Thai Lemon Beef soup with Ditalini

This weekend I came across a recipe for Lemon Chicken Soup with Spaghetti and after looking through it I decided to change it all around as usual and give it a Thai twist and use beef instead of chicken!

For this I used:

  • 6 cups of Swanson Thai Ginger Broth
  • 1 diced large onion
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 cup of chopped celery
  • 1lb of braising beef cubed
  • 6 Kaffir Lime leaves
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 cups of Ditalini pasta

In a large pot, add a drizzle of olive oil and braise your beef until it has a nice color. Remove beef from pot and put it aside, add another drizzle of olive oil and sauté the onions and celery until they are nice and transparent.



Add, carrots, beef and kaffir lime leaves. Cook for a few minutes until all the flavours have blended.


Add the Thai ginger broth and bring to a rolling boil, then add the Ditalini pasta and cook on medium for 10 minutes.


The result is total comfort food, perfect for a family dinner with a fresh baguette or some sinful garlic bread 🙂
