Beef Barley Soup

Total time: 60 minutes
    This was one of my favorite soups as a child, though I ate the condensed, canned version, not home made.  This is ever so much better. The recipe calls for canned beef stock, but if you would like to make your own, (I did) that recipe is below.  There will be enough soup for 2 meals - cook once, eat twice.

Beef Barley Soup Ingredients:


Beef Stock

  Time: at least 2 hours, 4 - 6 is better, plus chilling time
     It's best to make this the day before using, to allow ample time for chilling so you can remove the fat. You can leave this simmering on the stove top for hours.  Make more, divide into 1 cup portions and freeze it.  Or reduce it, to concentrate the flavors, and freeze in ice cube trays, then put into freezer bags.
