How to Make Beef Barley Soup
Start by using a large soup pan, melt the butter on medium heat, add the celery and onion. Sweat the celery and onion until it starts to get tender. Stir to combine.
Add the stew beef along with the seasoned salt and pepper to the pot with the celery and onions. Continue stirring every couple of minutes until beef is browned.
Then add the minced garlic and the sliced carrots to the pot sautéing all together.
The last ingredients to add to the soup is the broth and the pearl barley. Simmer the soup till the everything is tender, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking on the bottom of the pan.
Don’t like barley?
Just leave the barley out of the recipe to give you a vegetable soup. I will make this recipe without barley just to switch up a bit every now and then!
