easy and savory hamburger soup Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 (32 oz.) containers of beef  broth
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • Handful of baby carrots, diced  (I used about 8 or so)
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 small cup of frozen corn
  • 1 small cup of frozen green beans
  • 1 cup uncooked pasta
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes with green chilies (like Rotel), undrained
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste (do this according to your liking)

instructions to cook an easy and savory hamburger soup

Step 1

In a large cooking pot add the olive oil and garlic over medium heat.

Step 2

Toss in the onion, carrots, and celery. Cook until the onion is translucent and stir often. This will only take a couple of minutes. Make sure you’re stirring – you don’t want your garlic to burn.

Step 3

Toss in the ground beef and use a large cooking spoon to crumble it and spread evenly throughout the bottom of the cooking pot.

Step 4

Once the beef is brown add the potatoes, beef broth, and canned tomatoes.  Cook over medium to medium-high heat until the potatoes are tender. This will take about 20-30 minutes depending on how large you dice your potatoes. This is a good time to get your cornbread going in the oven.

Step 5

Once the potatoes are tender, add in the corn, green beans, and pasta. Starch can also be added depending on your preference.

Step 6

Add 2 cups of water, thyme, and oregano as well as salt and pepper. I do kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper. Let the soup cook, still over medium to medium-high heat, until the corn and green beans are no longer frozen.

Step 7

Get a clean spoon and taste the brothy goodness. Does it need more salt? Add a little more until you get the salty taste to your family’s liking. In my case, I ended up adding 2 tablespoons total of kosher salt. Feel free to use a clean spoon in between tastings. And this only takes about 15-20 minutes.

Our Experience Making this easy and savory hamburger soup

My mother would freak out if she knew I fed my kids potatoes, corn, and pasta all in one meal. Feel free to omit any of the starch you don’t want in the soup. I just could not part- I love them all in my soup!

For two of my boys who think the soup is too hot, I drained the broth and served it to them on a plate kind of like it is a casserole.

Such an easy dinner recipe! We also like to serve our soup with sweet cornbread, what about you?
