I was at first, (mostly because of the ketchup) but one bite in, and I was hooked. If I could make this every day, Garin would allow it. He loves it! We hope you enjoy this family favorite as much as we do!

Gura Soup

Yield: Makes a ton! Definitely consider this for leftovers…but I think you’ll like that 😉

Prep Time: 15 min | Cook Time: 4 hours | Total Time: 4.25 hours


  • 1 round roast (Size is preference…we get a 2-3lb roast)
  • (3) 32oz. containers of beef broth (I typically use a low sodium)
  • 1 white onion (Chopped or whole…your preference. It will break up.)
  • 1 large green pepper
  • (1) 28oz. can whole tomatoes
  • chopped celery (I use almost a full bundle)
  • 1 bag baby carrots
  • 2-3 large russet potatoes – peeled and cut
  • fresh or dry parsley (For flavor)
  • 1 Tbl. minced garlic
  • bowtie pasta
  • ketchup
  • OPTIONAL: saltine crackers on the side or atop the soup



Put everything into a very large pot, except the potatoes.

Bring to a boil, then simmer and cover for 3 hours.

Add the potatoes in and cook for an additional hour.

Boil the noodles once the soup is getting close to being done.

Take the roast out and pull it apart. Set aside.

Next, grab your bowl, put your pasta in first, then add in the soup. Add your meat on top and then let the ketchup flow.
