  1. Combine potatoes, carrots, onion, celery, garlic, parsley, basil, bouillon, salt, and pepper in a large soup pot. Fill pot with enough water to cover ingredients. Cover and boil until all ingredients begin to soften, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat so you do not burn your hands.
  2. Crumble in uncooked ground beef, a little at a time, stirring to mix a few times. Return to heat and bring back to a boil. Simmer on low to medium heat until all vegetables are cooked through and meat is no longer pink, 15 to 20 minutes.
