Method for the  Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Bring to a full heavy simmer, and then add the organic frozen mixed veggies, celery, and onion—Season the Beef Vegetable Barley soup to your taste with Kosher salt and black pepper.
  2. Lower the heat down to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes before adding the quick cook barley. Simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring every so often until the vegetables are completely tender and the barley has thoroughly cooked. Check the soup to see if it needs a little more seasoning. If so, add more salt and pepper until it is seasoned to your taste.
  3. Ladle into soup bowls while still warm. Serve with a crisp salad and crusty bread.

    This is just the type of soup my mamma would make. I remember the heartiness of it and how good it felt going into my tummy. I’ve been looking for a barley soup recipe, and this was similar to hers. I’m definitely making it again. We’re having lots of cold days, and the soup will warm us up.
