Hamburger Supper Recipe

My mother-in-law shared this recipe with me when my husband and I were first married. Over the past 50 years, I've relied on this meal-in-one more times than I can count. - Dolores Hickenbottom, Greensburg, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 4 hours YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup hot water

  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

"Simple ingredients and easy to prepare. My only suggestion would be to use 2lbs hamburger and to season the hamburger somehow."

"Burgers were wonderfully tender!!

My family tries to limit starches so I did not use the potatoes and instead used extra frozen mixed veggies. I also mixed a splash of worcestershire sauce, fresh minced garlic (2 cloves) and a packet of onion mushroom soup mix into the hamburger before making the patties."
