Recipe - Ground Beef Hash Soup

As my time at Duke comes to a close, I realize that I have quite a bit of food that must be consumed before I leave the apartment. This leads to quite a bit of scrambling to cook a lot and often. I needed to do something with the beef broth I had so after some searching on Supercook, I put together a delectable combination that my roommate likened to the base of shepherd's pie. I'm not sure if it was quite there but it was certainly filling nevertheless.

Step 1: Ingredients (serving size: 3-4 bowls)

  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup carrots, baby or diced
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 can beef broth, 14 oz.
  • 1.5 lbs. red potatoes, diced
  • 2 tbsps Worchestershire sauce

Step 2: Cooking the ingredients
Cook your ground beef in a saucepan and season appropriately with your salt and pepper. Mix in the potatoes and carrots. Let the vegetables soften a little bit from the heat.

Step 3: Adding the broth
Pour in your beef broth and all remaining ingredients except for the cornstarch. Stir over medium heat. Cook for about 10 minutes and make sure that the broth is to taste. Mix your cornstarch with some water and pour into the mix. This will thicken the soup.

Step 4: Completing the soup
Lower the heat a little and let the soup simmer. You want the potatoes to get soft yet still hold their shape. When they can be broken apart with a little bit of pressure, take your dish off the heat and serve!
