Hamburger Soup

This simple, basic soup, is so delicious, that I've made it
twice within one week. Mimi in Maine had posted the
recipe at food.com, but I did modify the recipe to our liking.

Hamburger Soup

1 lb. ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1-1/4 cups diced carrots
1/2 to 2/3 cup thinly sliced celery
1/2 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoning Salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 large cloves garlic, minced

5 cups water
1/4 cup catsup
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn kernels
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
6 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
1/3 cup 'quick cooking' medium pearled barley

In a large stock-pot, lightly brown the ground beef. 

Do not drain off the grease, as I use that to sauté
the vegetables in.

Add the onion, carrots, and celery to the stockpot. 

Season the vegetables with the salt and pepper,
and sauté the vegetables for 5 minutes.

Add the minced garlic, and continue sautéing for 2

more minutes.

Add the remaining ingredients, and bring soup to a boil. 

Then reduce the heat, and simmer the soup covered for
55 minutes.

Ladle soup into bowls, and serve.

Servings: 5

Must be the season...I just made my Mom's recipe for this which is very close to this. We add cabbage too. Great on cold nights!
