HAMBURGER CROCK POT SOUP
This Hamburger Crock Pot Soup is so good, and it’s so easy. You put it all in the Crock Pot, run errands, or chores around the house, and when it’s dinner time, you’re all set. The flavors are so delicious together, and you can serve this with your favorite crackers, crusty bread, or corn muffins, and you’ve got a wonderful healthy meal everyone will love. Make sure you keep this one in your favorites.
Here’s what you need:
1 pound of Ground Sirloin – cooked and crumbled
- 1 large yellow Onion – chopped
- 4 large white Potatoes – peeled and diced
- 4 large Carrots – peeled and sliced
- 1 Tablespoon of Minced Garlic
4 cups of Chicken Broth
- 1 small can of Tomato Paste – 6 to 8 ounces (I used the can with Basil, Garlic and Oregano)
2 Tablespoons of Lipton Onion Soup Mix
- 1 Tablespoon of Italian Seasoning
- Garlic Salt – to taste
- Seasoned Salt – to taste
- Seasoned Pepper – to taste
- 2 Tablespoons of Brown Sugar
1/2 package of Frozen Peas – see instructions for adding
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:
In a large heavy bottom skillet, brown the Ground Sirloin until it’s done, and no pink is visible. Sprinkle the Sirloin with Garlic Salt, and Seasoned Pepper, stir well, and add to the Crock Pot. Chop the Onion, and add to the Crock Pot. Peel the Potatoes and Carrots. Dice the Potatoes, and slice the Carrots, and add to the Crock Pot. Add the Minced Garlic, and Chicken Broth, and Stir well. Add the can of Tomato Paste, Soup Mix, and Italian Seasoning, and add Water to cover about 3 inches over the ingredients. Stir well to blend together, and add Garlic Salt, Seasoned Salt, and Seasoned Pepper to taste. Add Brown Sugar, and stir. Place the lid on the Crock Pot, and leave on high setting for 6 hours, stirring occasionally. About 45 minutes before you’re ready to serve the Soup, add the frozen Peas, and stir well. Adding the Peas at the very end of cooking will help them to maintain their green color. If you are not ready to serve the Soup at the 6 hour mark, turn the Crock Pot on low, and add more Water if needed. Serve with your favorite crackers or breads. Enjoy!
Makes 4 to 6 large bowls of Soup
