In a large skillet, cook the beef over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until brown and place it in the slow cooker.  Saute the onion and carrots in 1 tablespoon of butter and add to the slow cooker.  Add the potatoes, broth, seasoning and bacon to the slow cooker.

Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.

Thirty minutes before the dish is done, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a small-size saucepan and add the flour.  Cook until bubbly, about 5 minutes.  Add it to the slow cooker, this will help thicken the soup.  Add the cheese, milk, sour cream and salt and pepper to taste.
