Hamburger Soup

I love beef vegetable soup, but I don't make it as often as I would like since we don't purchase red meat that often.  On the occasions that we do buy red meat, it's usually in the form of hamburger patties or ground beef.  I stay away from pricey beef cubes unless I can find a really great sale.

Hamburger Soup is a good substitute for the more traditional beef vegetable soup.  I find it to be quicker as well as less expensive, especially if you have some pre-cooked ground beef in your freezer.  I didn't have any on hand, but starting from raw ground beef only adds a few more minutes to the process.

Hamburger Soup 


  • 3/4 lb. ground beef
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 lg. carrot, diced 
  • 2 potatoes, diced
  • 3 Tbs. steak sauce
  • 1 Tbs. worcestershire sauce 
  • 2 cartons beef broth 
  • 1/2 Tbs. oregano
  • 1/2 Tbs. Mrs. Dash 
  • pepper, to taste 
  • 3 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed 
  • cooked pasta, small variety preferred 
  • Brown the the ground meat, drain. 
  • Add in your diced vegetables and the broth. 
  • Stir in the steak sauce, worcestershire sauce and seasonings.  
  • bring to boil.
  • Cover, reduce heat.  Allow to simmer for 20 minutes. 
  • Stir in the mixed vegetables and pasta, simmer for another 5-10 minutes. 

We love this soup!  It's an easy, throw-together soup that's perfect for during the busy work week.  It's such an easy and quick soup that you can throw together in the morning and serve for lunch on a cold afternoon!
