How I Make Beef And Barley Soup - Glen And Friends Cooking
Beef & Barley Soup Recipe
This beef and barley soup recipe is so easy and quick to make - and full of flavour! The secret ingredient in this soup is the Marmite. Yeah we know; our friends in North America just screamed Yuck! But the Marmite brings out all the flavour from the beef and mushrooms while allowing its own flavour to disappear. Give it a try; you'll love it.
45 mL (3 Tbsp) oil
500g (1 lb) stewing beef, cut into ¼” cubes outside round
Salt and pepper to taste
5 mL (1 tsp) dried thyme
5 mL (1 tsp) summer savoury
1 diced onion
1- 2 ribs diced celery
1-2 diced carrots
1.5L (6 cups / 500 g) sliced mushrooms
1.5L (6 cups) chicken stock
500 mL (2 cups) water
125 mL (½ cup) barley (pot or pearl)
15 mL (1 Tbsp) tomato paste
15 mL (1 Tbsp) Marmite
1 bay leaf
Season beef with salt, pepper.
In a Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat; then brown beef on all sides, for 30 minutes or so.
Remove to a bowl.
Then cook onions, celery and carrots over medium heat, scraping up fond as you go, until tender and onions are translucent.
Stir in Tomato paste, thyme and summer savoury.
Add mushrooms and continue cooking, stirring often, until mushrooms have released most of their liquid.
Add barley, bay leaf, and Marmite.
Stir in stock and water.
Return beef and any accumulated juices to pan and bring to a simmer.
Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until beef and barley are tender, about 1 hour.
