Recipe: Homemade Beef Barley Soup

Homemade Beef Barley Soup is a meal all by itself, but we like to have grilled cheese sandwiches to enjoy as well.  The soup freezes great too!

My family loves homemade soup for dinner.  During the cold months we will have soup at least once a week.  I'll even make soup during the summer!  

Today I'm sharing with you a favorite recipe for Beef Barley Soup and it came really good.  We had it last week again with ham and cheese grilled sandwiches and it made a great meal.  

It's a very easy recipe to make too.  Most of the recipes I share with you are I think so.  I don't like complicated recipes or even recipes that call for a lot of ingredients.  My time in the kitchen is limited on most nights and I really do need to get dinner on the table fast!

Homemade Beef Barley Soup Recipe

After you slice the beef into small cubes, brown in a little vegetable oil and add the celery and carrots.  After the beef is browned and combined nicely with the carrots, celery and garlic add the broth.

Add the barley after the beef has cooked for about an hour and is tender.  Continue to cook for another 30 minutes until the barley has puffed up.

This soup freezes well also.  Which is nice as I can send the leftovers to work with my hubby or use the leftovers for another meal on really busy nights.
