My first introduction to hamburger soup was while having a game night with some friends.

My good friend got the recipe from her sister, who is the wife of a farmer and makes it each year when they have their bull sale. Hearty and filling, she makes a substantial amount that satisfies the hungry crowd.

As I had never tried it before, I was excited to see how it tasted. Besides a person who loves a new recipe, I’m always looking for something the kids will enjoy and isn’t our norm.

In short, the hamburger soup tasted phenomenal! The kids had two bowls a piece and raved about the flavor; a compliment to the cook. Well, that was it, the very next week the kids requested I make it again and the rest is history.

So, here it is, the popular…
