So good! It's a long time favorite. A must when the weather turns cold. We serve this with a big slice of pumpernickle bread.

II feel bad I can't rate this a 5, but had a problem with the soup. Even though I didn't use the boullion I had to doctor it up because we thought it was too salty. I added 2 diced potatoes to absorb some of the salt and some more canned tomatoes. I also used 3 carrots instead of the 1C, just because we like them. After that, I thought the soup was good so almost didn't make the roux. I'm so glad I did. The soup was so much richer, plus it cut down on the saltiness a bit. I will definitely make this again as written, adding extra carrots and a diced potato, but will use low-sodium beef broth next time. Because the addition of Italian seasoning, worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce plus the roux this made this a step above other hamburger soups I've made..

Really Good !!!!! Im one who sees a recipe on here and tweek it, but I followed the recipe to the tee, almost. I added some leftover cabbage, quartered some baby bellas, and added a can of shoepeg corn. I also added a cup of cooked rice. But I didnt change the base of the soup any ! It has been rainging here all day and this just hit the spot!

MizzNezz this was Delicious! We really enjoyed the broth. I did alter it a bit though to save time, just too busy today...Used browned ground beef that I had saved in the freezer for moments like this, used 2 cans of mixed veggies(drained) and was 1 can short of beef broth so added vegetable broth, I sub'd dehydrated onion for the fresh and added that and pre-minced garlic directly to the soup mixture. Garnished with shredded Parmesan. Great recipe! December 03, 2005
