Today was cold, snowy, and wet. The kind of weather that gets rush hour drivers frustrated. What better supper to come home to than a delicious bowl of steaming hamburger soup? Tonight that’s what I made! This recipe has been passed down and somewhat edited each time it’s been prepared. It’s an “eyeball it” type of recipe that you can tailor to your liking.
Things You Will Need
- 1 lb ground beef
- 3 medium potatoes
- 1 medium onion (chopped)
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 8 oz frozen peas
- 8 oz frozen sliced carrots
- 1 can whole kernal corn (drained)
- 28-32 oz tomato sauce
- salt and pepper (grill seasoning as substitute)
Peel, rince, and cube potatoes. Place potatoes in stock pot and add water (just enough to cover potatoes completely) and boil until tender. While potatoes are boiling brown and drain ground beef, season with salt, pepper, and minced garlic. Chop onion uniformly.
Once potatoes are tender, leaving water in stock pot, add chopped onion, peas, carrot, corn, and ground beef. Stir in tomato sauce and add water for desired consistency ( I added about 8 oz). Once all ingredients are mixed in well, cover and let simmer on medium/low for 45-60 minutes.
Stir occasionally to avoid scorching. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot with crumbled saltine crackers and enjoy!
