This is a hearty beef, pearl barley, tomato, mushroom and celery soup my entire family loves especially in cold winter days. I make this soup with marinara from a glass jar as the tomato base. I try when I can not to use canned food because of the BPA. BPA is a chemical that has been associated with health problems like heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Some canned foods also have salt, sugar and preservatives which I try to exclude from our diet as much as possible.

I usually make the soup in the crock pot. If I am in a hurry, I set it up on high for about 3 hours. If I make the soup in the morning, I set it up for 5-7 hours on low. Bottom line, the beef and barley need to be cooked to your taste.

Notes

  • You can make this soup on the stove as well. Combine all ingredients and cook until beef and barley are done to your taste.
  • I use beef meat for slow cooker (the round top) but you can as well buy the pre-cut stew beef meat and save yourself some time cutting
  • I use the marinara jar to add water to the soup. You can add more/less depending on the thickness of the soup you like
  • We are extremely excited to announce we are now using the saferecipeguide.org guidelines to make our recipe safe-friendly. We will slowly be incorporating the safe recipe guidelines into our recipe instructions!
