COOK TIME

No, this isn't a mistake - it really is hamburger soup! This is hamburger that we eat with a spoon...and serve with a bun for dunking! But we do recommend serving it with a ladle instead of a spatula.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 7 cups beef broth
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen peas and carrots
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, brown ground beef and onion 5 to 8 minutes, or until browned; drain.
     
  2. Add remaining ingredients, reduce heat to medium, and cook 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.

My neighbor introduced me to "Hamburger stew" many years ago. You brown the ground beef, drain off the fat, and add vegetables same as for beef stew. I use canned tomatoes, celery, onion, carrots, and potatoes. Seasoning is garlic and onion powder. Also a few healthy dashes of Worcestershire sauce, and lastly, add 4 bay leaves. Let simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Serve with hot yellow cornbread smeared with butter. Nothing better on a cold winter night!

I have been making this for years since I ate it at a restaurant. the only thing I add that I don't see is green peppers (chopped) and sometimes shredded cabbage.

My husband has been making hamburger soup for years but he adds alot more veggies like can of mixed veggies,potatoes and okra with homemade cornbread on the side. Very good for cold winter nights!

An old favorite of mine. I did ad macaroni. So many ways to make this soup. This recipe was pretty good

Buttermilk Cornbread 1 c. yellow cornmeal 1/3 c. all-purpose flour 1 tsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1 egg, beaten 1 c. buttermilk or (1T sour cream + milk to make 1 c.) Combine dry ingredients; add egg and buttermilk, mixing well. Pour batter into a well greased 8-inch square pan. Or make a double batch and pour into 8X13 pan. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

I also have made this recipe (similiar) and my kids grew up on it and we call it Hobo stew! and they always loved it and still do when they get back home. I do add potatoes and much the same as your recipe, I use chili powder also. and sometimes I use taco seasoning instead. yummy

I have made hamburger soup for years, I always add macaroni, my kids grew up on it. The vegetables vary with what is on hand. We love hamburger soup

I have this recipe except I put in a large can of tomato juice, a bag of frozen mixed veggies, and 4 large potato's peeled and diced. I have even added homemade dumplings when it is just about ready to servce with hot bread.

Like so many others, I too have made hamburger soup (I call it stew) for years. A neighbor gave me the idea. I use the ground beef just as though it was cubed beef for beef stew. I also use beef boullion, potatoes, celery, onions, carrots, lots of garlic powder (or crushed garlic), and tomatoes (diced or stewed). I also add bay leaves and several dashes of Worchestershire sauce. It's wonderful on a cold winter's eve! Serve with cornbread hot from the oven!

I would like to ask Dendy2 if she has a good cornbread recipe she could share with us please

I have made hamburger soup for years but use all of the root veggies that are in season. Also use beef broth. Very tasty!

Can I have your cornbread recipe please

Similar to mine. I use leeks rather than onions, and celery. Also add a can of T sauce, barley, and do not drain: but remove fat when cool. Always better the second day

Ive made this soup for years and it is the best. I cook 1/2 cup barley until 3/4 done,cook H-bgr,onion,garlic by it self.drain and add the barley,H-bgr after the tomato,veg mix is hot (using crock pot) I v'e found if you mix all to-gether and cook it will become mushey and have a bitter taste. Make sure you drain the H-bgr before you add it to the pot.

I think mine is much better. I use celery, onions , carrots cut up. I use a low salt low sugar chopped canned tomatoes or fresh. I use barley for flavor. I only use water and the soup has alot of flavor. Use the whole package of celery. A great diet soup.

I add cabbage, too! I lost 50 lbs. with this soup years ago....also like to add a bit of tomato....soup, or sauce for color. This is a wonderful way to clean your fridge!! Don't forget, BAY leaves!

For those who like the taste of mustard and ketchup, try leaving them on the table and treat them as condiments. Those who prefer them in their soup can always add them themselves. Give it a try!

This is pretty much the way that I know hamburger soup.

I make a hugh pot of this all the time, you will need more tomatoes also tomatoe sauce but I add a can of green beans and also can or frozen corn and a can of veg-all,also I do not drain the beef and onions I wait for it to cool all fat will come to the top and I spoon it out, it gives it alot more flavor. SO GOOD!!!

Unfortunately, I remember the entire Bryllcream jingle: Bryllcream a little dab'll do ya. Use more only if you dare. But watch out, the girls'll all pursue ya. They'll love to run there fingers through your hair!

All receipies are meant to be tweeked to each individuals' taste. Personaly I like catsup(Its like tomatoes) in beef soup. Experement people..go wild.Make it your own. Receipies are only meant to be a guide.

Every Spring and Fall....I make a huge pot of Hamburger Soup....I don't use the ketsup or the mustard, tho'!! I find every vegetable in my fridge, including cabbage, and I go wild for this! It is calorie free, very healthy...and if you want to lose weight....this soup (or any) is the trick!! Years ago...I lost a lot of weight, and have been making it since!! Add a bayleaf, too!!

I personally think that a dollop is much, much, much too much to be added to it. A little dab'll do ya, I've always understood. Anyone else out there that knows where that particular phrase comes from? Lol - cllM

It was a slogan for Brylcream hair dressing for men. "Brylcream, a little dab'll do ya". I think the ad campaign was late 50's or early 60's. And I agree on the dollop. Never would I put mustard or ketchup in any soup....gross! But I don't understand peas & carrots in hamburger soup. Paula Dean has one and she uses shredded lettuce as a garnish. LB

I could be wrong but I think it came from an old Brylcream commercial. Anyone else????????

Definitely the Brylcream commercial. I remember it well!
