Hamburger Soup

This recipe came from an old church cookbook that my mom had. I always vary what I put in it depending on what I have around, but the basic concept is a hamburger stew with tomato juice in it. It is a favorite comfort food!

Hamburger soup
1 lb hamburger (or turkey)
6 potatoes
1 large onion diced
4 stalks celery diced
2 cloves garlic minced
4 carrots sliced
4 cups beef broth
2 cups tomato juice (V-8, homemade, or pureed diced tomatoes)
2 heaping T italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
2 bay leaves

Brown the meat with the onion and garlic, drain off any fat. Add to crockpot with remaining ingredients. Cook on high 4 hours or low 6-8 until veggies are tender.
