How to Make Hamburger Macaroni Soup/Stew

Step-by-Step

  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.
