Crock-Pot Hamburger Soup Tips
Can I put frozen hamburger in the Crock-Pot?Starting with frozen meat in a slow cooker is not the safest way to go. The low and slow temperatures give bacteria more opportunity to grow. If frozen is all you have, take a few minutes to thaw it in the microwave before adding to the slow cooker.
How long does hamburger soup last in the fridge?3-4 days. Cooling your soup quickly will help it last longer, so divide it into smaller containers (also easy to grab and go, bonus!) before putting in the fridge.
Can you freeze hamburger soup?This recipe will freeze just fine. Just make sure to slowly reheat on the stovetop to prevent the cream from curdling.

I used ground turkey as I currently don't eat red meat. I cannot eat corn due to abdominal surgery, so instead of using frozen mixed vegetables, I used a frozen mix of cauliflower, broccoli and carrots. It turned out great, especially after freezing it in smaller portions and pulling out of the freezer as needed.

I used reduced sodium V8 to drop the sodium level a bit and also added an extra teaspoon of the dried minced onion. This soup is one of the easiest recipes I've made in years and it's very tasty. I did cook it on low for the four hour period and found that it simmered through just fine. I always keep a few packages of cooked ground beef in one-pound amounts in our freezer and now I also keep a couple of packages of frozen mixed vegetables on hand along with an extra bottle of V8 so that I can throw together a delicious meal with almost no effort. A healthy soup that tastes great: win-win!

I usually cook soups and freeze 2/3 of it to eat later. This soup was soooo good I ate it all week 'til it was gone :-)

I’m getting hungry as I read the ingredient list plus it’s a chilly day. I’m going to make this for the weekend.

Wonderful recipe! But, I chopped an onion and fried it with 2 lbs. ground beef. Also, added garlic powder and a splash of vinegar to the soup.

I used this recipe as an inspiration to make a soup with what I had on hand. I browned and drained one pound plus of ground beef, sliced up a can of small white potatoes, cut one canful of green beans into one-inch pieces, combined one can of beef broth, one can of cheese soup, half a small can of tomato sauce, stirred in my favorite seasonings to taste (celery salt, thyme, Mrs. Dash Table Blend, black pepper, a hint of garlic, McCormick Season All, a whiff of chili powder, and a dash of Kitchen Bouquet - use YOUR favorites) and added it to the stockpot and heated it on the stovetop. I'll play around with this recipe in the future. I think there are a lot of possibilities here!.
