Brown your ground beef in a skillet and drain off any grease. I like to rinse my ground beef to remove even more of the fat.

    It’s in the crock-pot now (I replaced the canned tomatoes with pureed pasta sauce for my picky “no tomato chunk” family).

  2. Jessica M. says

    This is in the crock pot right now! It smells delicious! The only thing I did different, is I omitted the beef base because I am allergic to MSG. I’m having trouble finding one without it. So instead of adding the water, I added 2 cups of Swanson No MSG beef broth. I hope it turns out! I can’t wait to try it!

  3. says

    I want to make your hamburger soup recipe but I have a newer crock pot that seems to cook much more quickly than my old crock pot. I’m worried that if I cook for 8 hours it will be overcooked. Any suggestions on how to adjust the time for the newer pot?

    • Lady Katie says

      I would cook it on low for at least half the time. So 4 hours. But check it at 2. I have a crock-pot that cooks higher than normal too.

      Hi Kristen,

      For this recipe you cook your pasta on the stove-top and just follow the directions on the package. I usually cook mine about 10 minutes or so and just test for when it get to al dente. Then you add the cooked pasta to the soup.

  4. Debra says

    This was so yummy. I made it today but had to add just a little bit more broth in it. I ate until I was about to pop. Great for a Cold day like today.

  5. Brenda says

    I made this soup today and I followed the recipe exactly but for some reason it came out more like a chili then soup. Any suggestions for when I make it again?

    • says

      You may need to add more water to your soup. I would start with 1 or 2 cups of water and stir it around and see if it is more the soup consistency you like. However unless you tried cooking your pasta in the soup it shouldn’t come out thick like chili.

  6. Cheryl Price says

    Just made this soup and is in my crockpot now. I was wondering if 2 cans of tomato paste is too much? I saw the comment from Brenda who said she followed the recipe and it came out more like a chili then soup. I noticed in the picture you don’t have tomato paste or in the first set of directions. The paste is only in the recipe at the end of the blog. I added a little more beef broth to make it more soupy like because mine too was pretty thick. Can’t wait to try it tonight!!!

  7. Melanie says

    I’m getting ready to get this strayed right now but I’m going to omit one can of paste and add some V8. Can’t wait to see how it comes out! I’m also making bread to go with it. I have never tried that before so it should be interesting…

  8. Miss C says

    Making this now! I adjusted and added 1 cup beef broth and 2 cups of water to it, instead of the 2 cups of water. It looked a little thick to start but once the crock pot simmers it for a few, it should be great!

  9. Krys says

    Trying this recipe right now! Smells amazing and the little taste tests I keep doing are so yummy. I also used beef broth instead of water and added a little extra cuz I had a lot of veggies and meat, def looked like it was gonna really thick. Lol! I was wondering if ud think adding in barley would be a good idea? Closer to the end maybe so it doesn’t get to thick? I’m trying it with the noodles tonight first though. Thank you for sharing this recipe!!

  10. Don says

    I cook my ground beef in a little water in the skillet drain it then brown it, just enough grease left for good flavor

  11. Erin says

    This didn’t seem like much of a soup for me (thick!), so I served it over spaghetti. Nevertheless, it was yummy.

    • says

      I am sorry yours came out too thick. Maybe add a little more liquid next time. Soup constancy is a personal preference I think. But I am glad you it still tasted good Erin :0
