I don't remember where I got this, but I do know I have changed it slightly. Everyone I've served it to has really enjoyed it. And it's amazingly easy.

This is so easy to make and tastes wonderful. The rosemary and thyme compliment the broth. I used fresh garlic and cut back on the soy sauce a bit as I felt it might be to salty. I skipped the beef bouillon cube and added 2 cups of beef broth. It was so nice to come home and have dinner was ready. All I had to do was make a salad and the meal was complete. Thank you for posting it Charmed.
