Throw it all together in a big bowl, microwaved it for about 10 minutes.

My family loved it.

Just thought I would share.

Recipe For Hamburger Stew


My sis in law served this hamburger dish to my brother on their first invite over dinner date. Hamburger, cooked and crumbled, not crisp, canned green beans, sliced potatoes, onions if desired, mushroom soup, season as desired. Make a bit soupy, cook in oven, covered with foil. OR leave out potatoes and make mashed potatoes to put on top for a shepherd's pie type dish, adding mixed veggies if desired. Helps to have ingredients heated a bit before combining. (09/05/2008)

Recipe For Hamburger Stew

Got this from my MIL, have made it for DH, but have never tasted it myself. There was a note of "remember moms don't is a little of this, a pinch of that"

While preparing onions & hamburger, you can preboil water in a kettle. This will create less time to bring water to boil later when you add to pot.

Use 4 quart pan for soup.

Saute medium chopped onion in a little olive oil in 4-quart pan..

When soft, saute 1 pound hamburger with onions until hamburger no longer red.

Add (boiling) water to mixture. Bring to boil.

Add about 3/4 large bag of egg noodles or elbow macaroni, or combination of both, or whatever kind of pasta you want.

Cook until still a little hard (al dente). The noodles will continue to cook while resting in hot liquid.

This soup will turn into a stew rather than a soup upon preheating (gets real thick).

Never bring soup to a boil when reheating, because you will create mush.

If you use real lean hamburger, add 2-3 bouillon cubes to add taste.

Add a little oregano if you like an italian taste.

Right before serving (10 minutes for me) add a can of stewed tomatoes (09/06/2008)
