Leftover Roast - Beef Barley Soup

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Magicduo

I clipped this recipe year's ago and adapted it to use my leftover beef roast and steaks. Just chop up any leftover beef, throw it in a freezer bag and store until you have enough to make the soup. Also, save your leftover broth. It really makes the soup rich and flavorful. Great for a cold winter day!

Excellent way to revitalize overcooked roast. I used one can of spicy V-8 in place of one cup of broth. Next time I'll leave the peas out. Didn't seem to fit with the rest of the soup.
