Vegetable Beef Soup - Basic Recipe

Recipe by Impera_Magna
READY IN: 1hr 5mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Brown meat in large pot along w/ onions, celery, and carrots.
  • Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer 30-45 mins til veggies and barley are done.
  • Note #1: I’ve been adding ½ cup pearl barley to the soup, which will be done in the amount of simmering time. Quick barley takes only 10 minutes to cook so you could add later.
  • Note #2: I’ve found that adding pasta, while good at first, it continues to absorb the soup liquid and get really big and the soup becomes more like a stew. If you’d like noodles, I would cook them separately and add them to the bowl just before ladling in the soup.
  • Note #3: You could also add rice, if you would like.
