For years I've had a great meal-prep habit. I buy ground beef in bulk, and then I cook it all at once with chopped peppers and onions. I freeze portions in zipper freezer bags so that I have them on hand for busy weeknights.
That way, I just have to thaw it overnight in order to make quick beef tacos, a one-pot pasta meal or this yummy hamburger soup. With the meat pre-cooked, this becomes a simple load-the-crockpot-and-walk-away meal, my favorite kind!
Does this hamburger soup recipe have to cook in the crockpot?
This crockpot hamburger soup can also be cooked on the stove top, if you prefer. As long as your beef is pre-cooked, you can add all the ingredients to a large soup pot and simmer for 45-60 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
What vegetables are in this soup?
I use mushrooms, carrots and red potatoes to go along with the onion and peppers that I put in my freezer-bagged ground meat mix. If you're not a fan of these vegetables, put in whatever your family likes. Good options are corn, a can of diced tomatoes, fresh zucchini or green beans.
This recipe is naturally gluten-free, since the main carb is the red potatoes. If you prefer, switch that up to rice or pasta!
