Hobo Ground Beef and Vegetable Soup

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars
1

"Here's an old-time hamburger and mixed vegetable soup, made the way Grandma made it...if Grandma had a slow cooker. If you can't go home and check on it on a week day be sure to added extra broth at the beginning. A large bag of frozen mixed vegetables can be used in place of the canned vegetables."

The only thing I did different was that I cooked the hamburger first before putting it in. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a T and it came out great! Thanks so much for the recipe!

Made this for my hunters. They loved it. Made no changes. They even begged for more!!!!

Very easy to make and turned out delicious!!

A good recipie that I will make again. I hand no ground sirloin but I did have chunks of stew meat and some frozen meatballs. It turned out just fine.

So easy and so good !!!
