If you’d like to watch your fat intake, you can make this with the lower fat hamburger meat, or turkey meat.

 

Diced onions and minced garlic in a skillet for easy hamburger soup.

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).

 

Peeled and cut potatoes for soup.

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.

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!

This is my mothers recipe except for one thing. She always added in 1/2 head or so of cabbage. Then it was vegetable soup and yes it is delicious. The stock can be increased to six cups and can be made from six beef boullion cubes, If you then add a bay leaf, you are in heaven. We have eaten it all my life and my daughter and granddaughter make it as well.
