Okay, so it's not really a soup...it would even be a stretch to call it a stew...
It's a wonderfully starchy filling meal that feels so good after coming in
from a cold winter day.
We are very fortunate that all the ingredients were grown/raised locally.
Beef Bean Barley Soup
One large beef soup bone (optional)
2 cups sliced carrots
1 large onion
2 stalks celery
2 more cups assorted veggies
1 cup chopped beef (optional)
1 cup barley
1 cup mixed lentils (golden and green come in my favorite mix)
Water to cover the items
Simmer the beef bone for about an hour in water that will cover it. Remove any beef leftovers from the bone and discard (or give to the dog) the bone. Add in the veggies and beef. Let simmer until everything is tender. Bring to a boil and add in the grains. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the grains are tender.
Good for you
