Hamburger Soup Recipe

We love this hamburger soup so much that it makes a regular appearance at our table. Even during the hot summer months! 

Simple to make, with only a little chopping needed, and it has the perfect hearty flavor that makes it the best kind of comfort food. Condensed tomato soup & worcestershire sauce are the “secret ingredients” in my hamburger soup that really provides the perfect hearty tomato flavor and thickness to the soup.

What You’ll Need

Simple and inexpensive ingredients are all you need to make hamburger soup.

  • Ground Beef – I use 93/7 lean ground beef. You drain the excess grease so you can really use any kind you like or what you have.
  • Onion – Use a yellow onion or a white onion for this recipe. 
  • Garlic – Fresh garlic cloves, chopped garlic from a jar, or garlic paste from a tube can all be used in this recipe. 
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Chopped Yukon Gold Potatoes – Peel the potatoes and then chop into really small pieces. Like less than 1/2-inch pieces. 
  • Beef Broth – I always use full-salt beef broth. You want that extra flavor in this soup. 
  • Condensed Tomato Soup – My “secret ingredient” that really makes it delicious.
  • Petite Diced Tomatoes
  • Frozen Mixed Vegetables – I buy a bag of frozen vegetables that has carrots, peas, corn, and green beans in it.
  • Worcestershire Sauce – Don’t leave this out! Really provides a lot of flavor with just a little bit.
  • Dried Parsley
  • Dried Basil

How To Make Hamburger Soup

You only need one pot to make this recipe!

Cook The Ground Beef : In the soup pot you are using, cook & crumble the ground beef, onion, garlic, and salt. When the ground beef is no longer pink you know it’s done. Drain the excess grease and liquid. 

Chop The Potatoes : While the ground beef is cooking, peel and chop the potatoes into really small pieces. 

Soup Ingredients : Add the chopped potatoes along with the remaining ingredients into the soup pot and stir.

Simmer Soup : Bring the soup to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium low, cover the pot with a lid, and simmer for at least 30 minutes. This soup tastes 100x better if you let it simmer for the 30 minutes.

Tips For Success

Here are a few tips to help you make this recipe.

  • Let It Simmer : This is so important! This soup tastes so much better after the 30 minute simmer time. Don’t try to shorten it or else the flavor of the soup will be impacted. 
  • Small Potato Chunks : Chop the potato into really small chunks, about 1/2-inch in size, so that they will soften in the 30 minute simmer time. If the potato chunks are larger, they will need to cook longer, so test the potatoes to see if they’re done. 
  • Check The Soup At The End For Taste : Taste the soup after the simmering time to see if it needs more salt & pepper. I usually end up adding a little bit of salt before serving. Especially if you use low-salt beef broth, check the taste, because you will probably have to add something until it’s where you want it. 
  • Use Full Salt Beef Broth : For best taste and flavor use the regular beef broth. As mentioned above, if you use the lower sodium beef broth then check the taste at the end of the simmer time and add additional salt as needed.

Variation Ideas

There are a few ways to change up this soup.

  • Add More Seasonings : We think it’s perfect as is but feel free to add additional seasonings if wanted. You can add Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, or even some chili powder or cayenne pepper for some spice. 
  • Use a Different Potato : I love the sweeter, buttery flavor of the Yukon gold potato but any potato can be used in this recipe. Red potatoes or Russet potatoes can all be used if wanted. 
  • Add Some Spice! : Use a can of diced tomatoes w/ green chilies or a can of Rotel diced tomatoes in place of the regular petite diced tomatoes. You can also add cayenne pepper or chili powder in with the other dried seasonings.

Serving Suggestions

I like to serve this soup with some bread on the side like these easy to make one hour rolls. You can make your favorite homemade bread or roll recipe, or buy some from the deli, or try some of the frozen bake n’ serve rolls from the freezer section of the grocery store. 

If you want to serve it with another side dish try serving it with some cut up fresh fruit that your family loves. 

How To Store Leftovers

Store leftovers in a covered container, like a Tupperware container, in the fridge for up to 4-5 days. 

Reheat leftovers in the microwave or warm it back up on the stove top. 

Can I Freeze Hamburger Soup?

Yes! This hamburger soup freezes perfectly. 

Put leftover soup in a freezer-safe gallon Ziploc bag, or freezer safe container, and freeze for up to 3 months. 

When ready to use the frozen soup, thaw leftover soup in the fridge overnight, or add the frozen soup into a soup pot over the stove and simmer until it’s ready. You may have to add additional broth or water when reheating the frozen soup.

Hamburger Soup is an easy tomato based soup recipe with ground beef, seasonings, potatoes, and it uses frozen vegetables for ease and convenience. This soup is made in one pot with easy simple ingredients.


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups peeled and chopped Yukon yellow potatoes chopped into small pieces (1/2-inch)
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz each) beef broth
  • 1 can (10 oz) condensed tomato soup
  • 1 can (15 oz) petite diced tomatoes do not drain
  • 1 bag (16 oz) frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil


  • In a soup pot, over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef, onion, garlic, and salt until no longer pink. Break up meat in crumbles as it cooks.
    Drain the excess grease.
  • Add chopped potatoes, beef broth, tomato soup, diced tomatoes, frozen vegetables, Worcestershire sauce, and the seasonings. Stir to combine.
    Bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover with a lid and reduce hear to medium-low. Let simmer for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to combine and the soup to become thicker.
  • Before serving, taste the soup after the simmer time and add additional salt as needed. I usually end up adding a little more.
  • Leftovers can be frozen for up to 3 months or stored in the fridge, in an air-tight container, for up to 5 days.



Potatoes : Yukon yellow potatoes are the best to use and what I prefer. But you can also use red potatoes or russet potatoes as well. Be sure and cut them into really small pieces so they will soften in the 30 minute simmer time. 
Garlic : Use fresh garlic cloves that have been minced or pressed, use chopped garlic from a jar, or garlic paste from a tube. 
Beef Broth : Using the regular, full salt beef broth for the best flavor. If using lower sodium beef broth, be sure and taste the soup at the end of the simmering time and add additional salt as needed. 
Serving Size : This recipe makes 10 cups of soup. Feeds 8 servings of 1.25 cups each serving. 
Let It Simmer! : This soup has a completely different taste once it has simmered for 30 minutes. Don't skip this step because it won't taste the same with less simmering time.

  1. Jeremy Nation says:

    This was an amazing recipe, so I decided to do a double batch of it. When I did that, I did not use the diced tomatoes, and I noticed that towards the end the flavor was a tad weaker than I expected. So I added in a bit more salt and a few more shakes of Worcestershire along with a small bit of oregano and perfect. Not to mention, it gave me an excuse to break out my new dutch oven.

    1. Together As Family says:

      We love this soup too! The seasonings are very adaptable, I should probably make note of that, I always end up adding a bit more salt at the end too. A new Dutch oven! That’s exciting ?

  2. O M G is there any way that I can rate this? Definitely 5 stars!!! All the way! I made this for my mom as our dinner and she could not wait for it to be done. When I went back to check on it, she was already on her second bowl. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, I am so happy right now with all the compliments I received about it.

    1. Together As Family says:

      I do have a star rating system and I would love 5 stars. That makes me so happy to hear! We love this one too so I am really happy others enjoy it as much as we do. Thanks for reaching out to me and letting me know.

      1. Kristi Meadows says:

        Is there a way to do this in an instapot?

        1. Together As Family says:

          Yes, I think so. I would brown the ground beef with the onion in the IP on the saute setting. Turn off saute setting and add all the other ingredients. I have never cooked it in the IP so I am just guessing on time, but I would say 10 minutes maybe? Do a quick release and serve. I think it would work fine!

        2. Devin Stombaugh says:

          I did it just as she said, it worked amazing

      2. 5 stars
        This was so good. I added an envelope of dried onion soup. My husband loved it.

        1. I’m making it right now and I slso added a packet of the onion soup

  3. OMG! I love this soup. I love eating soup period. I also love okra in these kind of dishes so I got out the chopped frozen okra, rolled it in corn bread meal and added it to the soup as well. The acid in this tomato base of soup prevents the okra from becoming slimy. This is a 5 star soup.

    1. Together As Family says:

      Thank you so much Roma! It’s one of my favorite soups. I’ve never tried okra so I just may have to give it a try.

      1. T okra is a thickener also, it was used in a lot of cajun foods to replace flour in the fancier dishes.

    2. 5 stars
      I make this often for my family of 5 and we love it! I’ve never liked tomato soup but I sure do eat this up with some corn bread! I omit the canned tomatoes and seems to be okay. I also always add a pinch or so of sugar…to offset the tomato-y flavor. So good, thanks for the instant pot comments as well. Will be trying that next!

    3. 5 stars
      I did change recipe a tad due to what I had on hand and I worked by taste. I love the idea of adding okra. I didn’t use the tomatoe soup but more tomatoes and beef broth and a little browning sauce in place of worchestershire sauce. It was awesome and too thick to add any pasta which I often do in soup.. So glad because it kept it different and was delicious. I had tiny golden potatoes which I cut up but did not peel.

      1. Lucy Pulsipher says:

        So happy to hear you liked the soup! I also love reading in comments how people changed up a recipe to work for them, thank you for sharing!

  4. Michael Kelley says:

    Ok, Jessica, Ive been looking for this soup because my son says his girlfriends mother makes it and its his favorite. I’m counting on you. !! LOL. I grew up on a dairy farm and never heard of this soup. I did however have something close to it in Virginia at one of Thomas Jefferson pub hang outs were they serve classic revolutionary food. No pressure right. Let you know how it went.

  5. Is there any substitute for canned tomato soup? Trying to cut down on the prepared condensed soups.

    1. Together As Family says:

      You could try using canned tomato sauce but it does not have the flavor or slight sweetness that tomato soup has. Maybe try a tomato sauce with the Italian herbs in it.

    2. Hi. Cathy,
      I am gluten free and can’t have canned tomato soup. instead I used 4 Tbsp tomato paste and about 3/4 of a cup of water.
      I know your question was a few years ago but maybe this will help someone with the same question.

  6. 5 stars
    This soup is AMAZING! Thank you for sharing it. I doubled the recipie so i could freeze some for later..not so sure its going to get to that freezer,lol

    1. Together As Family says:

      haha, I hope it makes it to the freezer 🙂 The soup freezes really well. I always add some broth or water when I reheat it. So happy to hear you loved this soup and THANK YOU for the 5 star rating.

      1. I like to add an individual serving can of tomato juice when reheating after freezing. It deepens the tomato flavor!!

        1. Together As Family says:

          Oh yum. I love that idea of the tomato juice. I bet that is amazing. Thanks for your comment.

  7. Lori J Chapman says:

    5 stars
    Love this soup! How long would you suggest for doing it in the slow cooker? Thanks!

    1. Together As Family says:

      Depending on how hot your slow cooker cooks, I would say 5-6 hours on low. It could stay on warm for awhile afterwards if needed. The meat is already cooked so it’s just blending the flavors and getting the veggies soft.

  8. Donald Lesondak says:

    5 stars
    I made this with a can of Italian stewed tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce. Also I pre-cooked fresh potatoes and carrots so they wouldn’t be under-cooked when the soup was done. Added a can of corn, but no frozen vegetables. Turned out great!!

    1. Dayna Cosby says:

      Can you make this in a crock pot?

      1. Together As Family says:

        Yes you can. Just make sure the ground beef is cooked and then add everything together in the crock pot. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

        1. This soup my boyfriend said was so yummy. I had to cook in the crock though for about 8 hrs because the carrots and the potatoes were not close to being done at at 4-6 hrs.

          1. Together as Family says:

            Thanks for your comment! I’m glad it still worked out even though it needed extra cooking timer.

    2. 5 stars
      This soup is super ! I’ve made it several times and my family loves it. I often add chopped cabbage , I love the flavor it adds…sometimes I also add extra black pepper also. .
      Thanks for this recipe, its reminiscent of a soup we made over a camp fire when I was a girl scout.

      1. Together As Family says:

        Oh, how fun. I was in girl scouts long ago too! Thanks for your feedback and comment. I appreciate it.

    3. 5 stars
      Great soup! Big hit with the family!

  9. Donna Huff says:

    I found your recipe when I was searching for comfort food. My husband and I loved this soup. We don’t eat a lot of garlic so I used one clove. As it was finishing, the smell had my husband circling around the stove. Thank you for such as easy delicious meal. Plan to put it in the rotation.

    1. Together As Family says:

      My husband does that too, haha 🙂 I am so glad you guys love this soup. Thanks so much for taking the time to come back and leave your rating and review.

  10. Angie Alford says:

    Wow! I’ve tried a lot of homemade soup recipes over the years, but this one is tops for flavor! My husband could not stop raving about it and has already told me I need to make it again soon. Delicious! Thank you for the great recipe.

    1. Together As Family says:

      You’re so welcome. And I’m so happy you love this recipe. It’s definitely one of my favorite soups.

  11. 5 stars
    I love this soup. Use canned vegetables and rinse them, used ground turkey instead of beef, and tomato sauce instead of the soup. Cooking for a diabetic. She loves it.
    Thanks so much

    1. Together As Family says:

      You’re welcome! And I’m so glad you can adapt it. I’m a big fan of ground turkey so sometimes I’ll use it in this soup.

  12. joni davis says:

    approximately how many servings do you get out of this recipe? I need to feed a crowd and was wondering how to calculate what I need to purchase, but I couldn’t find serving information anywhere.

    1. Together As Family says:

      I’ll have to go add it in. This makes 6 big servings or for my family I can get 8 servings cause of little kids. We always have leftovers for lunch for 1-2 days after.

  13. Made this today and it was wonderful on a cold Sunday afternoon. I used ground lamb meat instead of beef and added a couple of bay leaves. Delicious! That you so much for sharing it.

    1. Together As Family says:

      You’re so welcome. I do love bay leaves. I’ll have to add those when I make this again.

  14. Dottie Linn says:

    How much does this recipe serve/yield?

    1. Together As Family says:

      6-8 adult sized servings. If kids are eating then you can get more servings from it.

    Thank you so much for this easy yet delicious recipe!! This recipe is perfection, i will absolutely be adding it to my cookbook! The only thing i had to do differently was finding a substitute for tomato soup, as i only had tomato sauce on hand. I googled a substitute and this one worked perfectly: 1 can tomato sauce, 1 TBSP brown sugar, 1 TBSP corn starch, 1/2 tsp salt. Next time i will have that tomato soup so its even easier ? The only thing i intentionally added was one bay leaf while simmering. Thank you again!

    1. Together As Family says:

      Thanks for sharing the tomato soup substitute. I did not know you could that. And, it makes me very happy that this recipe is a winner. My family loves it too.

  16. 5 stars
    We loved the soup and it was so easy to make. It’s great on a cold winter day.

  17. I’m going to try it without the meat. Has anyone done that yet? Sounds yummy.

  18. I grew up on this soup and made it for my family too – even the toasted hamburger buns!! Still a favorite easy winter recipe.

    Hi, delicious soup. I’ve been making this for over 40 years. The recipe was given to an aunt by her Doctor when she was diagnosed with Diabetes. The only difference is I use 28 oz. can of Italian Tomatoes in place of tomato soup and diced tomatoes. Also, doesn’t need beef broth. Very good and freezes beautifully. This is my weekly 30 minute meal.

  22. M Bellesi says:

    What a delicious soup! This is the best vegetable soup we have ever tasted. I used stew beef instead of hamburger and it turned out really great. I cut the potatoes into a little larger cubes so they stay a little firmer and they did cook completely. I cut the stew beef in bite-sized pieces and the meat cooked completely too. The flavor of the soup is out of this world. thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

  23. 5 stars
    This soup is delicious! I substituted cauliflower for the potatoes and used organic tomatoe soup to cut down on starch and sugar. I will make this again!

    Love the recipe. I add Ditalini pasta instead of potatoes. A very versatile recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  26. 5 stars
    I made this soup today. I followed the directions and the soup was just great! This is a keeper!

  27. Would it work to use frozen hash brown potatoes in place of chopping some up? (That way they’re uniformly sized AND I don’t have to actually chop them!)

    1. Together As Family says:

      That’s a great idea. I think that would work. I would maybe thaw them for a bit before adding to the soup (so you don’t add too much water). Let me know how it goes cause that’s a big time saver.

  28. Simmering on the stove. Using venison cause that’s our “beef” no tomato soup, so just diced and sauce. Smells good. My dad is the one to please. Here’s hoping… Thanks!

    Five stars ! I do this in my instant pot. After sautéing the ground beef with onions and garlic, I drain it, then add back into the instant pot with all other ingredients. High pressure 17 mins. I do let it sit a few mins and then quick release pressure. It was marvelous !! I love adding frozen veggies. I use regular beef broth, regular tomato soup, and I do not find it needs any salt added.

    Um, yum! Great leftovers, too!

    Yummy and Easy. What is the serving portion size ( 1 Cup? 2 Cups? ) I am trying to figure out how much you can eat for the 266 calories listed for 1 serving. I am not familiar with the kcal terminology for calories shown in the recipe.

    1. Together As Family says:

      The kcal is just calories. I am honestly not sure why it’s listed like that. The serving size I used was 1 1/2 cups of soup. I hope that helps.

  33. I made this soup… I doubled the recipe .. I substituted a jar of marinara sauce and a half jar of water for the tomato soup.. just for some added flavor… great soup!!! Easy to make and very hearty

  34. How much cook time would you say for crockpot on low or high?

    1. Together As Family says:

      I would do LOW heat for maybe 4-5 hours. Just make sure the ground beef is cooked before adding it into the slow cooker.

  35. 5 stars
    A nearly perfect soup. I have cooked this many times now. I use chicken broth instead of beef broth and I usually double the recipe because we can happily eat this soup for a meal or 2 for a few days. I eat it for breakfast sometimes. It is so nourishing an satisfying. You feel good after you eat it. Especially when it is cold outside. Thank you for a great recipe for this classic American soup.

  36. Such an easy recipe! I made it exactly the way the recipe states. No need to tweak at all! Perfect for a chilly day!

    1. Together As Family says:

      I love hearing this! Thanks so much for your comment.

  37. William C Hibbett says:

    My best friend’s mother made this soup all the time when I was growing up. The only difference is instead of using canned tomato soup she used to put in a bottle of ketchup. That would make it slightly sweeter then the tomato soup but it was delicious.

    1. Together As Family says:

      Interesting with the ketchup! Now that I think about it I think my mom may have done that too sometimes. So glad you enjoyed this version 🙂

  38. Michelle Parks says:

    This looks really good! How long should I cook this in a slow cooker?

    1. Together As Family says:

      I would cook the ground beef first and then cook everything on LOW for 5-7 hours depending on how hot your crock pot cooks at.

    Googled vegetable soup with ground beef & this on came up. So glad it did! Delicious and so easy! My Husband and 89yr old mom really enjoyed. I followed recipe but store I was shopping did not have low sodium broth so I did not add much extra salt.

  40. 5 stars
    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! It really was easy to make. Mines is still stewing but the Aroma in my kitchen right now have my family excited to try! Thanks so much, and looking forward to try more of your recipes.❤️

    So I am making this again for the 3rd time I think lol. I am using ground Turkey this time instead of ground beef. I love this recipe soooooo much. Thank you

    1. Together As Family says:

      So happy to hear you love it! And yes, I’ve used ground turkey before too. Yummy!

  42. Very good easy recipe, I switched out white potato for sweet potato for healthier option.

    I make something similar to this and I add hot salsa sauce to it. This is also good with garlic bread or french bread (baguette).

    Amazing!! We have made this about once a week to have in the fridge for lunches etc. I use Rotel fire roasted tomatos & season with Tony chaceres Cajun seasoning for just a tad of spice. Love love love!!!

  45. Just made this today. So easy. Followed the instructions but then put it in a Crock-Pot and let it simmer for a few hours. LOVED IT ❤️.

      I make this soup but put all vegetables and can vegetables. I use potatoes, yams, turnips and brussel sprouts. I will use tomato soup or bravo sauce and spices. I also use lipton onion soup mix.

  48. I doubled the recipe. I was short one can of tomatoes and did not have the tomato soup. I instead used spicy V-8 juice. I then choose not to use the basil or the parsley. I did put in 3 stalks of celery. It turned out well.

  49. My family and I loved this soup. It was so easy to make. I even went lazy and used a can of diced potatoes. My son and I fought over the last bowl…lol. we were sad to see it was all.

    Dear Jessica there needs to be more stars the reason why I chose your recipe was because of the picture when I was growing up and even when I came home on leave from the service my grandmother always had a pot of vegetable soup waiting for me and your picture looks exactly like the way hers did show my stomach and I and my memories thank you

    1. Together As Family says:

    Very simple, delicious, and filling soup! The recipe as written makes a good amount, probably eight generous servings, so if you double it, you are going to have *a lot* of soup.

    I’m writing this in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic, and grocery shopping is kind of hit or miss…this soup is very adaptable. You could use any ground meat – beef, turkey, sausage (or none at all and add some extra veggies or rice/pasta) – and it would still be excellent.

    I know all slow cookers are different, but that method didn’t work out with mine, after 7 hours the veggies and potatoes were still not tender. Next time I will just do it on the stovetop.

    Either way, this one is a keeper!

    Easy to make and delicious! Just the right blend of seasoning. I used turkey instead of ground beef, used very few white potatoes, and left out the salt and pepper, and instead of tomato soup I used tomato sauce with corn starch & brown sugar. I will add extra vegetables next time and serve over rice!

    Hello! I followed this recipe to the “tee” and it came out delicious! It reminds me of when I was a kid and couldn’t wait to eat soup on Sunday for dinner in the winter…although I can eat soup in hot weather too! Thanks for a great recipe!

    Definitely easy convenient, and enough for the family…

    This is the first recipe of yours that I’ve tried. Oh man, it has great flavor and surprisedly quite hearty! I followed it exactly– except the ground beef. I would definitely recommend the lean or turkey (as the recipe suggests) if you would rather not have the film floating on the top. I served it with garlic bread. We’re a family of four and everyone was super impressed 🙂 Thank you! I love this soup. It’s simple & fun to make– absolutely a keeper. I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes.

    Made this for dinner today. Didn’t have condensed tomato soup so used tomato juice instead. Was a little soupy so added some ditalini pasta at the end and it’s perfect!

    It’s going to sound weird, but this soup with a side of peanut butter on bread brings back childhood memories. I don’t know why, but it just works together. So yummy on a chilly day!

    Best soup recipe!! I didn’t have tomato soup so I read your recommendation in one of the comments. I ended up using petite diced tomatoes that had olive oil and garlic and then a can of tomato sauce. Next time I’ll make sure I have tomato soup for the full taste. It was so good though. This is my first recipe from you and it was a hit! Thank you! I’ll try more of your recipes!! ❤️❤️❤️

    I made this soup last night. It was very good. My husband had two helpings. He is not really a soup fan.I will definitely make it again. I give it 5 stars.

    1. Together As Family says:

      Thank you!! My husband is the same way when it comes to soup 🙂 So glad you guys loved the recipe. Thanks for coming back to let me know.

  69. Andrea Spivy says:

    Can I leave out the diced tomatoes? My son doesn’t like tomatoes.

    1. Together As Family says:

      Yes I think that would be fine. Not sure how much it would change the flavor… but you could definitely just not add them. If it’s the tomato chunks he does not like maybe try using a seasoned tomato sauce, tomato puree, or crushed tomatoes.

    I have used the same recipe for beef vegtable soup for years. I decided to try this one at last minute and I am glad I did. My husband said it was the best beef vegtable soup I had ever made. I was a little concerned about adding the condensed tomato soup but it really added to the flavor. I am not a fan of worcestershire sauce so I did not add. It was still amazing flavor.

    The only thing I did different was instead of a regular can of diced tomatoes I used a can of rotel tomatoes, it gave it such great flavor, I’d definitely make this again.

  81. This soup was delicious!! It’s now one of my new favorites!

  82. 5 stars
    Very easy and tasty. I doubled the recipe and cooked in an Instant Pot. Followed the recipe exactly otherwise. I personally think the salt needs to be doubled. We topped with Cheddar Goldfish crackers. Even better as leftovers.

  83. Mary Simek says:

    I have searched for a vegetable soup that we all enjoy and gave up already! Then I happened upon this one and hit the ball out of the ballpark with it! My MIL asked for the recipe and the in-laws are loving it! Super easy and delicious! 5 stars for sure!

    This became my new favorite soup. I absolutely love this.

  85. Donna Bacon says:

    I made the hamburger soup recipe. It was delicious and it seems we can’t get enough. I changed up some of the vegetables. I have never heard of putting basil in soup. I did and it taste great with basil. I was pleased that the recipe turned out good. It was a quick meal. It only took about 20 minutes. And a little bit to summer. I am giving this recipe an A and will keep it in mind for a quick meal.

    Just what my family and I needed on this cool rainy day! Very good soup recipe. Even better the next day too! And so easy to make.

    This is a wonderful soup anytime of the year! Sometimes I use ground turkey instead of ground beef. It is healthier and less expensive. Instead of canned tomato soup, I use V-8 juice and it adds a very nice flavor. I have shared this recipe with family and friends and everyone loves it!

  88. 5 stars
    So good! Very easy to make and the ingredients were simple and fun to play with. My family loved this. I paired it with honey cornbread muffins. Delicious!!

    1. Together As Family says:

      Oh yum! Cornbread is like my #1 favorite food… that sounds like an amazing meal you made.

  89. 5 stars
    Love this easy and delicious soup! Very forgiving, I add any leftover vegetables from fridge, box of broth instead of 2 cans (so a little more), whole onion, and pepper. My family loves soup and this one is a favorite. I needed to stretch it one night due to unexpected guests, added another can of chopped tomatoes, extra potatoes, and broth. Still so good.

    This was absolutely delicious. I used the recipe as is, but added some leftover celery so that it did not go to waste. This is so flavorful and I love having recipes that remind me of my mom. She used to make this all the time, but this one just has an extra depth of flavor. We eat it over rice with a little bit of soy sauce. Thanks for the stellar recipe.

    1. Lucy Pulsipher says:

      I love hearing how people make the recipes their own. It is so special to hear that it reminds you of your mom!

  92. Can u use chicken broth instead of beef broth. That’s all I have in cupboard?

    1. Lucy Pulsipher says:

      That should work out just fine! It will lighten the deeper ‘beef’ flavor of the soup but it will still be delicious!

  93. Just made this recipe and after reading the comments, I added a packet of French onion soup mix, a little chili powder, and some red pepper flakes. It’s fantastic!!!

    1. Together as Family says:

      Love the idea of adding those seasonings!

  94. Really good. Easy to make and it tastes great the next day!

  95. This soup is a super keeper, I triple the recipe because I love to make a lot at once you freeze the rest, I did add roasted red peppers and roasted tomatoes, I take care of old people for a living, I cook for them and they loved it. Great job. Thanks for your wonderful recipe.

    1. Together as Family says:

    I made this soup last night. my kids and grandson loved it. It was better than my mom used to make. I’m from the south, so I made cornbread to serve with it. I will definitely make this again.

    1. Together as Family says:

      Cornbread with soup is always a fantastic idea, now I’m craving some! I’m so glad the soup was liked all.

    Excellent! Made this as I thawed out some ground beef and didn’t want spaghetti, tacos or meatloaf! It was so easy to follow the recipe and quick to make. It really saved the day and my family says it’s a keeper. My mom used to make a variation of this soup, but this version kicked that memory up a notch and will be my new go-to recipe! Thanks so much!

  106. Janice Bacon says:

    Could I sub a box of roasted tomato non condensed soup ?

    1. Together as Family says:

      Flavor wise that would work- I’m just wondering what it would mean for the liquid content in the soup. If it is quite a few more ounces than 10 than I would reduce how much beef broth you add. Let me know how it turns out!

  107. 5 stars
    Delicious on a cold New England day! It was a hit with my family. Thanks for another great recipe.

    1. Together as Family says:

      Not too many things are better than soup on a cold day. ☺️ You’re so welcome!

  108. Can you use noodles instead of potatoes?

    1. Together as Family says:

      That should work. I would suggest adding them later in the cooking process so they don’t become mushy and watch that the liquid amount doesn’t get too low.

    This recipe reminds me of a stew my grandmother would make every Saturday. The only difference is that my grandmother would use all the leftover food from the week and dump it into a stew pot, and let it simmer for half a day and it was always so good! Since there really was no actually recipe for the stew, after she passed away, my dad and I struggled to figure out on our own what made her stew so good. This recipe gave us a great base recipe and that’s when more memories came back and we remembered some of the variations, like instead of beef sometimes she would use shredded chicken and instead of potatoes she would use egg noodles, and chicken broth. She always used a variety of veggies, those changed weekly, again, depending on what veggies they had eaten during the week. My daughter absolutely LOVES this stew. She asks for it all the time, even in the middle of the summer, when it’s 100 degrees outside, LOL. I cook mine on the stove and once it has simmered for 30 minutes, especially if I prepare it in the morning and won’t be home most of the day, I transfer it to my crockpot and keep it on either low or keep warm and the flavors are just perfect!

    Absolutely delicious!!! I didn’t change a thing about this recipe and it is always a massive hit with my family of 6. We pair it with homemade cornbread and everyone always gets a second bowl.
    Soup is such a comfort food and usually a pretty cheap one as well. I can really appreciate the easy yet tasty, nutritious ingredients in this one.
    Two thumbs up and 5 stars!!!
