Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger…Soup??

Wait! Don’t say ‘eeeew’ or ‘yuck’ just yet! Wait till you try it first. If you like menudo or picadillo, then I guarantee you’ll like this.

What’s in it?

  • ground beef
  • onions
  • garlic
  • all purpose flour
  • beef broth (or in my case, magic sabaw beef)
  • potatoes, scrubbed, peeled and chopped to desired size and shape
  • canned diced tomatoes
  • quick melt cheese or cheddar or a combination of cheeses that you like
  • tomato sauce
  • ketchup
  • milk (optional)

How to cook:
Brown the beef in a pan. Add chopped garlic and onion. Cook until fragrant. Sprinkle flour on the beef mixture. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add broth and potatoes. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender.

Stir in tomatoes, cheese, tomato sauce and ketchup. Cook and stir until cheese is melted. Season with pepper. Taste. If it’s still too bland, add salt. If you’re using milk, add at this point. I didn’t use milk.

I served this with the leftover hoagies and some rice because MB wanted rice. At first I thought that it would taste weird with rice but I actually loved it! This dish lasted for about 4 meals because it was really very filling especially when eaten on a cold night. I only used half a kilo of ground beef and it was well worth it.
