Mom and Grandma’s Hamburger Soup

If you click on one of my recommended item links and then place an order through Amazon, I receive a small commission on that sale, at no extra expense to you.

This is a classic go-to recipe for soup in my family. It adapts well to whatever you happen to have on hand. I’ve added green beans, a can of corn, mushrooms, cooked beans, for instance with great results.

Having the right kitchen equipment makes cooking a pleasure. I consider my 30 quart stockpot an essential item. This professional grade large stockpot is one I use often for soup, sauces, canning.
