The next stop for the pot roast leftovers was a pot roast mushroom soup that I had come across on chaos in the kitchen a while ago. I liked the sound of using the super moist, tender and flavourful beef in a soup and adding one of my favorite foods, mushrooms, had me completely sold. I liked the simplicity of the recipe so I left it mostly as is, though I did add some thyme which I always enjoy with mushrooms. The pot roast mushroom soup came together quickly and easily and turned out great! The beef could only get even more tender after simmering it again and it went really well with the mushrooms that were sauteed in butter. The soup was nice and tasty and full of flavour. Most of the leftover pot roast was covered in some of the tasty sauce that it was braised in so that added even more flavour to the soup. I served the pot roast mushroom soup with some cheesy toasted garlic bread .
Pot Roast Mushroom Soup
Got some leftover pot roast? You can’t go wrong using it in this rich and flavourful pot roast soup with mushrooms!
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 small onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
- 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
- 1/4 cup flour (or rice flour for gluten-free)
- 1/4 cup red wine
- 4 cups beef broth
- 2 cups pot roast, cooked and shredded
- 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
- Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms have released their moisture and it has evaporated, about 15-20 minutes.
- Add the garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
- Mix in the flour and cook for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the wine and deglaze the pan.
- Add the broth and beef, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Mix in the parsley and enjoy!

It looks amazing! Some hot mushroom soup would be perfect right now.
You are amazing, truly!

Mrs. L says
Ack, Kevin, I’m making this tonight, but…when do I add the beef? I’m assuming after deglazing the pan and adding the broth???
Mrs. L: Add the beef when you add the broth. I have fixed the recipe. Thanks!
*gasp* Be still, my trembling heart…
That looks amazing. I’m going to try it.
Thanks for the recipe! Was looking for a few ideas to use leftover Pot Roast. Happy Cooking & Blogging & everything else!
Sarah @ A Kitchen Canvas says
I can't wait for the cold weather to get here. I need to make a pot roast just to have the leftovers to make this soup.
needs to be a bit cooler here for this but I hoping it will be soon. Thank you from another Toronto'n BTW found this on Pinterest.
Love mushroom soup. Love pot roast so I know that I would LOVE this! What a clever soup!
Made this today as I was feeling a bit under the weather and had everything I needed to pull it together. Really wonderful results – I added a pinch of truffle salt at the very end to increase the umami – super delicious! My new favorite recipe for leftover pot roast & gravy.
I made this soup it was really tasty. I added a good amount of sherry to it.
Have a Joyful Day :~D
This sounds wonderful, thanks for sharing. found it on Pinterest. I rarely have much meat left over, but I always keep the juice/gravy for future dishes.
This is so delicious. Even made it once without the beef and added extra mushrooms! So Yummy! Thanks for your site, it's fantastic.
Loved the soup jus by lookin at it, imagine how it mus taste… Wud not like to disturb its taste even if it means by omitting the awesome cheese stuff…
Every time I get your recipes, I GET HUNGRY!! Everything looks so good!I I am going to try the POT ROAST MUSHROOM SOUP. UMMMM
Thanks again Kevin
Jodee Weiland says
This recipe looks so delicious and inviting! I want to make it right now and savor the flavors as I eat it! Thanks for sharing…your recipes are always good!
Trust me when I tell you, I've been making this soup for several years. It's fantastic! When I don't have pot roast left-overs, I grill small filets and use that delicious meat. I also HIGHLY recommend the dried mushroom mix from Costco for those of you that have access.
O my God Kevin I loved the Pot Roast and Mushroom Soup .
I just had to lick the bowl Kevin. Please keep up the good work
for all of us . Thanks
Going to make this with my husbands grilled beef roast seasoned with huge amounts of garlic and rosemary ala ATK. It makes an awesome steak rice & gravy, I'm sure this will be delicious.
This has become one of our favourites.
Oh yeas is am gonna make this soon.
Looks so yumm.
I had a few cans of roast beef chunks (Costco / Kirkland) that I normally use when prepping filling for taquitos. I rinsed the gravy from the beef and used beef in making this soup. I followed your recipe for all the other ingredients and it was awesome. My wife was impressed enough to request it again in the near future.
Deborah Van Dongen says
This has become a favourite. It is so good I buy ready to eat roast beef just to make the soup!
