I love to enjoy classic dishes in the form of soup! When you take a dish typically full of gluten and place it in a soup, you don’t feel you’re missing a key component. Now, my favourite way to do this is with the Supreme Pizza Soup, which is so flavorful that I promise you won’t miss the pizza crust. However, that soup is a little too spicy to eat all the time, so today, I’m bringing you a milder soup, Hamburger Soup!
Even if you don’t have celiac disease, this hamburger soup is the perfect treat to warm yourself up, especially if you’ve been enduring the snowstorms! So without further ado, here is the delicious recipe for you all to enjoy!
Hamburger SoupPrint Recipe
- 2½ pounds of ground chuck
- 1 whole large onion, diced
- 2 stalks celery, diced
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 pound of baby Bella mushrooms, quartered
- 1 14-ounce can of whole tomatoes
- 5 cups beef stock or beef broth, more as needed
- 4 whole carrots, peeled and sliced on the diagonal
- 5 whole red potatoes, cut into chunks
- 4 tablespoons of tomato paste
- 1 teaspoon of kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, more to taste
- 2 teaspoons of dried parsley flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- In a pot over medium-high heat, cook the beef with the onion, celery, and garlic. Remove the pot and drain off the fat. Set meat mixture aside.
- Prepare the ingredients, add to the pot, and let brown.
- Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in the pot. Add mushrooms and cook until just beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
- Quarter the baby mushrooms and cook.
- Add tomatoes. Use your hands to tear the whole tomatoes into bite-sized pieces.
- Add the drained meat and the rest of the ingredients to the pot. Stir to combine and then bring to a boil. Reduce the heat. Cover the pot and simmer the soup for 15 to 20 more minutes until potatoes are tender. If you allow it to cook for too long, your potatoes will become mushy!
- The soup should be somewhat thick, but you can always add more broth (1 to 2 cups) or hot water to make it more “soupy.” Taste and adjust seasonings by adding more salt, pepper, or cayenne pepper if needed.
