  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 large yellow onion
  • 1 tsp kosher salt divided in half
  • 1 tsp garlic powder divided in half
  • 1 quart beef broth
  • 2 large carrots chopped
  • 3/4 lbs Yukon gold potatoes
  • 14 oz diced tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3.5 ounces shiitake mushrooms


Items Needed:

  • A large pot
  • Measuring spoons
  • A large sharp knife
  • A cutting board
  • A large wooden spoon


  • Put a large pot over medium heat and place the ground beef in it. Add 1/2 teaspoon each of kosher salt and garlic powder. Break the beef up with a large wooden spoon or other utensil and cook for 5 minutes, until beef is browned and fully cooked.
  • Cut up the onion, carrots, and potatoes with a large sharp knife and cutting board while the beef is cooking. Dice the onions, chop the carrots, and cut the potatoes into 1/2 inch pieces. Set aside the carrots and potatoes but pour the diced onion into the pot and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until onion softens slightly.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the pot, except for the mushrooms. Increase the heat to medium high and bring to a boil.
  • As the soup comes to a boil, remove the stems from the mushrooms and chop the tops into 1/2 inch pieces.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low heat and add in the mushrooms, stirring to combine. Cook for 12-15 minutes, until carrots and potatoes are fully cooked. Serve and enjoy!
