Ingredients for Mama’s Beef Barley Soup:

a large stock pot or dutch oven

2 tablespoons of canola oil

1 pound carrots, chopped

2 medium onions, chopped

5 cloves of garlic, minced

28 ounces canned beef (I get mine from a local meat market or butcher or you can can your own)

32 ounces beef broth

2 teaspoons of salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

8 ounces of rinsed Pearled Barley

4 cups water

Instructions for Mama’s Beef Barley Soup:

In your large stock pot or dutch oven, add olive oil and heat over medium heat, til just warm.  Then, add carrots and onions and saute until carrots start to soften and onions are slightly translucent.  Next, add the garlic, saute until tender.

Add the canned beef and break it apart in the pan with a spatula or spoon, while combining it with the vegetables.  Then add the beef broth, salt, and pepper. Add the Pearled Barley and water and stir.

Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 45-50 minutes, or until barley and vegetables are tender.  Remove from heat; let stand for 5 minutes, then serve.

About Nelle

I am Nelle. I grew up in rural, small town, Ohio. When I was young, I learned a lot about homesteading from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, 4-H, FFA, and others around me.
Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…

Welcome to my homestead…come and learn with us!
