Homemade Beef and Barley Soup

Nothing warms you up like a good bowl of homemade soup! With just a little prep, you can have this Homemade Beef and Barley Soup simmering away in the Slow Cooker. Or if you are in a hurry, cook it on the stove top, either way it’s a hearty and delicious soup!

Doug could eat soup everyday, for me though I like my soup to be filling, full of lots of yummy vegetables and tender meat. I think enjoying soup comes from your childhood, Doug grew up with a Mom who made soup at least once a week for dinner, and while I remember my Mom cooking soup, I don’t remember having it very often. But let’s face it, it’s easy to make, good for us and budget friendly too, pair it with a crusty bread and you have a meal.

  1. I love beef barley soup! I picked up the barley yesterday; great minds think alike. I would suggest a tablespoon of molasses.

    I think that I am going to make the base and can it. You can’t can the barley so I would add that when I heat it. Have to have a pressure canner to can meats if anyone is interested. I suppose you could freeze it too. I just don’t have any more room in my freezer thanks to all the great coupon deals!

    Enjoy!

  2. This looks so yummy. And I need a beef & barley soup recipe since it is one of my husband’s favourite kinds of soup. Thanks.

  3. The only thing this receipe is missing is “how many servings does this make” ? Other than that it’s great !!

  4. Hi! I am so excited to see this recipe for the slow cooker! My mom made the most amazing Beef Barley Soup when I was growing up and this recipe is so very like the one that she made on the stove top. I can’t wait to try it in the Wemo Crockpot that you folks were so gracious to offer in your giveaway. Thanks for the Crockpot, the recipe, and the wonderful memories this will inspire!
