Beef and barley soup is a classic and this recipe adds another classic to the soup pot - lima beans!
Ingredients:
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrots
1 can low sodium (14.5 oz) beef broth
1 lb lean beef stew meat, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
4 cups water
1/4 cup dry pearl barley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 cups cooked (1 cup dry) large lima beans or 2 cans (15 oz each) butter beans, drained
2 Tbsp minced parsley
Directions:
1 Place onion and carrots in a large dry saucepan. Cook over high heat, stirring frequently until vegetables start to brown and stick.
2 Add 1/2 cup broth; stir to release brown bits. Cook until liquid evaporates and vegetables begin to stick again, about 5 minutes.
3 Add 1/2 cup broth and continue cooking until liquid evaporates and vegetables are soft and golden brown.
4 Add meat and cook until no longer pink. Stir in remaining broth, water, barley, salt and pepper. Simmer, covered, 25 minutes.
5 Add beans and parsley; cook 10 minutes or until barley is soft.
6 ENJOY!
