This easy-to-make potato hamburger soup has a rich beef flavor. Besides its simplicity, this recipe is versatile. You can add as many other vegetables as you like to complement the onion and potato. In less than 30 minutes, you can create a delicious and warm potato hamburger soup.

Step 1

In a large stockpot, heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat.

Step 2

When the butter melts and starts to sizzle, add the onions and ground beef. Stirring constantly, cook the onions and hamburger until the meat is browned and the onions have softened.

Step 3

Add the potatoes to the pot. Pour enough water into the pot just until the meat, onion and potatoes are covered.

Step 4

Turn the heat up to high and cook until the water starts to boil. Reduce the heat to low and cover the pot. Simmer over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, until the potatoes are completely cooked through.

Step 5

Remove the lid and add the beef bouillon cubes. Stir constantly until the cubes completely dissolve and the soup liquid is smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
