Great flavor! Everyone liked this dish. Will probably add different vegetables next time in place of some of the potatoes and carrots for added flavor and fewer carbs.

This was surprisingly delicious! My husband doesn't really like vegetable beef soup but thought this was awesome! It is definitely a keeper. I omitted the tarragon and basil and used only beef broth, no wine.

I made just a few small changes. I sprinkled the meat with a bit of salt and garlic powder, as well as some pepper before browning it. I made my broth with "Better than Bouillon" soup base instead of the suggested beef broth, added more carrots, used half the amount of basil and 1/4 c. white wine & 1/4 c. water with the cornstarch. I was pleased with the outcome. We had it with Broccoli Cornbread.
