My nephew is in the Military and while he was teaching at West Point he would have a few soldiers over to his home for some good home made food. He got this recipe from me and told me that his men really enjoyed this soup. I mentioned to him to serve it with nice hot home made Beer bread. YUM!!

In a 3 quart saucepan, brown beef, drain & set aside.
Using the same saucepan, saute' onion, carrots, celery and add the basil and parsley in 1 tablespoon of butter. (about 8 minutes)

Next add the chicken broth and diced potatoes and the browned beef. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover & simmer 10 -12 minutes. Make sure your potatoes are done.
