💡Tips

1. Ground Beef Fat Content

The right fat ratio in your ground beef is critical for carnivore cheeseburger soup success. Since this is a richer, heartier soup, aim for an 80/20 ground beef blend or even 75/25.

The additional fat renders beautifully, offering extra depth and lusciousness without greasiness (you will drain some off).

2. Simmer the Broth for Maximum Flavor

Letting the broth simmer with the spices and seasonings for 25-30 minutes allows all of the ingredients to mingle together. The flavors really develop when you give it enough time over low heat.

Simmer until the broth is rich and fragrant before adding the cream and cheese. You won’t believe how tasty this carnivore cheeseburger soup will be!

3. Adjust Seasonings & Serve Hot

Before serving, taste and adjust any seasonings as needed. You may wish to add more Worcestershire sauce, salt or pepper.

Ladle the soup hot into bowls and top with the crumbled bacon. The melted cheese tends to thicken as the soup sits, so serve it hot out of the pot for best results.

4. Browning the Ground Beef

Take your time browning the ground beef. Don’t just cook it; brown it well to develop a deep, caramelized flavor. This is known as the Maillard reaction, where amino acids and reducing sugars give the beef a rich flavor and brown color.

5. Serve Soup Immediately

This carnivore soup truly is at its absolute best when served hot straight from the pot. The melted cheeses and heated cream create a smooth, luxurious broth, but it will thicken as it cools.

For the ultimate creamy texture and maximum flavor enjoyment, promptly serve the soup into bowls after finishing cooking. Do not allow it sit in the pot off heat for long, as the soup will lose its velvety consistency. The cheese also tends to clump together as it cools. 

Variations

1. Cheeseburger Soup with a Twist- Swap your standard cheddar cheese for other flavorful, melty choices. Gouda, Monterey Jack, pepper jack, and smoked cheddar all add their own unique notes to the soup base. 

2. Classic Meets Spicy- Turn up the heat, literally! Enhance the soup’s flavor profile for spice-lovers by adding chopped jalapenos when browning the beef. Introduce diced or sliced banana peppers when stirring in the cheese and cream for a more subtle, sustained heat.

3. Breakfast Cheeseburger Soup- For a brunch-inspired treat, play with morning flavors. Brown crumbled breakfast sausage or a mix of sausage and ground beef for your base.

Stir in the broth, seasoning, and heavy cream to create a base soup. Just before serving, gently poach or fry several eggs to place on top of each bowl, then cover with shredded cheese and crumbled bacon.

Storage

This delicious carnivore soup will last 2-3 days when properly stored. To store: Allow the soup to cool completely, then transfer to airtight containers. Glass containers or plastic containers with tight fitting lids work best.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why is it important to drain the grease after browning the ground beef?

Draining the grease helps to remove excess fat, which can make the soup overly greasy and affect the texture and flavor balance. It also ensures a smoother consistency and helps to highlight the rich flavors of the other ingredients.

2. Can I use a different type of ground meat?

Absolutely! You can substitute ground beef for ground turkey, ground pork, or even ground lamb. Always pay attention to the meat’s fat content, as this will affect your soup’s richness.

3. Are the Worcestershire sauce and mustard powder necessary?

Worcestershire sauce and mustard powder offer savory-tangy undertones that bring out the classic cheeseburger flavor.

However, if you follow a very strict carnivore diet or have sensitivities, you can skip them. Just be aware your soup might taste a bit less like a traditional cheeseburger.
