2 Hr

What You'll Need

  • 8 cups water
  • 2 (10-1/2-ounce) cans condensed beef broth
  • 1 pound beef top round, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 4 medium-sized carrots, sliced
  • 2 large celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup barley

What to Do

1. In a soup pot, combine all of the ingredients except the barley; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

2. Add the barley and continue to simmer for 1 1/2 - 2 more hours, until the barley is tender. 


  • If you have a little leftover pot roast or steak, you can cut it up and use it instead of the top round.

  • And if you use meat that's already cooked, the soup's cooking time can be reduced a little- just make sure the barley is cooked until tender.
