I think that even beginner cooks would know to transfer the browned hamburger to a soup pot and add the remaining ingredients and continue cooking as directed. I found it to be very easy, quick, and tasty.

this recipe looks like chunks of beef yet the recipe call for ground beef. Which is it. Thanks..

I thought this was pretty good, but I personally didn't like the strong Italian herb flavors. I would cut down on parsley and basil in the future. I also would have hoped for more of a beef flavor, but it was more of a tomato/veggie broth flavor. I'd make it again with a couple adjustments.
