Description

A rich cheesy soup that your family will love.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • ¾ cups Diced Onion
  • ¾ cups Carrots, Peeled And Diced
  • ¾ cups Celery, Diced
  • ¾ pounds Ground Beef
  • 4 cups Cubed Potatoes
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Crushed Basil
  • 1 teaspoon Parsley, Dried
  • 4 cups Beef Broth
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • ¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1-½ cup Milk
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • ¼ cups Sour Cream

Preparation

In a stockpot, saute the onions, carrots and celery in 1 tablespoon of butter for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, fry ground beef in a skillet until no longer pink.

To the stockpot, add the cooked ground beef, potatoes, basil, parsley and beef broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes.

Ten minutes before the soup is cooked, melt the 3 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan. Add the flour to the melted butter and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add the milk to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring until thickened. Remove from heat and stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until melted. Add the salt and pepper to the cheese sauce. Stir the cheese sauce mixture into the cooked soup. Remove from heat and add in the sour cream.

Note* The original recipe called for chicken broth instead of beef broth which makes the soup a more cheesy color.

So delicious! I only made a couple changes… used ground turkey instead of beef, omitted the carrots and sour cream, and added chopped tomatoes at the very end of the cooking process. It actually tasted like a cheeseburger!

This is one of my families favorite soup. When my kids were growing up it was the only soup they would eat. I felt at least they were getting some vegetables with the carrots and potatoes in there.

I really like this recipe but of course made a couple of changes…I don’t normally endorse processed cheese but in this recipe it definately gives that extra creamy texture. I also like a dash of nutmeg! Thanks for a great recipe!

This was my first Tasty Kitchen recipe to try. I loved it. I didn’t have carrots, so I used some reconstituted dried carrots. I can’t wait to try it again with fresh ones, it will taste even better. It’s very hearty and tastes like comfort food.

Delicious! Made with almond flour and used some gluccomannon for thickening to make gluten free, but the broth was still quite thin. Flavor was very good, though!

I made this last night and my whole family devoured it! No leftovers! I didn’t have beef broth so I used chicken broth. Also was lacking celery in the pantry, I just omitted it. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as stated. Delicious!

I just tried this recipe for the first time tonight after getting the link from a comment on PW, and boy, am I glad I did! This is absolutely delicious and the perfect comfort food for a chilly fall night. Everybody in my family just loved it and will definitely be adding this to my recipe box.
