  • 2 pounds boneless chuck roast, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup dry red wine (see Tip)

  • 6 medium red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 cups chopped onions

  • 2 large carrots, chopped

  • 1 cup sliced baby bella (cremini) or white mushrooms

  • 1 (15 ounce) can fire-roasted crushed tomatoes

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 4 cups low-sodium beef broth

  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme

  • 1 bay leaf

  • ½ cup reduced-fat sour cream

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper


  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 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and cook until the beef is tender, about 1 1/2 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
