Step 1

Melt 1 tablespoon 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, diced potatoes, and basil; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook until potatoes are fork-tender, 10–12 minutes.

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour; cook 1–2 minutes. Whisk in milk until smooth. Add milk mixture to soup; cook until thick, 3–4 minutes.
