Beef and Barley Soup



Here’s what you need:

  • ¾ pound sirloin, cut into cubes
  • 4 cups of beef broth
  • 1  14-oz can of fire roasted tomatoes
  • ¼ cup pearl barley  (Use rice to make it gluten free)
  • 1 cup of frozen, mixed vegetables.  (I used corn, peas and green beans)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Here’s how you do it:

Put the beef in a kettle with 2 cups of broth and simmer for 30 – 45 minutes – until the beef is semi-tender.

Add the remaining broth, the tomatoes and barley and simmer for 1 hour, until the barley and the beef are tender.

Add the frozen vegetables and cook until heated through.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve hot with warm bread.  Makes approximately 4 servings.

    I appreciate you listing a gluten free alternative for the barley. My family is gluten free. I believe we were in the same Blogelina last fall. 😀 ~Adrienne

      I had to be gluten free for a few years to control gal bladder disease. I know a lot of little tricks like that – and I’ll try to remember to include them in the recipes! Thanks for stopping by.
