As with all recipes, I first try them 'as is' even if I've read other reviewers' comments. The soup is thick, almost no broth, not as flavorful and the beef is still chewy though the vegies are perfect. Next time, I stewed the beef in advance so it holds its shape but falls apart when bitten into, adding it and the juices in last 20 min to warm and integrate. I used 4 cups of beef broth and 3 cups of water. I prefer more carrots, so I used 2 cups and omitted the mushrooms and frozen vegies. It was perfect. I still give Melanie kudos for providing a good base recipe!
