Hearty Hamburger Soup

This was an easy to make soup that tasted great on a cold evening.  I used 1 15 oz can of green beans in place of the frozen.  In re reading this recipe, I realized I forgot to add the diced tomatoes!  I know that would add something to it--while I was eating it, I thought it needed a bit of something!
Hearty Hamburger Soup

1 pound lean ground beef
4 cups water
1 can diced tomatoes -- (14-1/2 ounces) undrained (Beth forgot these)
3 medium carrots -- sliced (Beth used shredded)
2 medium potatoes -- peeled and cubed
1 medium onion -- chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
4 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1 cup cut fresh or frozen green beans (Beth used canned)

In a large saucepan, brown beef; drain. Add the next 10 ingredients; bring to a boil.

Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender. Add beans. Cover and simmer 15 minutes longer or until the beans are tender.

This recipe serves 8 (about 1 cup)
