Zippy Hamburger Soup

Recipe by NoDramaMama
READY IN: 45mins
SERVES: 10-12
YIELD: 6 quarts


  • 1 - 1 12
    lb ground beef, browned and seasoned to taste (weight after browning- starting with raw, 2 lbs)
  • 1
    (1 1/8 ounce) envelope Lipton beefy onion soup mix
  • 1
    (32 ounce) box low sodium beef broth (taste carefully if using salted stock to keep soup from getting too salty) or (32 ounce) box broth (taste carefully if using salted stock to keep soup from getting too salty)
  • 1
    (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 4
    medium potatoes, washed and diced with skins left on
  • 1
    cup carrot (Chopped, sliced, or diced- I used baby carrots and cut them into thirds)
  • 1
    (14 ounce) can sweet corn (or equivalent of frozen)
  • 1
    (14 ounce) can green beans (or equivalent of frozen)
  • 34
    cup frozen peas
  • 13 - 12
    cup A.1. Original Sauce
  • 34
    teaspoon celery salt


  • Begin with ground beef (either freshly browned/drained/seasoned) or frozen, in soup pot, over medium heat.
  • Add beef stock, onion soup mix, tomatoes (do not drain), Celery Salt, and 1 can of water (use empty tomato can- 28 oz, I guess). Mix well.
  • Add potatoes and carrots and bring to a full simmer, until vegetables are fork tender (about 20 minutes depending on the size you cut them).
  • Add drained beans/corn, and frozen peas.
  • Add steak sauce at the end, allowing to cook just about 5 minutes to bring things together.
  • This could easily be a crockpot recipe by putting the ground beef, onion soup, broth, tomatoes, potatoes and carrots on in the morning, and finishing by adding the other vegetables and A1 at the end.
