1 lb ground beef
4 tbsp unsalted butter divided
1 medium white onion diced
¾ cup carrots shredded

In a 12 inch frying pan, thoroughly cook ground beef. Drain fat and set aside for now.
In a large 5-Quart pot with 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium-high heat, sauté onion, carrots, and diced celery with Italian seasoning, oregano, salt and pepper until onions have softened, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add in beef, potatoes, and chicken broth to the pot. Reduce heat to low, cover with lid, and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
