Full recipe and printable instructions listed below.
Start by cutting up your veggies and set to the side.
I added carrots, celery, red and green bell peppers, and potatoes. I also cut up onions and had some minced garlic.
I’m throwing a couple more pics in because the veggies are so colorful!
If you’d like to watch your fat intake, you can make this with the lower fat hamburger meat, or turkey meat.
Add the onions and garlic to the skillet with just a touch of butter. I added them just before I put the meat in the skillet.
It smells soooo good.
While your beef is browning, peel and dice your potatoes.
Everyone around here likes big chunks of potatoes, so I didn’t cut them very small. (I put them in water so they wouldn’t turn brown while the meat was still cooking–I’m usually not this fast at cutting).
Once your meat is done cooking, take it off of the stove and drain the grease and set it aside.
TIP: I will pour my meat into a colander and let it sit in the sink for a minute so the grease will drip out. You can let it sit while you’re getting the soup ready to cook.
In a large saucepan, add the veggies and pour the beef stock into the pot.
Add the diced tomatoes and stir everything together.
Next, add the tomato paste, salt, and pepper and give it another good stir
Now, add your potatoes and seasonings.
Add the beef to the pot and stir again. If you think you need more liquid, you can add more beef stock or more water at this point.
Cover and bring the beef soup recipe to a boil. Once it boils, lower it to a simmer and set the timer for about 20 minutes.
Cook the soup on simmer until the timer is done or the potatoes are tender. It’s a wonderful and healthy piping hot ground beef soup recipe for the family.
Look at all that steam!
