Hamburger Soup – Easy and Satisfying Recipe

Yields: 6-8 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30-40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, green beans, peas, etc.)
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

Instructions

  • Brown and Drain the Beef: In a large Dutch oven or soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef, onion, and garlic. Cook, breaking up the beef with a spoon, until browned and no longer pink. Drain off any excess grease.
  • Combine Soup Base: Add the diced tomatoes, condensed tomato soup, beef broth, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to the pot. Stir well to combine and bring to a simmer.
  • Add Veggies: Add the potatoes, corn, and mixed vegetables to the soup. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
  • Adjust Seasoning and Serve: Taste the soup and adjust seasonings (salt, pepper, Italian seasoning) as needed. Serve hot with your favorite toppings.

Tips & Variations:

  • Get creative with toppings: Shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped fresh herbs, sliced green onions, or crumbled crackers all make wonderful additions.
  • Customize your veggies: Feel free to choose your favorite vegetable combinations. Diced carrots, green beans, celery, or zucchini all work great.
  • Make it creamy: Add a splash of heavy cream or half and half at the end for a creamier soup.
  • Spice it up: If you like it with some heat, add a pinch of red pepper flakes or some hot sauce.
