Super Easy Beef & Barley Soup


Beef Barley soup has always been a favorite of mine. Not only is it healthy for you, but the taste is so savory it seems to melt in your mouth. I always associate this soup with cold blustery days. 


1 Chuck roast, cubed and browned in a fry pan

2 medium onions, diced

1 cup celery sliced into moons

3 double size Knorr beef bullion cubes

6- 8 carrots, scrubbed and sliced into circles

6- 8 potatoes, scrubbed, peeled, and cubed

1 large can Italian Stewed Tomatoes

2 quarts water

3/4 cup pearl barley

salt, 15 shakes

pepper, 15 grinds (I use freshly ground tri colored mixed peppercorns)

onion salt, 15 shakes

basil, 4 pinches


Brown cubed beef, barley, onions, and celery until vegetables are tender. Add all other ingredients and cook until done. Barley takes about 45 minutes to become tender. I add salt, pepper, onion salt, and basil about 5 minutes before serving.
