  • Ground Beef – 1 kg
  • 1 White Onion
  • Garlic Clove
  • Velveeta Cheese – 250 g
  • Frozen Vegetable Mix – 2 Cups
  • Chicken Broth – 1.5 L
  • Russet Potatoes – 6 Cups
  • Cornstarch – 2 tbsp
  • Milk – 1.5 Cups
  • Dried Basil Leaves
  • Dried Parsley Leaves


  • Take a large skillet and fry the ground beef with diced onions until the beef is cooked and changes its color to brown.
  • Take a stockpot and fry garlic until brown. Then add the fried ground beef to it.
  • After simmering for a few minutes, add the russet potatoes, vegetable mix, chicken broth, and basil leaves.
  • Leave the mixture to cook for about six to eight hours on high flame until the potatoes dissolve in the broth.
  • Take a bowl, add milk and cornstarch and mix it well. Pour this mix into the soup.
  • Stir it for one to two minutes. After that, add the Velveeta cheese and simmer until the Cheese is melted completely.
  • Add parsley leaves and simmer until the desired consistency of the soup is achieved.
  • Your easy-to-make and creamy hamburger and potato soup are ready to be served hot.


Russet potatoes are highly suggested to be used in this recipe. It is a key ingredient which makes this recipe even more delicious. Russet potatoes easily dissolve into the soup mix, making it thicker and creamier. You should not mix red potatoes in this recipe as they will not easily break down and produce lumps in the soup.
For those who dislike ground beef, you can substitute this with ground chicken.
If you like your soup super-thick, you can add more cornstarch. Or, if you want runny consistency, then add cornstarch accordingly.

    I have no idea how, cooking on high for 6 to 8 hours, that you would have anything left. This has to be typed incorrectly?? I’d like to make it, but am confused about the length of time to cook. Will probably just wing it, but wanted a fool-proof recipe as I am bringin it to a friend who has been ill so didn’t want any errors.

      Slow cooker or crockpot low is about 200F High is about 300f. I did this one with shredded cheese, Turned out very good.

    • Chris

      I would put this in a crock pot on low for 4-6 hours.

    I used a crock pot let it cook on high over night then added the cornstarch and cheese in the morning and cooked on low for 1/2 hour then set to warm just to keep it ready
