Cheeseburger Soup

I saw this on a rerun of Triple D. It was made in a resturant in upstate New York. I Binged the recipe and modified it slightly. Here is the modified recipe. Really good stuff.

2 Pounds Ground Beef, I used 80 / 20
32 Ounces Beef Stock
1 Pint 1/2 & 1/2
1 Small Block Velvetta Cheese, Cubed
1 Large Sweet Onion, diced
3 Tablespoons Butter
3 Medium tomato, Chopped
1/2 Head Iceberg lettuce, Chopped
Salt & Pepper, to taste
1/4 Cup Flour, Mix with water to make slurry for thickener
Hamburger seasonings, I used onion soup mix, some basil and seasoned black pepper.

1. In a Dutch Oven, melt butter and sweat onions until translucent. While thats going on, mix hamburger seasonings with ground beef as if you were going to make patties for the grill. When onions are done, remove them from the pot and add ground beef mixture. Brown ground beef, breaking it up, and brown completely. Don't worry about a little sticking to the bottom, your going to want this. When done, remove from pot and drain fat.

2. Add your beef stock, heating it up. Add your flour slurry and bring to a boil, scraping bits off bottom of pan. Add 1/2 & 1/2 and Velvetta. Cook until the cheese is all melted, not boiling, stiring a little more than occasionaly to keep cheese from sticking to bottom. Add in onion and beef.

3. Season to taste and lower heat. Cover and cook for about 45 minutes. Add tomato and lettuce, stir and serve.

4. Add croutons in serving bowls as desired.

I hope this isn't negative!

Re: Cheeseburger Soup

Nick that is a keeper. I just made a huge batch of Brunswick Stew, but I believe Cheeseburger Soup is next in the pot. Thanks for sharing.
