This is a thick, very good, very satisfying soup. I made the recipe just as posted, except for adding lots of cracked pepper. This was to be a first course for St. Patricks day dinner, but decided to have it on Sat with a big loaf of french bread. Glad we did. It may be too much of a soup to start a meal. This soup IS a meal. Delicious!! Thanks Heather Feather!

We bought a LOT of ground beef as it was on sale! I was looking for something different to do, & this soup was perfect. It was thick & hearty, & as Inez says... it IS a meal! Thanks so much for sharing!

Made this the other day for my niece and nephew who are 6 and 3. I had my doubts about whether they would eat it. They took one look at it and said no thanks, but after trying it they both gobbled it up and said it was good. It wasnt soupy at all but that may have been my fault, but it was still good! I used pasta instead of rice (preference), and tomato soup with some milk instead of cream of tomato. Also used French cut green beans and think I will from now on... Added a little garlic powder and worcestershire sauce and it made a great meal! Thanks! UPDATE: I have made this a few times now and Ive found that its easier to cook the noodles (or rice) separate and just add in as much as you need to the individual servings. That way if there's any leftover it will still taste fresh the next day! P.S.--The kids still love it!! :)

Excellent lunch soup!! Very hearty but healthy too. I didn't have any hamberger on hand so I used ground chicken instead, worked out fine, great taste, added just a tiny bit of hot sauce which gave it a nice zing.I will be making this one again, maybe next time with the hamberger, thanks for sharing.

We really enjoyed this. I doubled the recipe, used 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 spicy Italian sausage and frozen green beans. My rice got thirsty and I needed to add some more water. It was good! Definitely filling, I will probably make it again.

Considering how simple this was to prepare, this was pretty good. I, too, used a can of low sodium tomato soup and 1 cup of milk. I may try using cream of tomato soup next time and 1.5 c beef broth to see if that improves the flavor. Oh, and I left out the rice and served this with cornbread. May, or may not, make this again.

My 9 year old daughter made this soup for dinner. We used 1 lb. of ground beef and a can of cream of mushroom soup for the tomato, because that is all we had. My husband said it was the best soup he had eating in a long time. Very simple to make and yet really tasty. Thank you for positing!

Easy and using thing I almost always have on hand. I substituted beef broth for the water and added about a clove of garlic. Thanks for posting!
