Hamburger Stew

I’m in a weekly blog hop with P.j. MacLayne.  We recently blogged about a meal we could eat every week and P.j.’s is Hamburger Soup.  It sounded so darn good I asked if I could share it.  Enjoy this easy, delicious recipe.

  1. 1 ½ lbs lean ground beef (or substitute ½ lb hot Italian sausage for an extra kick)
  2. 3 stalks celery, chopped
  3. 1 medium onion, chopped
  4. 4 cups shredded cabbage (I buy the pre-shredded cabbage. It cuts down on the preparation time.)
  5. 1 sweet bell pepper, chopped
  6. 1 tbls minced garlic
  7. 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
  8. 4 cups beef stock ( I usually use more)
  9. ½ tsp seasoning salt
  10. ½ tsb basil
  11. ¼ tsp garlic powder
  12. salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a large skillet, brown the beef, onions celery, garlic and pepper until the meat is no longer pink. Add the cabbage and cook together for a couple of minutes. Drain. (I find it easier to add most of the vegetables after draining the fully cooked meat.) Add the seasoning.
  2. Transfer the meat and vegetable mixture to a stock pot, add the beef stock and tomato sauce. Mix. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 30-45 minutes and serve. (I like it with shredded cheese on top.)
  3. I've used both yellow and green peppers at the same time to give it some added color. I also like to add sliced carrots.
  4. Serve with some freshly baked bread and you have a real treat. (Don't make your own bread? Me either. I hit up my favorite grocery store bakery and warm up a loaf for a few minutes before serving.)
  5. This is just as good as leftovers as it is the day you make it, but you may need to add some additional beef stock.

I will not share, sell or rent the email you have given me with anyone. I will never spam you. There is an “unsubscribe” button at the end of all emails I send and clicking on it will remove your email from my mailing list. I do have cookies installed on my site, it’s to help me collect stats about visitors and I get super excited when I see people visiting from all over the world. Lastly, I do use affiliated links which means that I may get advertising fees by advertising and linking to some stores on line (basically, I can receive commissions on some purchases you make when you arrive at some vendors sites after clicking on a link on one of my sites). This doesn’t change anything for you since the price remains the same.
