If anyone of you know Hubby, you may have heard him refer to soup as "dirty bath water". I LOVE soup and Buggie thankfully has taken after me and LOVES "stoup" also. Over the past 10 years of being with Hubby I figured there is one soup he will eat, Beef Barely Soup, since it is nice and hearty.
So as the mercury only rises to 85 degrees today, I felt the urge to make a pot!
Here is the super simple but VERY yummy recipe:
1lb stew beef or hamburger (I prefer beef)
8 cups of water
1 pkg beef bouillon
14oz can diced tomatoes
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup diced onion
1/2 cup barely
1/4 cup parsley
salt and pepper to taste
garlic to taste
Brown beef in 2 tbs. oil. Add 8 cups of water to pot and boil, then simmer 1 and 1/2 hrs. Take meat out and sherd (with hamburger no need to brown or sherd).
Dissolve bouillon in 1/2 cup water. Add veggies and bouillon to pot. Add barely, parsley, spices, and meat.
Simmer until barely is cooked (about 45 mins).
I like to serve with shaved parmesan cheese.
Hope you enjoy this one as much as we do!
