DIRECTIONS

  • In a soup pot, boil the barley in 2 quarts of soup stock, 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Cook vegetable in separate pot to your own satisfaction (hard or soft).
  • Then put them into the barley soup. If soup becomes too thick, add water.
  • Leftover beef, smoked Ham or sausage (smoked butt is the best) can be cut up into small pieces and added to the soup before serving.
  • **I like to simmer on low for a couple hours and continue to stir it.
