1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 large can beef broth
1 small can diced tomatoes, undrained
3 potatoes cut in chunks
Veggies, fresh, frozen or canned
Seasonings to taste (salt, pepper, fresh or dried herbs)
Put ground beef, onions and celery in pot. Cook until ground beef is browned; drain. Add beef broth and tomatoes. If you need more liquid, you can add water. Add potatoes and fresh vegetables cut into pieces. (If you are using frozen or canned, you can wait to add until potatoes are almost done.) Add seasonings. It's ready when the potatoes are done, or you can simmer longer for a more blended flavor.
Again, you really can't make any mistakes on this soup. Add as much or as little of the ingredients as you want. Try adding barley, rice or noodles instead of potatoes, be creative!
