Beef and Barley Soup.
It’s probably like, 60 degrees or something crazy where you live… right?
Well, back when I made this soup a few weeks ago it was cold. Really cold. Freeeeeezing. My fingers almost fell off. So I made soup, because when it’s freezing and your fingers almost fall off, that’s what you do. Make soup.
My mom claims that Mother Lovett made a mean beef and barley soup, but I never experienced it. I did, however, always get a cup of beef and barley soup while I worked at the gym and then would stand at the counter and eat it while watching others run on the treadmill and get red in the face. Take that as you will.
You definitely will want to slurp this up.
It’s one of the most comforting recipes I’ve made to date. Super easy too.
Plus… it’s an excellent excuse to eat a ton of crusty bread. I love that I’m in charge of all the rules.
You can find the step by step recipe on Tasty Kitchen. I live for soup.

This is simmering on the stove right now. Not yet at the stage to add the tomatoes. The broth is very smooth and comforting. Looking forward to the meal. I got a late start, so we’ll have it for dinner tomorrow – didn’t realize it needed to cook so long, but that’ll make tomorrow a cinch. Wish you could smell our house! You can just feel the love…..
I just spent most of the day in the kitchen making meals for this week – made this and I can’t wait to eat it! Just the samples that I had while I was cooking it….delicious!!!
Thanks for yet another great recipe! :)
Snow storm blew through here last night. Looking for some soup ideas to warm the bones, I love Beef and Barley. Thanks for posting.
I made this soup last night and it was super fantastic. Exactly what was needed on a cold night. Very comforting!
Barley is a member of the grass family. It is a self-pollinating, diploid species with 14 chromosomes. The wild ancestor of domesticated barley, Hordeum vulgare subsp. spontaneum, is abundant in grasslands and woodlands throughout the Fertile Crescent area of Western Asia and northeast Africa, and is abundant in disturbed habitats, roadsides and orchards. `-‘:
