1/2 cup (1 stick) butter

Rinse wild rice under running water using a strainer or in a bowl of water; drain. Bring wild rice and water to boiling in a heavy saucepan. Add _ teaspoon salt, reduce heat and simmer, covered, until kernels of rice open and are tender but not mushy, about 45 minutes. Drain and set rice aside.

Sprinkle flour over the meat mixture and stir well. Take pot off of heat. Gradually stir in beef broth. When broth has all been added, return pot to heat. Stir in vinegar, both cans of beans and cook until the soup is heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve piping hot. Yields 6 large bowls of soup.
