Lazy Day Hamburger Soup

Sabrina Nichols


My family absolutely loves this soup! I serve it with a side of warm french bread or corn bread. It's fulfilling, hearty and easy. You can make this soup thicker by add more meat in the first step. It's up to you.

How to Make Lazy Day Hamburger Soup


  1. 2 lb. of ground meat - thawed, cook in a skillet until browned. Leave the meat in bite size chunks while browning.

    ( I usually add chopped onions & garlic while browning, but that's optional )

    Drain fat from meat and place back in pan.

    You can use different combinations of ground meat or all of the same kind, just as long as its 2 lb.

    e.g.-ground deer, lamb, sirloin, angus, and turkey.

    Turn on slow cooker to high- don't have a slow cooker get your big pot out.
  2. Ranch dressing, taco seasoning- add to the cooked meat with a little bit of water.
    Stir and place lid on and cook for about 10 mins.

    ( I just fill the empty seasoning pk up with water..roughly 1/2 -3/4 cups of water so the meat doesn't dry out)
  3. Red kidney beans- drained and rinsed

    Pinto beans- or you can sub for a can of chili beans

    Whole kernel corn- I like to only use 1/2 of a 15 oz can but your welcome to use the whole can with the liquid. It's up to you.

    Stewed tomatoes- I like to use 2 cans of this, but recipe calls for only 1.

    Mild dice tomatoes and green chilies- you can use hot, but it will have a little kick already with the green chilies.

    Tomatoes sauce

    Add all with the cooked seasoned meat to your slow cooker or pot.

    Add salt & black pepper for taste.

    Add 1-1 and 1/2 cups beef broth or add beef bullion to hot water.

    Slower cooker - high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours.

    Large pot stove top -bring to a boil cook for 15-20mins on high, then simmer on low with lid on for 45mins- 1 hour. Just stir and check every 15-20mins.
