Hamburger Soup

My grandmother was an avid canner.  Her pantry was always full of bottles or yummy goodness.  After I was married and would come to visit she would send me down there to get whatever I wanted.  I was a beautiful sight,  Each fall one of the things she canned was soup.  It was awesome, because you just needed what ever meat you wanted to put in it and then you dumped the jar in a pan added the meat and heated and voila...a quick, easy and delicious meal.  I came home the other night really wishing I had one of those bottles of soup.   I had been craving it for a few days and I guess I just needed some comfort food.  So I made my own.  It actually did not take very long.  It  turned out delicious and hit the spot!!  Brought back some great memories too!!
Hamburger Soup
adapted from Taste of Home
1 pound hamburger, cooked and drained
4 cups of water
1 (14 1/2 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 cup carrots, sliced
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed into bite sized pieces
3/4 cup diced onions
1 cup diced celery
4 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions:
Place all ingredient in a large saucepan.  Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until the carrots and potatoes are tender.
I sprinkled each serving with a little bit of shredded Parmesan cheese.
Pure comfort food for a chilly fall night!
Enjoy!

  2. I don't think hamburger soup gets the spotlight, and it should.
