I have hamburger... I have veges

I want to make a hamburger soup... But...

I have no beef broth...

And i want to put rice in it....

What can I do for a broth?

I have chicken broth, romantic sauce, I think stewed tomatoes too...


Ok... So I kindof went on my own... Lol...

I brought 48oz of chicken broth to boil. I added in 1lb sliced carrots. 1 cup of green beans, corn, and peas. I added 2tsp ground black pepper, a tsp Italian seasoning, and about 20 turns on my sea salt grinder. I also added worchestershere sauce and a tsp of a1, per Df suggestion.


I browned 2lbs of ground beef with 1 tbsp each of onion and garlic powder. I added a little bit of Italian seasioning... I guess a pinch. Df dashed it with more worchestershere sauce and added about 20 turns on my sea salt/dried minced garlic grinder...

I've mixed it all together... And its simmering now...

Df has tried it and approves! That's all that matters! Df says I can't cook! So I'm trying to get better... Lol!

 To be honest I would probably use the broth you have and if you have Maggi's I would dash some in.

I'd use the chicken broth. I hate beef broth so I always use chicken.

Yes you can combine chicken with beef, if you brown the beef and throw everything in the crock pot ( cook rice first so it don't absorb all your water) the beef will add its own flavor to the chicken broth

Add a little brown roux for color and texture.
