  • 2 cups diced carrots
  • 2 cups diced onions
  • 2 cups diced celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 bay leaf

  • 5 cups beef broth
  • 4 ounces frozen sweet corn

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté beef until cooked through; drain if necessary.
