Yummy Hamburger Soup

Brown 1 pound of hamburger in a Dutch Oven with 1 cup of chopped onions and 2 teaspoons salt. Add 1 cup of chopped, peeled carrots and 1 cup of chopped, peeled potatoes. A teaspoon of parsley is nice but optional. Then add a quart of homemade tomatoes and a cup or two of water and let it simmer for 20 minutes. Taste for salt and serve with a slice of homemade bread or a biscuit. I often have seconds.

Yummy Hamburger Soup

My Mother's Hamburger Stew (I've tweeked it some)

  • 1-1 1/2 lbs hamburger
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

In a big pot add all of above and saute until hamburger is browned, drain, put back in pot. Add rest of ingredients except cabbage.


  • 1 can stewed tomatoes
  • 1-8oz can tomato sauce
  • 2 cups potatoes. cubed
  • 1 heaping cup carrots or 1 can (do not drain)
  • 1 can green beans (do not drain)
  • 1/2 pkg dry spaghetti mix or 1-2 Tbsp. taco seasoning
  • Salt, pepper and other seasonings of your choice*
*I use garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley and 2 bay leaves, remove bay leaves before eating.

Mix and stir well. Add water to cover 1/2 inch above, can always add more. Add 1/4 head chopped (not too small) green cabbage, don't stir the cabbage in. Bring to boil and turn heat down,simmer until the potatoes are done.


If it isn't as thick as you like, thicken with instant potatoes.

Can be made in a crockpot. Even better reheated the next day. Feeds a bunch. :)
