How to Prepare Hamburger Soup:

  1. Veggie Sauté: In a 5 1/2 qt Dutch oven or soup pot, heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Add in the finely diced onion, thinly sliced carrots, and celery, cooking until the vegetables are softened.
  2. Brown the Beef: To the softened vegetables, crumble in 1 1/2 lb of lean ground beef. Cook until the beef turns a rich golden brown, ensuring to break it apart as it cooks for even browning.
  3. Soup Assembly: Stir in 28 oz of canned diced tomatoes, 3 cloves of minced garlic, 2 Tbsp of tomato paste, the chopped potatoes, and 8 cups of beef broth into the pot. Season with 1 tsp of Italian seasoning, 1 1/2 tsp of salt, and 1/4 tsp of ground black pepper.
  4. Simmer to Perfection: Bring the mixture to a boil, then lower the heat and let it simmer for 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender to your liking. Adjust the seasoning as necessary and serve the soup warm, garnished with fresh chopped parsley.
