    2Bleu's Note:

    Barley is a wonderfully versatile cereal grain with a rich nutlike flavor and an appealing chewy, pasta-like consistency. When the weather's cold, a big pot of soup simmering on the stove warms the heart as well as the hearth. In addition to its robust flavor, barley's claim to nutritional fame is based on its being a very good source of fiber. If you can't find barley in your grocery store, you can purchase some of excellent quality pearl barley at www.nutsonline.com If you'd like to try our vegetarian version, click here: 2bleu's Vegetable Barley Soup This can be made as chicken Barley soup as well, just change 2 ingredients (see list).

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preparing Barley: Like all grains, before cooking barley, rinse it thoroughly under running water and then remove any dirt or debris that you may find.
    2. 2
      In a large dutch oven heat oil over medium heat, Add meat and garlic. Cook until meat is browned; drain if necessary.
    3. 3
      Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally until barley and carrots are tender and fully cooked.
    4. 4
      Season to taste with additional salt & black pepper and serve. NOTES: Add more water if soup becomes too thick upon standing. Pearl barley takes a minimum of 1 hour to cook, whereas hulled barley takes 1.5 hours or more.

      Just like Grandma used to make (except for the red pepper flakes :) ) I made the chicken version, using boneless thighs, cubed. I used diced fresh tomatoes that I had to use up. Very hearty and tasty soup.

      With as much cooking as I'm doing these days, I had to cut this back by half, but that certainly didn't detract from this great tasting soup ~ It just means that I'll have to make it again sometime! The only real change I made was to leave out the optional mushrooms! It's a great recipe ~ Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
