Best Hamburger Soup
When it comes to easy dinner recipes, I rely a lot on ground beef. Since I always have ground beef in the freezer, I end up making this scrumptious hamburger soup at least a couple times a month.
It’s a no-fuss recipe that brings so much flavor to the dinner table.
I think everyone’s family probably has a similar version of this hamburger soup recipe.
Growing up, my mom called it ground beef and vegetable soup. This soup is great because you can really mix and match the ingredients based on which vegetables you happen to have on hand.
Hamburger Soup Ingredients
To make this soup, I like to use 85/15 ground beef, Yukon gold potatoes, carrots, celery, corn, and tomatoes.
I’ve also been known to add a can of green beans from time to time.
Italian seasoning and a bay leaf add tons of flavor!
How to Make Ground Beef and Vegetable Soup
I told you that this ground beef and vegetable soup recipe was easy to make, and I wasn’t kidding.
In a large dutch oven (I used a 6-quart), over medium heat brown the ground beef until done.
Next, simply spoon off the excess fat. Don’t worry if you’re left with a little, it is full of flavor, after all!
Now, just add the remaining ingredients to the pot and stir. Simmer your soup for 1 to 1 ½ hours (with the lid on, but tilted so steam can release) or until the vegetables are tender.
Remove the bay leaf and serve!
I have loads of popular soup recipes. Don’t miss my Instant Pot Potato Soup (we also have a Crock Pot version!). My Crock Pot Chicken Noodle Soup is also a winner every time. Oh, and my pal Stacie has a great Cheeseburger Pie recipe!
I’m also loving this delicious Minestrone Soup that I recently found on Pinterest!
I hope your family loves my easy hamburger soup!

21 Comments on “Hamburger Soup”
I love hamburger soup! I love the variations that can be made to your own taste! I make something similar to yours. I like to grab whatever canned veggies strike me at the moment, as long as they’re NO SALT. Juices and all go in my pot, I don’t need as much LOW sodium broth this way, maybe 1 lg box is all. I also always add lima, butter and kidney beans. Lots of onions and garlic are sautéed and then the hamburger is added with some pepper only. Sometimes I throw that into my stockpot and sautee carrots, celery and the potatoes in my cast iron skillet. Not a fan of bay leaves, and I make my own Italian seasoning. My pot is always overflowing with goodies and I always say next time I’m cutting back, yet I never do! Ha!
Could you just use a bag of frozen mixed vegetables?
I added frozen sweet corn and green beans. Delicious!
This recipe was really easy to make and did not take a long time to make. I added Italian Sausage to the hamburger and it was great. Gave some to my best girlfriend, mother and mother in law and everyone loved it. This will be one that I will be making all winter. This soup and cornbread is filling and you will want to go back for more even if you are already stuffed.
Can you make this in the crock pot??? If so for how long???
How long would I cook this in the crockpot?
I have this in my Instant Pot now and it smells
Someone turned me on to Hamburger Soup a long time ago and I forgot how to make it. And I just loved the taste of the succulent ground beef. Mmmmmmm.
So. I am so excited to see it again !!!!!!
PS.. mine was made with quarter inch
I love this soup, I added macaroni and kidney beans too, so good
Can it cook in slow cooker/crockpot ?? It sounds good but would love to use in crockpot all day
Super easy. I made it to feed the hatd working farming boys on a cold and snowy day. Served with fresh bread. Delish!!!
I plan on saving this one for future use.
I added mushrooms fresh
2 billion cubes 2 cups water
And noodles turned out really good
Made this delicious soup on a chilly night with Christmas Eve arriving tomorrow and let me just say it’s amazing!! I did add red and white kidney beans overall it came out a success! Thanks for sharing ☺️
Sounds nutritious and easy. Thank you
I make one similar to this. I leave out potatoes and use noodles. Yum!
Love love love this soup. I did add a small head of cabbage rough chopped. Oh my. I could eat this every day of the week!!! Thanks Crissy for sharing.
This looks delicious! I can’t wait to give it a try!
My family loved this easy recipe! I was wondering what I was going to make for dinner when I received a notification for this recipe. It was snowing (May 20th), and I thought a stew would be perfect! I had all the ingredients. I threw them in the Crock-Pot, and dinner was served! The recipe went in my tried and true notebook. Thanks for the easy, but delicious meal!
Made the soup today. Will keep making the soup.
This looks great. I can’t wait to try it!
very good and easy
