Mother Freakin' Hamburger Soup That Doesn't Suck

If you love soup that doesn t suck, this is for you!

Ingredients

  1. 1 lb ground beef
  2. 1 packet onion soup mix
  3. 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  4. 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  5. 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  6. 1/4 teaspoon basil
  7. 1 onion finely chopped
  8. 1 cup celery chopped
  9. 1 cup carrots chopped
  10. 8 oz can tomato sauce
  11. 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  12. Beef broth or water and beef bullion
  13. 1 cup macaroni noodles (or whatever pasta you prefer no one is here to judge)
  14. Parmesan cheese

Method

  1. Put meat in slow cooker I like to brown the meat first so it is already separated and the grease content is low
  2. Add onion soup mix pepper seasoned salt oregano basil onion celery carrots tomato sauce and soy sauce to the slow cooker
  3. Change Add as much beef broth as you like Or if you are like me and prefer to add water and bullion cubes make sure you add one cube per 1 – 1 1/2 cups of water The amount of broth depends on what you like Because the pasta (see below step) absorbs so much I would say to put at least 5 or 6 cups of broth in If you dont like a lot of broth put in less There is no legal statute dictating how much to put in Gotta love America
  4. Cook for no less than 4 hours to get the flavors to swirl around Plus dont you love the intoxicating aroma of soup filling the halls of your house Any longer than 8 hours even on low setting can dry the meat out especially if you substitute with ground turkey
  5. 15 to 20 minutes prior to serving add the macaroni I like the whole wheat kind It gives me the illusion that I am somehow being healthier If you like science watch the broth levels lower while the mass of the noodles increase
  6. Serve with parmesan cheese on top It gives the soup that extra something special
  7. Photos are forthcoming once I make this again DISCLAIMER: if you like soup that sucks this one is not for you If you like soup that doesnt suck then you my friend are in for a treat!
