This Simple Tomato & Rice Hamburger Soup maybe be almost too easy to make, but you can't tell from the fabulous flavour! It also happens to be totally gluten free, as long as you check all of your sauces!
1teaspoonbrown sugarif you don't have a sweet ketchup
3/4cupuncooked white rice
salt and pepper as desired
In a medium frying pan, brown the ground beef, onion and garlic until ground beef is no longer pink. Drain the grease (I also like to rinse it with hot water to remove most of the grease) and place in a large crockpot. Alternatively, you can fry these in the bottom of your InstantPot and drain the grease from it.
Add the broth, tomatoes, Worcestershire, ketchup,brown sugar (if wanted) and Italian seasoning. Add more sugar and Worcestershire to taste if needed. Place the lid on the crockpot and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Alternatively, you can cook this on the stovetop. Simply add the rice and simmer until the rice is cooked.
For the crockpot method, thirty minutes to an hour before serving, add in the rice and cook until tender.
Serve and enjoy!
You can cook this in your Instant Pot on the soup setting for 15 minutes, just make sure to add the rice BEFORE and cook it all together!
