A lovely low-carb version of beef barley soup. A lovely low-carb version of beef barley soup.
Number of Servings: 6


    1 Lb Beef - I used very lean sirloin cut into little pieces
    1/4 cup chopped carrot
    1 cup chopped celery
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1 clove finely minced garlic (I used two cloves grated on a microplane grater)
    1 Box Campbell's No Salt Added Beef Broth
    1/4 cup Barley soaked overnight


This can be cooked in continuity if you don't want to use the slow cooker - just start the barley in the morning and throw everything together at night.


The night before: Stir fry the beef long enough to get it really browned well and leaving lots of little bits on the bottom of the pan - DO NOT USE A NON-STICK PAN if you can avoid it. I used a stainless steel frying pan so lots of carmelization in the bottom of the pan. Remove meat from pan and keep warm, add onion and garlic and fry for a few minutes, then add carrot and celery and fry for a few minutes. Add in the Beef Stock cube and enough water to deglaze the bottom of the pan. Put aside and let contents cool. Refrigerate overnight.

Meanwhile, put 1/4 cup barley in a bowl and rinse a few times. Cover with water and let stand in a bowl in the fridge overnight.

In the morning, combine meat mixture with barley mixture in Slow Cooker. Add 1 Box of Beef Broth. Turn on low and let cook all day. Delicious!!
