    Kishka's Note:

    It should really be called "Commitment Soup" because it's the kind of soup that you need to commit a Saturday or Sunday to. Not that it's tremendously complicated, it just that letting it cook for 6-8 hours does some wonderful things to it that 3 hours on the stove couldn't do. So if you are doing some weekend OAMC, throw this on and stir every so often. Feel free to substitute any veggies you prefer - just because we use 'everything' doesn't mean you have to!

    1. 1
      Chop all the vegetables into bite size (they can be diced small or very roughly chopped, depending on preference). Set aside in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a large stockpot and sautee onion until translucent.
    3. 3
      Add beef and brown.
    4. 4
      Pour in water and add vegetables. Cover pot and bring to a boil, then reduce to a medium flame and partially uncover.
    5. 5
      After an hour or so, add the tomato paste and barley and continue to cook, stirring every so often to make sure the barley doesn't stick.
    6. 6
      After another hour or so, uncover the pot, add the dill & parsley and allow to cook for about 20 minutes (pot lid stays off from now on).
    7. 7
      Remove the herbs and raise the heat to bring to a solid boil.
    8. 8
      Allow soup to reduce until it is relatively thick (soup should be reduced by about half by the end), then season with salt & pepper. Salt is key here - it brings out all the flavor.
    9. 9
      Freezes beautifully - allow to cool and divide into freezer-safe containers. Use within 4 months. Enjoy!

      I think this is the longest time I have ever cooked a soup (LOL). It made a pretty good tasting soup. Prepared as written. Thanks Kishka. bullwinkle.

      Great soup. I added a 12 oz can of tomato juice, some diced tomatoes from my garden and a small can of baby lima beans. Came out wonderful. thanks.
