Step by Step Method
Sauté the following ingredients together: Butter, chopped onions, chopped carrots, diced celery and garlic. Then add: flour, chicken stock, dill weed (I always use more, almost double it), ground pepper to taste, chicken base.
Mix all the above ingredients together well in large stock pot.
Then add: diced potatoes, green beans (fresh are best)
Mix together and then temper in to the hot liquid: sour cream and milk
Add last: Vinegar
Heat on medium stirring occasionally for an hour
Season to taste. You can always use more dill weed and cider vinegar or add it a little to your bowl when ready to eat. Also you can add a little salt to taste. Frozen beans are good too, I don’t recommend canned but they work.
No special items needed.
