This Crock pot Hamburger Soup is probably my favorite soup to make in a slow cooker! It’s so easy that everyone in the family can make it, from the kids to adults! ( I suggest the kids make it though, it’s a great cooking learning experience!)

For a stovetop version, here is one for hamburger soup or go here for an Instant Pot version.

Hamburger Soup in the Crock Pot is winner winner soup for dinner!

Hamburger soup is probably one of the most requested soups in households today. This soup has been made for decades upon decades now and is a staple for many families. It helps Mom and Dad get a hearty, healthy dinner on the table fast! And we all know that we need fast recipes during our busy week. This recipe is large enough that you will have leftovers for everyone’s lunches the next day which is always a really important deciding factor in what I make for dinner during the week. You get supper AND lunch, which is perfect.

Wait, Did You Say Hamburger Soup is Healthy?

First of all, lean ground beef that is cooked and then has the fat drained and rinsed off is chock full of protein and iron! Don’t discount a meal as being healthy just because it has ground beef! Rinsing the extra fat away is a trick that my friend’s mom taught me in high school when she was on Weight Watchers. You would be shocked at how many calories and fat you rinse down the drain! Then you look at all the healthy vegetables and you have a solid meal.

As a result, you can use ground beef almost guilt-free!

Tips and Tricks

  • Use lean ground beef and like I mention if you are worried about the fat simply rinse it off with hot water. Works like a charm!
  • Ground turkey will also work in this recipe and then you have turkey hamburger soup! Just as good!
  • To save yourself time, use the mixed frozen vegetables mix. It’s fast and easy!

Enjoy and happy cooking!

    This is a great soup if you are taking chemo, put in a can of beans to up the protein level, not to heavy when appetite is not the best,
