Hamburger Soup aka Vegetable Beef Soup

Mr. Grisham reeled me in with this soup YEARS ago. When he uses my homegrown, canned tomatoes to make it, there's nothing better. It falls into the "hurt yourself from eating so much" category. In my opinion, this doesn't need anything else but eating, but Andy likes to make peanut butter or homemade pimiento cheese sandwiches to eat with it. At times I will bake up some cornbread, but the flavor is so rich I don't want anything taking away from the flavor.

As you see in the picture below, it should be thick enough that your spoon stands up in the pot. So there is your goal! If you can fix it the night before you're going to eat it...even better! This is a one pot dish so clean-up is super easy.

1 lbs. ground beef
1 large sweet onion, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste.
Saute beef and onions in the pot. Season. When meat is browned and onions are tender add the following ingredients and let simmer.

2 cans whole kernal corn, drained
1 cans green beans, drained
1 cans carrots, drained
1 cans baby peas, drained
1 jar (or can) of homegrown canned tomatoes (or store-bought)
1 can black-eyed peas, drained
1 can small lima beans, drained
1 can sliced potatoes, drained and diced smaller
1/2 of a 46 oz bottle of tomato juice
1 can tomato paste to thicken (if needed)
