Hamburger Soup

Stovetop - 60 minutes. Serves 8


1 lb ground beef
5 cups water
1 bay leaf
16 oz cut tomatoes
2 medium onions, chopped
2 medium carrots, sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1/3 cup pearl barley or rice
1/4 cup catsup
1 TBSP instant beef bullion granules
2 tsp seasoned salt
pepper to taste
1 tsp basil


Brown beef and onion in a Dutch oven, drain well. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce and simmer covered for 1 hour until veggies are tender.


Optional ingredients are what you have on hand and feel like:
Fresh or canned corn
potatoes cut small
green beans
anything you have floating around the fridge you want to get rid of.

This soup freezes well and also can be done in the slow cooker after you brown the meat and onions.

Easily doubled.
