I think that even beginner cooks would know to transfer the browned hamburger to a soup pot and add the remaining ingredients and continue cooking as directed. I found it to be very easy, quick...

this recipe looks like chunks of beef yet the recipe call for ground beef. Which is it. Thanks..

We really enjoyed this meal. I did add another can of diced tomatoes as it is our favorite veggie. :)

I thought this was pretty good, but I personally didn't like the strong Italian herb flavors. I would cut down on parsley and basil in the future. I also would have hoped for more of a beef flav...

I could not find pearl barley at my grocery store, so I used lentils instead. I don't think they gave the soup enough bulk or texture. Tossing in croutons at serving time seemed to do the trick....

It was excellent! I doubled it & added a can of black beans, instead of frozen veggies I added 4 chopped carrots 5 chopped cellery stalks & a bag of thawed chopped spinach

made it, today.. pretty much gone. made no changes.. wonderful
