How To Make hamburger macaroni soup/stew

  • 1
    In a frying pan on med-high heat, cook and crumble hamburger until done.
  • 2
    Add garlic, onion, celery, salt, pepper and marjoram. Lower heat to medium, cook 15 minutes or until onions are soft and transparent.
  • 3
    While cooking hamburger mixture, turn a crock pot on medium-high heat and add tomatoes with juice and tomato soup (use a small amount of water to rinse can and add to crock pot), stirring occasionally, bring to a soft boil.
  • 4
    Into tomato mixture, add chili powder, beans and hamburger mixture. Cover and return to a soft boil stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for at least an hour, but the longer it simmers, the better the taste. I like to simmer for about 4 hours.
  • 5
    Approximately ½ hour before serving, add 2 to 3 cups of cooked elbow macaroni to crock pot. Because the macaroni will soak up the juice, add water as necessary,depending on if you want more of a soup or stew consistency.
