When its the dead of winter, a big pot of soup becomes absolutely necessary. After a long, cold day soup is always the perfect way to warm up your body and soul. This Vegetable Beef & Barley Soup is most definitely my new favorite winter time recipe. Because of the big chunks of steak and hearty vegetables, it’s healthy and filling.

Here’s how this delicious Vegetable Beef & Barley Soup is made:

Step 1: Brown the Sirloin Steak

In a large Dutch oven or stock pot, add some olive oil, and brown the meat. It should be cooked nearly all the way through, with only a little pink remaining. Remove the browned meat from the pot and transfer to a bowl to keep warm.

Step 2: Saute the Vegetables

To the same pot, add the vegetables over medium high heat. Saute for 5-7 minutes or until the onions become slightly translucent.

Step 3: Add the rest of the ingredients to the stock pot

Once the vegetables have cooked, add the beef back to the pot, and all the remaining ingredients.  You’ll bring the beef and barley soup to a low boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low. The soup will simmer for approximately 15 minutes.

Pro-tip: Be sure to check the package directions of the barley for accurate cook times. I recommend getting quick-cook barley to keep the cook time low. However, if the barley is not quick-cook, expect the cook time to increase to 45-50 minutes.

Once the barley and beef soup has finished simmering, it’s ready to enjoy! Ladle into bowls and top with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese or enjoy with some of my Easy Cheesy Breadsticks, which are perfect for dipping.

In addition to the carrots, celery and onions, mushrooms would be a fantastic addition to this soup. Much like my Slow Cooker Sirloin Beef Stew, the mushrooms would add some additional heartiness to the soup. This soup is also fantastic as a meal prep option. Great for making on the weekend, and bringing to work as a healthy lunch.
