I have been eating this since I was a child, and Mom usually called it chop suey. She was from New England. I also hear it called goulash and hamburger soup.
I generally use a lower fat content ground beef, and don't drain it, as the fat adds flavor, and I don't lose the other liquids created while browning the meat. I have also used ground turkey, but the flavor is not the same, even when adding beef soup base.
When I want more than just the basic soup. I also will add bell peppers, preferably the red and yellow ones, as some in my family find green ones have too strong a flavor. I will also add mushrooms and/or a can of small black olives.
I will serve this with a loaf of Italian bread, and I like it with shredded parmesan cheese. I generally will make a big pot and eat it for a couple of days.
