Farmhouse Hamburger Soup

I absolutely love it when the weather starts to cool off and you can start making soups, stews and chili in your crock pot.  Well the weather is warmer this week than it was last, but it is very rainy so I think soup is good on those gloomy rainy days too. I have made this recipe in the past and absolutely love it, paired with some texas garlic toast. I love soups because you can always save the left overs in a gallon size freezer bag and then when you want it again thaw the night before and put it back in the crock pot to reheat.

Ingredients

  • oil
  • ½ onion, chopped fine
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cans petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 can green beans, drained
  • 1 can baby peas, drained
  • 2 potatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup baby carrots
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • salt to taste
  • lots of freshly ground black pepper
  • cheddar cheese, grated
  • sour cream
  • tabasco sauce

Directions:

  • Cook onions in oil until tender; add ground beef and cook until beef is done.
  • Dice up your potatoes while browning your hamburger meat.
  • Add potatoes to the crock pot, then add your hamburger meat and onion.
  •  Add tomatoes, corn, green beans, peas, potatoes, carrots, tomato sauce, chicken stock, and seasonings.
  • Cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4-5 hours (until potatoes and carrots are tender)
  • Top with cheese, sour cream and tabasco sauce to taste.
