This came from Taste Of Home, Ground Beef Favorites(one of those monthly supermarket magazines). I also added cooked pasta, to make it even more heartier. Our kids really enjoyed this. Because it calls for bouillon cubes I omitted the salt listed, but that was our personal taste.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 4 cups water
- 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 3 medium carrots, pared and sliced
- 2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup celery, chopped
- 4 beef bouillon cubes
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 cup frozen cut green beans
- In a large saucepan, cook ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
- Add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the green beans; bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or just until the potatoes and carrots are tender.
- Add the green beans.
- Cover and simmer 15 more minutes or until the beans are tender.
I've made this recipe many times. The whole family loves it! I let it simmer in the crockpot all day then add the noodles (precooked) just before serving. Thanks so much for sharing such fabulous recipe!
Delicious soup! I put the cooked ground beef along with other ingredients except the green beans into the crockpot in the morning and let it simmer all day. I also added some minced garlic and some red pepper flakes. I added the frozen green beans 30 min. before serving. I also added a cup of cooked pasta right before serving. I will make this often in the cooler months. Thanks!
VERY versatile. I've made this soup a few times now and put in a variety of vegetables (parsnips, turnips, frozen mixed vegetables, canned corn, etc), even added leftover mac and cheese once, and it has turned out great every time.
