I have a super yummy recipe today that I CANNOT wait to make again. In fact, it got gobbled up so quickly that we didn't even have leftovers! Now, while we do not eat Hamburger Helper....it is the base of this soup, which scared me at first, but it totally works. I have not tried the recipe NOT using it, so I can't help you out if you are dead set against using it...sorry :( But, if you are looking for a really tasty, kid and man pleasing, super easy, comfort food-type dish, give this one a try!
Roasted Red Potato and Green Bean Beef Soup
Recipe Source: Moogie and Pap
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 1 package Hamburger Helper Beef Pasta
- 5 cups water
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 (16 ounce) can stewed tomatoes (I pureed a bit since I am not big on chunky tomatoes)
- 1 package frozen Birds Eye Roasted Red Potatoes and Green Beans
Cook and stir ground beef and onion in a Dutch oven until beef is brown; drain. Stir in sauce mix from Hamburger Helper package. Add water, bay leaf, salt, pepper and tomatoes. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes. Stir in vegetables and noodles; cover and cook about 10 minutes longer. Serves 5 to 6.
