what’s not to love?

Delicious, warm soups are always my top craving when weather cools down. 😉 With that being said, I have another soup recipe for you. This next one was, yet again, one my mom made. It came from one of her old cookbooks and is called Hamburger Soup.

It’s a recipe that I had never had before, but it was a hit (honestly, I probably wouldn’t share any recipe that wasn’t, lol)! This soup has all the ingredients that everyone loves in a classic soup – meat, potatoes, and veggies. It was also very easy to make since it was all thrown in the crock pot.

I have a feeling this Hamburger soup will become one of those recipes I through in the slow cooker on a busy, fall day!

How to Make Hamburger Soup

Veggies. Add carrots and potatoes to the crockpot with water, and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours. (If you want it done faster, you can cook on HIGH for 1.5-2 hours.)

Beef. Meanwhile, brown the ground beef. After the potatoes and carrots have cooked, add the browned beef and remaining ingredients to the crockpot.

Cook. Cook for an additional hour on LOW (or HIGH for 30 minutes). Add one cup of cheese right before serving.

Let’s talk vegetables

 This soup is so versatile. Pretty much any vegetable can be used. The key is to add them at the correct time. Not all vegetables cook at the same rate.

  • Larger cut vegetables will need longer to cook so add them first. Save the small vegetables and finely diced vegetables for the later.
  • Potatoes: Stay away from russet potatoes which are higher in starch and can take on a grainy texture. Stick with red potatoes, yukon gold potatoes, fingerling potatoes, or long white potatoes.
  • Save time and use a frozen bag of mixed veggies

Additional Tips

How much to make per person: If the soup is a main dish a serving size is 1 ⅓ c. If the soup is an appetizer the serving size is 1 c per person.

How to store leftovers: Hamburger soup can last in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove top.

Can this be frozen? Yes,  If you plan to freeze this soup, be sure to undercook the vegetables. Allow the soup to completely cool. Place in a freezer safe container leaving 1 inch head space. Store for 4-6 months. Thaw in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave for smaller portions or on the stove top for larger portions.

 

If you’re looking for a flavorful and easy recipe, this Hamburger soup is definitely one to try. You  can’t go wrong with a delicious soup recipe like this! It would probably taste amazing with some warm rolls as well. 😉

  1. Quick question – the first step, throwing the carrots and potatoes in the crockpot, and cooking for 3 hrs – do you not put any liquids in ??

  2. Hi lil Luna! Just saw this recipe in your fall soup post. I need some clarification: what do you put in the crockpot with the potatoes and carrots?
