So when I made this and saw what was in it I was like um is this going to taste good? And I must say it doesn’t look very appetizing either, sorry to say. But it doesn’t! But I am telling you its good!
1 lb. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup carrots, shredded
1 tsp dried scallions
1 tsp dried dill
2 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. flour
3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
2 cups peeled and diced potatoes (optional) (I ended up not adding these)
2 cups cheese, shredded
1 cup milk
salt and freshly ground pepper
2 Tbsp. sour cream (optional) (I didn’t add this either)
In a large sauté pan over medium heat, brown the beef,
stirring occasionally and breaking up any lumps with the back of a wooden spoon, 7 to 10 minutes.
Drain and set aside. In the same saucepan sauté onions,
and dried herbs until tender.
Add the broth,
potatoes (I ended up not adding the potatoes in) and beef
and bring to a boil. Reduce a heat, cover and simmer 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter.
Add the flour
and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring all the time.
Add to the soup
and bring to a boil. Cook for about 2 more minutes. Lower the heat and bring to a gentle simmer. Stir in the cheese,
salt and pepper.
Cook and stir until cheese melts.
Taste and adjust the seasonings. Add the sour cream if you like. Ladle the soup into warmed bowls and garnish with cheese. Serve immediately.
