Super Storm Beef and Barely Soup Recipe

It is cold and sunny here in Minnesota, but as I type this the newscasters are chatting about the Super Storm heading toward the East Coast. The combination of hurricane Sandy and a strong Canadian cold front are not looking pretty.

So, if you are stuck in the path of the storm that is expected to drop 1-2 feet of snow in Kentucky, I have the recipe for you. Beef and barely soup should keep you warm, and you might have most of the ingredients in your pantry.

Beef and Barely Soup Recipe

  • 1 pound Zweber Farms ground beef
  • 2 carrots peeled and sliced in rounds
  • 2 celery ribs chopped
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1 large can tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup barley
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 beef boulion cubes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Brown the beef in a dutch oven with the onion. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to boil. Turn to low and simmer for 1 hour.

Remove the bay leaf and serve. I served this dish with hot out of the oven corn bread.
