Beef and Barley Soup


This recipe is so hearty and makes the perfect lunch in cooler months. If you find yourself with some leftover roast beef or lamb, get yourself some “pot” barley and simmer away.

The condiment of choice for this is Worcestershire sauce for those who want to give it a little zip.  All ingredients in this soup are from cooler climes like Ireland, Britain and Canada and just naturally melt together.

    Perfect for a cool day. Reminds me of a soup I had at a pub in Ireland.
