Easy to Make Beef Barley Soup

Here is a great winter soup that is very satisfying and filling. Tender pieces of beef with vegetables and a tasty broth. The barley, an under utilized grain really makes this a very hearty and delicious soup that is very easy to make.

Ingredients: Beef Barley Soup

3qts. beef broth

1 to 1 1/2lbs. cooked roast beef ( 1/2 cubes )

3 1/2 cups cooked barley

1 small onion ( diced )

1/3 green pepper ( small dice )

1/4 yellow pepper ( small dice )

4 cloves garlic ( crushed )

2 stalks celery ( sliced on the diagonal )

2 cups frozen mixed vegetables

1 teas. salt

2 teas. pepper

1 teas. dry oregano

Method: Beef Barley Soup

Add everything to a large stock pot except the mixed vegetables and cooked barley and bring to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes then reduce heat and simmer covered for 45 minutes stirring occasionally.

While your soup is simmering cook the barley according to the package instructions, it should take about 30 minutes.

After 45 minutes of simmering add your cooked barley and mixed vegetables and simmer another 30 minutes covered stirring occasionally. Thats it your ready to serve. Makes about a gallon of soup that can be refrigerated for about a week and frozen for up to 2 months.

This is a great idea for using up a leftover beef roast.
