This recipe for hamburger soup is for a 5-quart crockpot. Serve this tasty dish with biscuits or crusty French bread. Leave the pasta and barley out for a lighter and lower carb soup.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion (chopped)
  • 1 (1 pound) package mixed frozen vegetables (carrots, beans, corn, and peas)
  • 3 ribs celery (chopped, including tops)
  • 1 (14.5 ounces) can beef broth or about 2 cups homemade beef stock
  • 1 green pepper (chopped)
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 (8 ounces) can tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup barley
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano (chopped or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil (chopped or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil)
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme (or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup fresh (chopped parsley or 2 tablespoons dried parsley)
  • 1 (7 ounces) package macaroni

Steps to Make It

  1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet or sauté pan; drain off the fat. You can reduce fat content even further by placing the beef in a colander and running hot water over it.

  2. Put the beef and all ingredients except the pasta into the crockpot. Add water to within an inch or so of the top of the crockpot.

  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours.

  4. About 30 minutes before serving, cook pasta in boiling salted water; add to the crockpot.
