This simple, basic soup, is so delicious, that I've made it twice within one week. Mimi in Maine had posted the recipe at food.com, but I did modify the recipe to our liking.

How To Make hamburger soup

  • 1
    In a large stock-pot, lightly brown the ground beef. Do not drain off the grease, as I use that to sauté the vegetables in.
  • 2
    Add the onion, carrots, and celery to the stock-pot. Season the vegetables with the salt and pepper, and sauté the vegetables for 5 minutes.
  • 3
    Add the minced garlic, and continue sautéing for 2 more minutes.
  • 4
    Add the remaining ingredients, and bring soup to a boil. Then reduce the heat, and simmer the soup covered for 55 minutes.
  • 5
    Ladle soup into bowls, and serve.
