This recipe is an excellent way to use up those leftover beef. A homestyle rich and hearty beef and barley soup that will bring a smile to your face. You got all the amazing flavors, you got the smell, then, you got the texture in a snap that just cracks in your mouth. My family’s favorite soup, perfect for cold nights or every night. Another crockpot dish is a must-try and to keep. I first tasted this when we visited my in-laws and I loved it immediately. I asked for the recipe and I have been making this since. This soup will fill you up with warmth and all the goodness a soup can bring. So much flavor in one sip, I could not ask for anything more! Pretty easy to whip up but takes time to cook so all the exciting flavors will be blended perfectly. Worth the wait!
1 pound boneless chuck roast trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 1/2 cups carrots thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups celery thinly sliced
2/3 cup onion chopped
1 package pre-sliced mushrooms 8-ounce
2 tbs beef base (this is different than beef broth it is a base that makes beef broth)
8-10 cups water
1 large bay leaf
HOW TO MAKE BEST EVER BEEF AND BARLEY SOUP
Step 1: In a nonstick frypan, cook the beef until browned while frequently stirring.
