Easy Delicious Beef Soup

I buy Ground Beef in bulk because it’s so much less expensive.  So I’m always creating deelish ways to serve it up to my fam.

 Life can be so exhausting and our people are counting on us to serve a great meal…we need easy!  I’ve been making this soup for over 20 years, a girlfriend gave it to me after I raved and raved about the delicious flavor of this simple soup.   You’ve got to try it!

Didn’t I say it would be easy???!!

Cooking tips:

~ This makes a VERY large batch of soup.  You can cut in half for smaller batches OR of course you can make the whole batch and freeze!

~ If you would like a more expensive cut of meat, you can use Sirloin Tip or London Broil. Cut up and brown just like you did with the Ground Beef.
