Directions

  1. Heat oil in a 5-quart pot over medium heat. Cook about half the beef in hot oil until completely browned, about 5 minutes. Remove beef with a slotted spoon to a bowl. Repeat with remaining beef.
  2. Cook and stir onion and garlic in the oil remaining in the pot until the onion is soft, about 4 minutes. Return beef to the pot; add tomato paste and stir to coat beef in paste. Stir oregano and bay leaves into the beef mixture; season with kosher salt and pepper. Cook and stir the mixture just until the oregano is fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Pour beef broth into the pot, cover the pot, and bring the broth to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer liquid until the beef is very tender, about 90 minutes.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook fideo in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain.
  5. Stir carrot and zucchini into the liquid; cook until the carrots are tender, about 15 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaves. Season again with kosher salt and pepper. Stir fideo into the broth; cook until the noodles are hot, about 1 minute.

Delicious! I made this exactly as written and only had to add additional salt before serving. I found the steps to be a little out of order. I recommend adding in the carrot and zucchini at the tail end of step 3. No need to cook the beef for 90 mins until tender, then have to add in the veggies for additional cooking time. Also, I recommend cooking the pasta when the soup is almost fully cooked. If you cook it too early, it'll sit there and clump up. Another option would be to just toss the uncooked pasta into the soup in the last few mins of cooking. I'm looking forward to having this for lunch again tomorrow! Yum!
