February 23, 2017


5 slices bacon
1-pound beef chuck roast or steak, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 large onions, shopped (about 2 cups)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cans (10 1/2 ounces each) condensed beef broth
2 cups water
1/4 cup regular barley
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon caraway seed
1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram leaves
3 medium potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 medium carrots, sliced (about 1 cup)
2 medium celery stalks, sliced
1 can (16 ounces) stewed tomatoes
1 package (10 ounces) frozen green peas, broken apart
1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces

Fry bacon in Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp; remove bacon and drain on paper towel. Cook and stir beef pieces, onions and garlic in bacon fat in Dutch oven until beef is brown. Stir in broth, water, barley, paprika, salt, caraway seed and marjoram. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 1 1/2 hours.

Stir in potatoes, carrots, celery, tomatoes, frozen peas and mushrooms (with liquid). Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Crumble bacon; sprinkle over soup. 8 servings.

Timing Tip: If you want to serve at different times, Beef and Barley Soup will hold covered over low heat up to 1 hour.
