The Easiest Beef Barley Soup Recipe: Comfort Food in a Bowl

I enjoy soup all year long, but especially in the fall and winter. Beef barley is one of my favorites. I like this soup recipe in particular because it doesn’t have potatoes; I figured I eat plenty of carbs already!

This rich and hearty soup has a great mix of textures, with the tender beef, vegetables and chewy barley. It will leave you satisfied and warm. It’s the definition of comfort food; it reminds me of being home from school sick and being taken care of by my mom.

Complete the meal by serving with Cheddar Bay Biscuits and a salad, or your favorite soup side dishes. Pack the leftovers for lunch the next day!
