Hearty Crock Pot Cowboy Soup

Hearty Crock Pot Cowboy Soup

This is nostalgia soup for me with happy, cozy feelings from my childhood. My Mom made this quite often – especially in the autumn and winter – but we called it by the very plain name, Hamburger Stew. Coming in from school, or playing outside in the cold, the aroma from the kitchen was most comforting. I never aske my Mom how to make it and I think I convinced myself that only she could create something so wonderful.

My kids took after me and this soup was their favorite. My Mom lovingly made it for us every time we visited. When I found this recipe, I was determined to try to make it. My children believed that only Grandma could make this soup.

Well … I did it! The house had the same comforting aroma, and I immediately called my Mom to share my news. She laughed and told me that it was one of the easiest things to make. Indeed, it is incredibly easy, and everyone loves it which is great because I now make it about once a week!
