JustMeTo: I'd be happy to; it's really a "little of this, little of that" kind of recipe.

1 lb or so of chuck, diced small (that's my way; some like it large)
Brown lightly in batches, drain oil from pot.

add: 2-3 C good beef stock, return beef to pot
add: 1 turnip, diced small
1 or 2 carrots, depending on size, sliced 1/4 to 1/3 inch

simmer for 30 min or so (take your time, there's no rush)

add: 1 med yellow (or brown) onion, medium dice
3 stalks celery, 1/2 " slice
add more beef stock as the situation demands

simmer 30 min or so

add: 2 russet potatoes, pared and 1" dice
1 14oz can petite dice tomatoes, undrained

simmer till spuds tender, adding more stock to your liking.

You can also add, at the end, a small 6-8 oz can of peas or corn (drained) if you like. Sometimes I like, sometimes, I don't.

Sorry to get back to you so late, we spent the day sailing and whale watching. Soaked up plenty of sun; kinda pooped.

Enjoy the soup!

As the weather gets worse we are hiding inside from the strong wind and torrential rain today [Sunday] as a Cyclone heads towards us. The wind has really started to pick up in the past few hours and the roads are closing so it could be an interesting night.
We are happy little Vegemites, happy as can be
