HOW TO MAKE THIS BEEF BARLEY THICK?
Whisk a few tablespoons of starch into a little of the broth in a separate bowl and then whisk it into the pot. This prevents the starch from clumping and helps it dissolve into the soup evenly. This is a rich and hearty barley soup that leaves you completely satisfied and warms every inch of your body, so don’t get lazy to make everything it needs to a perfect soup that everyone craving for. 🙂
HOW MUCH TIME DOES THIS SOUP NEEDS TO BE MADE?
While ingredients list looks a little bit longer, this beef and barley soup need only less that one 1hour as total time. And I should note that time always depends on the serving. so if you used the same exact ingredients on the recipe which covers 6 serving, the total time should 1 hour. 15min to prepare the whole ingredients and 30min is the cooking time with 5min lass or plus depending on different factors.
DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START?
The simplest way to start is by cooking garlic and onion until softened. That’s where I always start and I think it’s the perfect one way to make this beef barley soup.
Then simply add all the ingredients to the pot and simmer until tender. And make sure to use homemade stock is you have some for the best flavor possible.
WHAT IS THE BEST BEEF FOR THIS SOUP?
You can use any kind of leftover beef for this beef barley soup including pot roast, leftover steak or roast beef. And if you don’t have cooked beef, you can simply cook it using either flank steak or cubed chuck.
And of course, you can substitute cooked hamburger in this barley soup recipe. You’ll also want to brown the beef with the onions and drain any fat if making a ground beef barley soup.
