Ingredients for ground beef soup

Recipe for Hamburger Soup

Prep your ingredients before really getting into this recipe. First, finely dice your onion and then set aside for later.

Similarly, chop your potatoes into small chunks. No need to worry about them oxidizing or getting brown- we’ll be stewing them soon enough!

Next up, we need to get some of our ingredients browned and cooked. To the bottom of a stockpot or large dutch oven, add your garlic, onion, and ground beef. Turn up the heat and allow your beef and onions to brown. Cook them until no pink remains in your ground beef.

Once that’s all cooked, get any fat drained off before adding some more ingredients. Add all of your remaining ingredients except for your mixed veggies, bring the mixture to a simmer, and let cook covered for about 10 minutes.

Other ingredients added to pot

After that initial 10 minute cook time passes, it’s time to add in your veggies. Stir those in and keep your soup at a simmer.

Veggies added to pot

Your soup is ready when the potatoes have become nice and tender. A quick poke with a paring knife will let you know if they’re done- if it stabs in and pulls out with no resistance, your potatoes are finished cooking. This should take about 20 minutes.

Grab a ladle and dish yourself out a generous portion! This soup especially is great with a side of some nice, crusty bread or topped with a little sprinkle of shredded cheese maybe. However you serve it up, we hope you enjoy!
