Recipe for Hamburger Soup

I just made this for my partner the other day. He grew up on it (he seemed to enjoy it, I just could not bring myself to try it.) Included is the disclaimer I got from my partner's mom when we requested the recipe:

"Remember moms never use precise measures--a little of this, a little of that..."

While preparing onions and; hamburger, you can pre-boil 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 reheating (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 flavor.

Right before serving, add a can of stewed tomatoes and let them heat through.

I have had this recipe for about 40 years and it has been a favorite with family and friends. Sometimes I substitute barley for the rice. Depends on your taste.
