Beef Barley Onion Soup

Using a package of onion soup mix will help speed along this recipe. Any leftover beef strips will do, but using leftover grilled round steak will impart a delightfully smoky flavor to the soup.
  • 5 c. water
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 2/3 c. uncooked pearl barley
  • 3 c. sliced mushrooms
  • 12 oz. cooked beef, cut into 2-inch strips
  • 1 tsp. black pepper

Bring water to a boil in a large stockpot. Add soup mix and barley. Reduce heat and simmer about 10 minutes or until the barley is tender. Add the mushrooms, beef and pepper and cook an additional 5 minutes before serving. If desired, serve with grilled cheese sandwiches.

  • Yields: 8 side dish servings or 4 main dish servings
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes
