  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup onion diced
  • 1 stalk celery chopped (approx 3/4 cup)
  • 1 large carrot peeled, chopped (approx 3/4 cup)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 3 cups (1½ lbs) potatoes yellow or gold, chopped
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp dried parsley
  • ¼ tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded


  • Add ground beef to a large dutch oven or stock pot. Cook over medium heat, breaking up the beef as it cooks. Cook until all beef is browned and no longer pink. 
  • Pour the beef into a strainer, to drain out the excess grease and set the meat aside. 
  • Return the empty pot to the stovetop and melt the butter over medium heat. 
  • Add the onion, celery, and carrots. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce. Cook while stirring often until the vegetables are softened. Add in the garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds. 
  • Stir the flour into the pot to coat the vegetables. Cook for 2-3 minutes while stirring. 
  • Pour in the beef broth, stir and scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon to loosen any bits that may have stuck during cooking.
  • Add in the salt, pepper, dried parsley, crushed red pepper, diced potatoes, and cooked ground beef. 
  • Bring soup to a simmer, turn heat to low to keep at a low simmer, cover the pot and let cook for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are softened. 
  • Once potatoes are cooked, remove the pot from heat, stir in the milk, then add the cheese and stir while the cheese melts. 
  • Serve while warm with optional toppings!
