This is simple and delicious. Sautéing the vegetables and beef before adding the broth tremendously improves the flavor.

"We also added a packet of French Onion soup mix as well as a couple of extra carrots and onion. We used leftover beef pot roast meat, which I added with the broth. This was the most flavorful beef soup I have ever had. It makes plenty which we are glad for because it's certainly something I can eat again and again. Thanks for the recipe."

I made a few changes. Used a full pound of stew meat; added one potato; about a teaspoon of cracked black pepper; added pack of Knoor's French onion soup mix; used two cans of diced tomatoes instead of one. It made a great soup. Hearty and thick. French onion soup mix was a good boost.
