Sophia’s Ground Beef and Rice Soup

28 Jun

I have been making different combinations with ground beef lately, but my youngest really wanted a soup with ground beef and rice. I will admit, I was a little stumped at first with how to proceed, so I asked some friends and got some great ideas. In the end, what she really wanted was a soup similar to Chicken & Rice Soup, so that’s the route I went. It turned out really good, and she was happy to eat it!

Sophia’s Ground Beef and Rice Soup

What you need:

1 pound 93/7 lean ground beef
1 small red onion, diced
1 medium carrot, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
6 cups beef broth
2 cups cooked rice

How to make it:

In a large pot, brown ground beef over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, and celery, and cook for a few minutes until vegetables have softened. Add Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, thyme, and marjoram; mix in well. Cook for a few more minutes.

Pour in the beef broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low to simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir in cooked rice. Cook for another 5-10 minutes, making sure the vegetables have softened.
