Recipe: Crock Pot Burger Soup

Mike picked on me for posting a recipe last week, but I’m going to do it again anyway *grin*

As another companion to my Ladies of Loserville post, I’m sharing my Burger Soup recipe. Like the Chicken Ole’, this one can be done in the crock pot or in a frying pan. I’ll include directions for both.

I have to say that Mike and I *love* this recipe. I make it at least once a week. You can use rice or pasta for either version…but the best way – in my opinion – is to use the rice in the crock pot version and pasta in the frying pan version. If I calculated correctly, one serving is 6 points. If you don’t add the cheese, it’s only 4 points.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. basil
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup
  • 3 Cups beef broth + water – boiling. (I use 1 can and then fill the rest with water, then pop into the microwave for 3 minutes)
  • 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 C. sliced carrots
  • 1 C. cooked rice OR pasta (cooked and drained if in crock pot, dry if in frying pan – I use the curly, hollow pasta, Cellentani)
  • 1/4 C. grated Parmesan cheese

Crock Pot Instructions:

  1. Crumble beef into crock pot.
  2. Add spices.
  3. Mix in water, tomato sauce, and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Add carrots.
  5. Cover and cook on low 6 – 8 hours.
  6. Turn to high heat and add rice or pasta and Parmesan cheese.
  7. Cover and cook 10 – 15 minutes.

Frying Pan Instructions:

  1. Brown and drain the beef.
  2. Add everything else.
  3. Cover and cook for 20 minutes.

  1. so, what’s wrong with sharing recipes? I love the idea and love getting to see how my friends eat.

    This recipe sounds like something the kids would definitely eat 🙂

  2. Oh, now that’s intriguing!

  3. Maybe for diet reasons, but why not potatoes instead of rice or pasta?! I’m surprised at you Nancy! 🙂

  4. Keep bringing on the crock pot recipes.
    I love it.
