  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 4 carrots, diced
  • 4 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can whole tomatoes, crushed
  • 1 (15 ounce) can peas, undrained
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15 ounce) can green beans, drained and rinsed
  • Ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1 bay leaf, or more to taste
  • 1/4 cup water, as needed


  1. Crumble the ground beef into a stockpot over medium-high heat; cook and stir until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, which should take 7 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  2. Stir in the carrots, celery, and onion into the ground beef; cook and stir until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Add the potatoes, tomato sauce, crushed whole tomatoes, undrained peas, corn, and green beans to the pot; season with black pepper. Stir the mixture until it’s evenly mixed. Add the thyme and bay leaf to the pot. Pour 1/4 cup water over the mixture if needed to moisten the mixture, replenishing as needed while cooking.
  3. Bring the soup to a simmer, place a cover on the pot, and cook, stirring regularly until the potatoes are tender, which should take about 1 hour.

Enjoy your hearty hamburger vegetable soup!
