Beef and Barley Soup

    February 25, 2017

    I was honestly not sure if I should call this recipe a soup or a stew because it’s not as thick as a stew… it’s not as thin as a soup… it’s kind of in between. I know some people would call it a stoup, but I wasn’t sure if that was just a made-up cooking term, so I settled on “soup” because my intentions were to make a beef and barley soup… but terms aside, this recipe is filled with lots of beefy yummyness! It also makes quite a bit, so make sure you have a large pot peeps! We meal prepped this on the weekend and this lasted the two of us all week and we never got sick of it!

    This recipe came after we had beef and barley soup at Kev’s parent’s house, ever since then that’s all we have been thinking about. So we had to make our own! I bought a bunch of small packages of simmering short ribs while at the store thinking that it wouldn’t be enough… It wasn’t until I started to brown the meat did I realize that perhaps I did buy too much meat to fit into the pot, but you know what, in the end it worked out p-e-r-f-e-c-t-l-y. Oh this beef barley soup is soooooo meaty and soooooo good.
