Great economical comfort food. I made as directed...only change was to put ingredients into a slow cooker after browning meat and left it to bubble gently for the whole day. I am a "Best of Bridge" Cookbook fan and this did not dissapoint. Thanks!

I grew up in Canada with this soup and as an adult, I make it frequently in the winter. It is so quick and easy to whip up and it is SO comforting on a cold day. Lennie's version is perfect as the original calls for cannes of consumme and I always use beef stock/broth. I do rinse the ground beef before adding to the soup, otherwise, there is a bit of grease on top. This freezes VERY well!!!

Sounds delish. I'll probably use potatoes instead of barley, which I loathe.

This brought me back to my childhood! Had a craving for hamburger soup tonight, but haven't made it so many years so I cheated and looked online lol... Came across your recipe, and so thankful I did!! :) only tweak I made was to add some fresh kidney beans (1 cup)...absolutely divine comfort food at its best, keep up the great recipes!! :)

We love this soup. My Mom made it fwhen I was a kid from the Company's Coming cookbook--that was about 30 years ago! I lost my CC cookbook 2 years ago when we moved so I went searching on Food.com and found it! Thanks for posting. Great fall and winter feast, especially with homemade bread. YUMMMM

This is the best hamburger soup! My mom used to make this when I was a kid, and now I make it for my own kids. Also works well with ground turkey.
