Hamburger Potato Soup - The Southern Lady Cooks

This hamburger potato soup can be made on top of the stove or in the crock pot.  It is a recipe my family loves and the spinach and cheese just makes this dish.  Make this on a cold day or make it anytime with some of my Southern cornbread hoecakes for a warm comfort food meal.  This soup is very versatile as you can add whatever you have on hand and make it your own.  Green beans, okra and celery could also be added to this great soup.  It keeps well for several days and the recipe could actually be cut in half or doubled.  I have not tried freezing this soup but see no reason why it could not be frozen.

Hamburger potato soup will easily become a favorite.

1 pound ground beef

1 cup chopped green onion or 1 medium onion

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1 cup chopped or sliced carrots

1/2 cup frozen corn

1 cup chopped fresh spinach

2 (14.5 ounce) cans beef broth

3 to 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut up

1/2 cup water

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons dried basil

3 teaspoons dried parsley flakes

1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 cup milk

2 teaspoons cornstarch (optional, used to thicken soup only)

Brown the hamburger, onions and minced garlic in a skillet on top of the stove. Remove, drain and put in soup pot or crock pot.  Add remaining ingredients to soup pot or crock pot and if cooking on top of the stove, cook until potatoes and carrots are soft.  Cook in crock pot for 6 hours on low or 4 hours on high.  If you want the soup thicker, whisk the cornstarch into the milk before adding to pot. Garnish with shredded cheddar cheese.

Makes about 8 servings.  Enjoy!

  1. I made this soup for the third time yesterday!! I cook it in the crockpot. This time I used half ground beef and half sweet Italian sausage,,,,,,,yummm
    Used potatoes, carrots, onions from the garden, frozen corn kernels, and fresh spinach. We enjoy it with a salad……..5 stars

  2. Hi, I tried this last night and my husband really loved it. I did reduce the parsley to 2 tsp and since I was out of milk—-I used half evaporated milk and half water (courtesy of the Internet!)

    Oh I left out the spinach; he doesn’t like it in soup

    I whisked the milk and cornstarch separately and added it when the potatoes were just about done. I also made this on the stove top. I added more cornstarch to try to thicken it a bit more.

    Thank you so much for sharing it!5 stars

      So glad you enjoyed it!

      • I just wanted to expand on my comment:

        My husband said it was one of the best soups. That surprised me only because I had once showed him a different recipe for a cheeseburger-like soup and he either turned it down or one of us wasn’t sure he would like it. So I showed this to him on a whim.

        We almost did not make it because of the spinach (he doesn’t like that in soup) until I informed him that I could leave it out.

        The beef vegetable soup I made and reviewed also got high praise. Since it made so much we took some to a neighbor who also let me know how much he liked it.

        Both were a blessing to me personally since they are affordable, make a good amount (I can give some away) or I can freeze them.

        I made it clear that these were not my recipes, but yours. I played a bit with them but you created them.

        I have a few of your crock pot recipes to try plus one more soup recipe. Am sure they will be a hit.5 stars

        How wonderful! I’m just so glad you are having such success with our recipes! Thank you so much for the kind comment.

  3. Wonder if you could use kale in place of the spinach? Not a fan of spinach.

  4. I’ve found that when you freeze potatoes they get spongy!. I make soup & leave the potatoes out, freeze ,then when you’re ready to eat just boil your potatoes & add to your soup!
