When it comes to cheese soups, boiling is an enemy because it can cause curdling. Once the cheese is added, just let the soup gently simmer.

Instructions

Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add sirloin and cook until brown. Add onions, celery, carrot, and garlic; sweat over medium-low heat, 10 minutes.

Stir in broth, potatoes, and basil; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook potatoes until fork-tender, 1012 minutes.

Melt remaining 3 Tbsp. butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour; cook 12 minutes. Whisk in milk until smooth; add to soup and cook until thickened, 34 minutes.

Stir in Cheddar, ketchup, and mustard until cheese melts; season with salt and pepper. Top soup with pickles and serve with shoestring fries.

Use a wooden spoon to break up the large chunks while browning the meat to avoid clumping.

Statistics

Statistics

  • Average: 5.00
  • Standardized Average: 5.00
    This is the average rating for this recipe, relative to the average rating of all of the recipes on this site. The average rating of all the recipes on this site is 56.69. If we pin the population average to 3 (define 3 as the new 56.69) and adjust this particular recipe's average accordingly, we see that, relative to a population average of 3, this recipe's adjusted standardized average is 5.00. This number is useful in that it accounts for how different people have different interpretations of the rating system.
  • Median: 5
    This is the rating that is in the middle of the ratings distribution. It is generally more indicative of how much you will actually like this recipe than the average because the average is subject to being skewed by outliers.
  • Mode: 5
    This is the most common rating that people have given this recipe.
  • Standard Deviation: None
    This is a measure of how polarizing the recipe is; how much people disagree about it.
    0 is the least polarizing; everyone agrees on the rating.
    2.5 is the most polarizing.
    Recipes with lower standard deviations in the ratings are better for people who don't want surprises. Higher standard deviations are good for adventurous cooks. There is no standard deviation for this recipe because it has fewer than 2 ratings so far.
There are a lot of recipes for this soup on the internet but this is honestly the best! Tastes just like your favorite cheeseburger. I top mine with dill relish and crispy bacon. Puts it over the top, thanks Cuisine at Home for another great recipe!
