Hamburger Soup

I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes with you today! It’s so easy and my kids gobble it up, and ask for seconds. I love to make a big batch and take it to friends who need a little help with meals, or just need a pick-me up.


Hamburger Soup


  • 1 Tbls Olive Oil
  • 1/2 a med sized onion, chopped
  • 2 Tbls minced garlic
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 can condensed tomato soup, plus 1 can water
  • 2-14 oz. cans beef broth
  • 1 cup of corn or other canned/frozen veggies
  • 1 cup uncooked small pasta


  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet.
  2. Add onion and garlic and stir until the onions are just soft.
  3. Add ground beef, season with salt and pepper and cook until meat is longer pink. Drain.
  4. Meanwhile, in a five quart soup pot, pour in beef broth, tomato soup and water. Bring to a boil, turn down heat to medium and add the ground beef and corn.
  5. Add the pasta and veggies and cook pasta to al dente.

This is one of my favorite recipes because not only is it simple, but even my pickiest eaters (that would be all of them) will eat it! It’s great fresh out of the pot, as leftovers two days later, and it also freezes well.

I usually serve this soup with a nice green salad on the side. You can also add more veggies to the pot if you wish. I don’t because I want my kids to eat it!

    Found the recipe on pinterest and I am tying it tonight! Hoping my kids eat it. They are terribly picky sometimes. But this looks too yummy to skip over. I am going to toss in more veggies to try to make a heartier soup.

    Made this tonight and it was sooooo good. Especially with some cornbread and a little hot sauce. Will definitely make it again. Thanks!!

    I too found this on Pinterest and my family loves it. Its definitely one that is in our monthly meal rotation. I like how simple and quick it is to throw together, especially with our busy schedules during the week. I too love to throw in some extra vegetables to make it more healthier. Thanks for sharing!

    Was very good and flavorful!! I also found on pinterest. Used fiori pasta and told my daughter it was flower soup. We all enjoyed this!

    Thanks for the recipe! Making it today. Just to clarify…is the pasta cooked or uncooked when you add it to the soup? It says cooked in the ingredients, but then says to add and cook until al dente.
    Thanks so much!

    We made this soup tonight, and it was delicious! I found it on Pinterest and loved how quick and simple it was, yet so warm and good! Both of my kids (1 and 3) loved it, and they’re picky-eaters, too! Thanks for sharing!

    And to the commenter above me…it makes a lot!

    I made this tonight and it was WONDERFUL! What a great comfort food. I added some more vegetables, cut up celery, carrots, and put a can of green beans because there was not any nice fresh ones at the supermarket.
    This is definitely a keeper! Thank you so much for sharing :-)

    I’ve made this one for years, except we always added a couple can’s of mixed vegetables or frozen mixed veggies to it, and served it with Beer bread. If you need it more juicy, just add tomatoe juice. My experience has been that if you keep the pasta seperate & add it to the individual bowls at serving time, that it freezes better, it doesn’t get a mushy when it’s thawed again.

    I made this delish soup last night….wow, simple but sooooo tasty….great comfort food. I always have pre-cooked ground chuck in foodsaver bags in the freezer so it was a cinch to make. I cooked the wagon wheel pasta right in the soup/broth so that saved a step as well. I sent some in my daughter’s school lunch today and the serving that’s left has my name on it for lunch today! :-) Glad I found the recipe!

    I made this soup for dinner last week, for my family of 5 + my mom. It was absolutely delicious. There was none left in the pot! I added a can of green beans. The “soup” had a wonderful flavor!

    I made this to take on a camping trip (in a camper, I don’t tent rough it, lol). It’s really good. I made a couple of modifications. I had some tomato juice in the fridge that I was wanting to use up before we left, so I used it in place of the can of tomato soup. Also, because Hubby & I like spicy foods, I added in a can of Rotel tomatoes, and sprinkled in some cajun seasoning. Along with a pan of cornbread, it makes a hearty meal to eat out by the fire on a chilly night. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Not much of a cook here. When it says 1 can of tomato soup, do I use a 10 oz can or a larger size can? Thanks!
