  • Olive oil – just a tablespoon.
  • Ground beef – 1 lb should do it. Lean is great if you’re watching the fat.
  • Onion – dice up a medium one.
  • Garlic – 2 cloves, minced. Garlic lovers, feel free to add more!
  • Carrots, celery, and potatoes – chop ’em up!
  • Some Italian seasoning and a bay leaf for that herby punch.
  • Beef broth – 4 cups for that rich base.
  • Canned goodies: diced tomatoes, condensed tomato soup, and tomato paste.
  • A dash of Worcestershire sauce for a bit of tang.
  • Canned green beans and corn – because easy is best.
  • Salt and pepper – you know, to taste.

Making the Magic Happen

Step 1: Start with the Ground Beef: Heat up that olive oil in a big pot, toss in the beef, onion, and garlic. Cook it until the beef is brown and happy.

Browning the meat properly is crucial in ground beef recipes. You’ll want to cook it until it’s nicely browned, not just until it’s no longer pink. This step is about more than just cooking the meat; it’s about developing a deep, savory flavor that will infuse the entire soup. Also, don’t rush this step; let the beef take its time to brown properly.

Step 2: Veggie Time: Throw in the carrots and celery. Cook ’em for a few minutes until they start to soften.

Step 3: All Together Now: Add the potatoes, beef broth, tomato products, and Worcestershire sauce. Give it a good stir.

Step 4: Simmer and Enjoy: Add green beans and corn, bring it to a boil, then let it simmer for about 35-40 minutes. You’re looking for those veggies to get tender.

Some Tips from a Fellow Home Cook

Beef It Up: Lean ground beef is great, but use whatever you’ve got. It’s all good.

Veggie Variations: Got other veggies? Toss ’em in. This soup is super forgiving.

Canned Veggies Count: I actually LOVE the way canned green beans and corn taste in this recipe!

Spice It Up: If you like it spicy, add some red pepper flakes or hot sauce.

Thick or Thin: Soup too thick? Add more broth. Too thin? Let it simmer a bit longer.

Leftovers Rule: This soup is even better the next day, and it freezes well, too.

Why This Ground Beef Soup Rocks Nutritionally

Not only does this soup taste awesome, but it’s also pretty good for you. Ground beef gives you protein and iron, and all those veggies pack a nutritional punch with vitamins and fiber. It’s a full meal in a bowl!

    Fantastic! I used frozen mixed vegetables instead of canned (I had them on-hand) and left out the potatoes (don’t care for potatoes in brothy soups.) The soup is hearty and satisfying abd the recipe makes 8 big servings.
