  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter divided
  • 1 medium white onion diced
  • 3/4 cup carrots shredded
  • 3/4 cup celery diced
  • 1 tbsp italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 large russet potatoes (about 3 cups) peeled and cut into bite size pieces
  • 3 cup chicken broth low sodium
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded

  • In a 12 inch frying pan, thoroughly cook ground beef. Drain fat and set aside for now.
  • In a large 5-Quart pot with 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat, sauté onion, carrots, and diced celery with Italian seasoning, oregano, salt and pepper until onions have softened, 2 to 3 minutes.
