This recipe for Ground Beef Noodle Soup is quick and easy to make and perfect when you're craving hearty comfort food without a lot of work.
This is a quick and easy way to make the classic beef noodle soup. You could probably call it hamburger soup, since it's made with ground beef, or you could call it vegetable beef soup if you want to add more veggies. Whatever you call it, it's perfect when you're craving a big bowl of comfort food without a ton of work!
Growing up, we used to have made-from-scratch beef soup every now and then. Usually, we had chicken soup, especially if someone wasn't feeling well, so beef soup was definitely a treat. Actually, we probably ate canned soup more often than anything, especially for lunch, so anything homemade was always a treat!
To save time, my grandma would make beef soup using hamburger meat, and honestly, this was one of my favorites. I mean, what kid doesn't like hamburgers?! And this, my friends, is the soup recipe we're talking about today!
I updated the original recipe to add organic low sodium beef broth instead of beef bouillon, and I also added a little bit of chopped garlic. And to make it even easier, I chopped up a couple of baby carrots instead of peeling and chopping the regular kind. Other than that, it's pretty much the same as I remember, which is pretty darn good. Because soup is good food, right?!
Even my picky eaters thought this ground beef noodle soup was delicious. Well, the pickiest eater had some issues, but that's because she doesn't really like any soup at all. She even tried to cover her bowl with a napkin to hide the broth after picking out the meat and noodles! But the rest of the family loved it, and even the Hubs had seconds!

How can I modify this for a slow cooker?
I haven't used the slow cooker for hamburger soup, but I would brown the meat first and then add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker. I'm guessing it would be about 4 hours or so on low or whenever the veggies are done.
Second time making this soup... absolutely love it....
So glad to hear this, Dottie. Thanks!
