As a full-time teacher, I only have time to cook from scratch a few nights each week. This slow-cooker soup recipe makes a big enough batch to feed my family for two nights. —Julie Kruger, St. Cloud, Minnesota

Crock-Pot Hamburger Soup Tips

Can I put frozen hamburger in the Crock-Pot?

Starting with frozen meat in a slow cooker is not the safest way to go. The low and slow temperatures give bacteria more opportunity to grow. If frozen is all you have, take a few minutes to thaw it in the microwave before adding to the slow cooker.

How long does hamburger soup last in the fridge?

3-4 days. Cooling your soup quickly will help it last longer, so divide it into smaller containers (also easy to grab and go, bonus!) before putting in the fridge.

Can you freeze hamburger soup?

This recipe will freeze just fine. Just make sure to slowly reheat on the stovetop to prevent the cream from curdling.
Vary the flavor of Tomato Hamburger Soup each time you make it by using different blends of frozen mixed vegetables.
