I had some things to use up from the freezer, (a tri-tip sirloin, half a bag of mixed veg (corn, beans, peas, carrots) and swiss chard) and found this recipe. Instead of using an additional pan for browning the meat I used my big enamel coated cast iron dutch oven and browned the meat and made the soup all in the same pan. Instead of marjoram I used rosemary and thyme, just my preference. I still added the celery and potatoes along with my frozen vegetables. There are reviews here saying the tomato paste was too much, but I found it perfect. It is definitely very "tomatoey". Think of the tomato soup we all eat with a grilled cheese sandwich! That is the level of tomato flavor and texture of the broth which I find very appealing. Next time I'll salt & pepper the meat when browning. Even though the flour is seasoned, the meat itself seemed like it needed more salt. All in all this is an awesome soup, very satisfying and warm in the tummy. I'll be making this often.
