There is nothing better than a semolina dumpling soup made from beef stock. This is a German dish called Grießnockerlsuppe. Semolina dumplings are suitable for freezing, as does the stock. The boiled beef can be used for other dishes, such as marinated beef salad.
My German regional cookbook, Spoonfuls of Germany, has many more German recipes and stories about German cuisine. Visit my blog for more information.
