Hearty Hamburger Soup-for the Crock Pot

Angie Robinson


This is great on a cold day. I sometimes prepare it ahead and throw in the crock pot on low. When I get home from work it's ready to go! As a kid we called this camper stew; I added a few things to make it heartier. This pic is from online and shows it with extra green beans.

10 Min


1 lb
ground chuck, cooked
1 large
can of veg-all, drained
2 can(s)
vegetarian vegetable soup
1 can(s)
petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1/2 c
diced frozen onions
1 c
beef broth
potatoes, peled and cubed
1 tsp
garlic powder, or more
2 tsp
chili powder
1/2 tsp
worcestershire sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

Brown beef (or ground turkey) with the onion, drain. Dump all ingredients in a large pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for at least a half hour. If its too thick add more broth or water. If you simmer it longer it will just get better.
You may also cook in a slow cooker on high 4 hours or low 6-8 hours. Serve with oyster crackers, biscuits or crusty bread, and top it with some shredded cheese if desired.
