Hamburger Soup AKA Beef Vegetable Soup

by - Wednesday, December 15, 2010

I know the name could be a little off putting but think beef vegetable soup with ground beef instead of the other cut of meat. For lack of better name, we called it "hamburger soup" growing up and mom just went with it. I love this recipe because its so hearty, makes a nice pot full and is great for the winter months. This would be a great crock pot meal. I normally just serve with grilled cheese sandwiches.

3/4 - 1 lb. ground beef (or chuck)
1 lb mixed veggies (frozen or canned)
16 oz canned tomatoes (stewed or diced works best)
1 can beef stock or broth

  1. Sprinkle the ground beef with onion powder, garlic powder and seasoned salt or whatever seasonings you like.
  2. Brown the ground beef and drain excess oil when finished.
  3. In a large pot combine the mixed veggies (without liquid) and canned tomatoes (with liquid). 
  4. Pour half of the broth in and stir. Reserve the remaining broth.
  5. Add in the ground beef and stir.
  6. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer.
  7. If the soup needs more liquid while cooking, use the reserved broth as needed.
  8. The longer it simmers the better the flavors mix. I let mine sit for hours until the meat is super tender.
