Hamburger -Vegetable Soup

With a few cans of soup, some fresh vegetables, and a bit of ground beef, this made for one heck of a hearty soup!

Hamburger-Vegetable Soup

3/4 lb. ground beef
1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 small to medium sized onion, chopped
1 cup (cut-up) russet potatoes, cut into 1/2" cubes
About 1-1/2 cups thinly sliced baby carrots
salt & pepper, add according to taste
2 soup cans of water
1 (10.75 oz.) can condensed tomato soup
1 (11.25 oz.) can condensed bean with bacon soup
1 (10.5 oz.) can condensed vegetable soup with beef stock

In a skillet, brown the ground. While the meat is browning,

season it with a bit of salt and pepper. (If need be, add a bit 
of vegetable oil to cook the meat.) Drain off any excess grease,
and set meat aside.

In a large stock pot over medium-low heat,
add 1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.

To the pot, add the onion, carrots, and the potatoes.
Season the vegetables with a bit of salt and pepper.
Sauté the vegetables for about 6 minutes.

Add the cooked beef, canned soups and water to the pot,
and stir.

Bring soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to a low
simmer, and simmer the soup for 30 minutes.
