My friend Meagan's Grandma Mifflin made Hamburger Soup for us almost 10 years ago. I've thought of it often over the years because it was SO GOOD!!
I had been helping Meagan move all that day so I wasn't sure if the soup was really THAT good or if I was just REALLY hungry. I had always wanted the recipe but I had assumed it was just a thrown-together-Grandma-type-of-soup. Well...what do you know...there is a recipe! You have to try this soup. It's so good!!
Trying to be all like Shining Egg with this picture but I don't think it looks the same.

Grandma Mifflin’s Hamburger Soup
2 tbsp. butter
1-2 medium onions, chopped
1 close garlic, minced
2-3 lbs. ground beef
3 cans beef broth
1 med. Can tomato sauce
1 large can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 can French style green beans
1 tbsp parsley
½ tsp. basil
salt & pepper to taste
1 16 oz pkg frozen veggie’s
I put in a handful or 2 of frozen chopped okra
In large pot, melt butter, sauté onion and garlic. Add the beef (which I cook in the microwave to cut down on grease). Add all ingredients to beef. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cook until veggies are done. Season to taste.
