  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Season beef with pepper and 1 teaspoon salt. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until browned on all sides, about 4 minutes. Add wine and bring to boil, scraping up browned bits. Add potatoes, onions, carrots and mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Add tomatoes, with their juices, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute.
  2. Add broth, thyme, bay leaf and the remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the beef is tender, about 1½ hours.
  3. Whisk sour cream and pepper in a small bowl. Serve the soup topped with the sour cream.
  • Tip: Water or additional broth may be substituted for the red wine, if you like.
  • To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 4 days.

Nice flavor but the meat ends up being very tough and hard to chew. My family didn't want it again because of that.

I made the recipe as written. It was OK, but it did not have much "depth" of flavor. I thought the 1 cup of red wine was overpowering. I didn't have enough herbs/spices to make it flavorful. I would have added rosemary, more thyme, margorem, and some basil and added thickener to it. I would have reduced the red wine to maybe 1/2 cup.
