A very good and hearty soup that is very popular in the cold northern new york winters. I learned how to make this soup after customers requested it and seemed that I could never make enough!

I made this for lunch today. To me this wasn't really a soup, it was very thick. I followed the recipe exactly as written. I thought it needed a lot more liquid. I did add another cup of water but still thought it was more like a pasta dish then a soup. We liked it but thought it had a bit too much garlic. I ate mine topped with parmesan cheese.

I am just leaving a comment for now!

Sounds real good, but my first thought was chorizo insted of ground beef...

Will rate again when I try it both ways!

(Edit 07.13.12 ) Made both ways, chorizo is best!
