beef barley soup

Salutations!  This beef barley soup is one of my mother's famous recipes, and one of our house favorites...  I love me a good, wholesome soup, especially during a ridiculous deep freeze.  Thank you, Michigan.

Ingredients:

3 pounds lean stew beef
1 large yellow Spanish onion, diced
1 pound baby cut carrots, diced
1 1/2 stalk celery, diced
1 28 oz can of petite cut diced tomatoes with juice
8 oz medium pearled barley
2 cubes of Beef Bullion
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Dice the onion, and cut the beef into small, edible-sized pieces.  But both in your pot, on a high enough setting to brown both.
Dice the celery and carrots, and add them to the pot.
Add water, enough to cover everything in the pot (probably 2-3 inches deeper than the ingredients), bring to a boil, and stir in the bouillon.
Bring to a boil, add barley.  Simmer for 30 minutes, and enjoy!

Sláinte! Don't forget, all of the images here are Pin-able, and the recipes are printable (look for the "Print" button at the bottom of this post)! If you try this one out, do come back and let me know how you liked it.

  1. Looks like a soup I had as a child, except yours has tomatoes. How many servings in the recipe?

    1. Always happy to bring back memories! Hopefully they're good ones! I'd say at least a dozen servings. :)
