I got this recipe for making Hamburger Soup from Helen in the early 80's. It is very flavorful.
1 pound lean hamburger
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 quart tomatoes
2 cups diced carrots
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
2 cups cubed raw potatoes
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup quick barley OR 1/4 cup rice
2 cup beef broth (this can be made with beef-flavored bouillon or soup base)
l quart water
Brown beef and onions until transparent. Drain. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and simmer 1 hour. (I like to put this into my enameled cast iron cookware and put it in a 325-degree oven for an hour, or until vegetables are tender.)

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)
You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.
