Try some Hamburger Soup!

I grew up with this soup. It reminds me of loud family conversations, my brothers play fighting in the kitchen, doing math at the kitchen table, and thick slices of french bread slathered in creamy butter! This soup is the epitome of comfort food. I'm sure many of you have a version of this soup stashed away in some old recipe book. This is my version.

Chop all your veggies into bite size pieces.

Saute them in some olive oil

Add ground beef and seasonings

Brown the meat

 Add your diced tomatoes, beef broth, water and bay leaves and bring to a boil. Let simmer for two hours

After the two hours, add your barley and simmer for another hour

 Serve and enjoy with some nice fresh bread slathered in butter!

So what do you think? Are you going to try this? If so here is the recipe!

Oops silly me!, In the recipe I said to add onion powder to the ground beef, I meant, add garlic powder.  ;)


  1. We love soups and this one looks so good (although I'll use ground turkey instead of the beef). Thank you!

  2. ooh that sounds like a good idea! I will have to try that sometime!
