In a medium pot, brown ground beef; drain and set aside. In the same pot, saute the onion, carrots, celery, basil and parsley in 1 tablespoon butter until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the broth, potatoes, and ground beef; bring to a boil.
Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
