    1. 1
      Wash beef; pat dry with paper towels. Trim away any visible fat; season beef with salt and pepper (to taste). Cut into small bite-sized cubes.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in a large, heavy-bottom saucepan. Transfer the beef to the hot butter and cook over medium heat until brown on all sides.
    3. 3
      Add remaining ingredients to saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and continue cooking, covered, for 1 1/2 hours or until barley is tender and beef is fork-tender.
    4. 4
      Remove the bay leaf and laddle into warmed soup bowls. Enjoy your soup as a meal complete unto itself or add a lightly-dressed fresh spinach salad and warm crusty french/italian bread.
    5. 5
      COOK'S TIP: For a delicious twist on traditional beef and barley soup, when it's done simmering stir in 4 cups of fresh baby spinach. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
