Slow cooker hamburger soup is a hearty, warm, comforting bowl of kid-friendly food. It cooks up easily in a slow cooker, making it an easy weeknight meal.
Hamburger Soup is a thick and hearty meal to warm you up. Bonus, kids love it (adults do too). It has the beefy body of a chili, with an entirely different spice flavor profile. This is something that you can spend five minutes prepping in the morning, then let stew in the slow cooker all day long for a no fuss dinner. Yeah, you're gonna like this one.
You can also make Hamburger Soup with Rice or Pasta
If you are looking to stretch this soup out a little farther, or just like the idea of it, you can add a little grain to the mix. One of my first testers thought that this soup would be great with a little orzo or other small pasta mixed in. It could even go well with some larger pasta, though then I feel that you are treating it more like a sauce, and less like a soup.
Personally, I think that if you are going to add some starch to the soup, rice would be a great way to go. Similar to pouring chili over rice, but with a distinctly hamburger soup flavor. Let me know in the comments if you try any of these variations out, and how they go!
True Story, I love burgers, so much so, that I own and manage Burger Month. This Hamburger Soup is an outside the bun favorite, but if you're looking for the absolute best burger game around, I think you've found it. Try these babies out on your grill!
