Hamburger Stew Texas Style

posted by Jennifer

With this cold spell Texas has been having I thought it would be the perfect time to bring out my Hamburger Stew Recipe. It is a delicious comfort meal packed with veggies! The twist is that I like to give it a little heat by adding a jalepeno, cayenne, and a can of rotel. This meal is so easy to make and makes for great leftovers! It will sure be a hit in any household! If you don’t like spicy, simply takeout the jalepeno, cayenne, and rotel. But I’m telling you, you’re gonna LOVE it!!


  • 2-1/2 pounds Ground Beef ( I use 93% lean ground beef)
  • 1 whole Large Onion, Diced
  • 5 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Jalapeno Pepper, seeded and diced (optional)
  • 1 can (14.5 oz.) Can Whole Tomatoes
  • 1 can(10 oz) Rotel tomatoes
  • 1 Can(6 oz.) Tomato Paste
  • 5 cups Beef Stock Or Beef Broth, Plus More As Needed
  • 1 whole Yellow Bell Pepper, seeded And diced
  • 1 whole Red Bell Pepper, seeded And diced
  • 2 Cups of Julian/sliced carrots
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Celery Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Parsley Flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (optional)
  • 1 16 oz pkg Brown Rice Macaroni Pasta
  • Other Veggies Optional(load up on veggies if you’d like.  I always add whatever is in the frig..Broccoli…YUMM.)

Hamburger Stew Texas Style

  1. At Medium/High, Brown Ground beef, onion, and jalapeno (optional) in a large pot along with Worcestershire SauceIMG_6729
  2. Remove Pot from heat.  Place 2 or 3 paper towels in a colander and pour beef mixture in the colander.  Drain as much grease off of beef as possible.
  3. Pour beef mixture back in pot.
  4. Hand shred whole tomatoes and add to potIMG_6748
  5. Add all other ingredients and stir
  6. Cover pot and simmer 15-20 minutes (until carrots are tender)
  7. In separate pot, cook brown rice macaroni noodles as directed on package, drain. I like to leave my noodles al dante since they cook a little more in the hot stew and when you reheat it.
  8. Add noodles to soup


Do not add noodles until the soup is finished cooking, as the noodle will continue to cook and get soggy…BLAH

If you like your broth thicker, you can add a little starch water from the pasta to the soup.

Ground Turkey is a meat viable option, as well.

This will surely warm you up on those cold nights! Enjoy!
