Hearty Hamburger Soup

At family get-togethers, Grandma always made this spirit-warming soup along with a fresh loaf of home made bread and tall glasses of milk. It has robust flavor, plenty of fresh-tasting vegetables and is easy to make.

·         1 pound ground beef
·         4 cups water
·         1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, untrained
·         3 medium carrots, sliced
·         2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
·         1 medium onion, chopped
·         1/2 cup chopped celery
·         4 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
·         1-1/2 teaspoons salt
·         1/4 teaspoon pepper
·         1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
·         1 cup cut fresh or frozen green beans
1.       In a large saucepan, brown beef; drain. Add the next 10 ingredients; bring to a boil.
2.       Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender. Add beans. Cover and simmer 15 minutes longer or until the beans are tender. Yield: 8 servings (2 quarts).
Happy Cooking
