    About this recipe: It is amazing that only a few simple ingredients can turn into something as wonderful and hearty as this. Remember that it will thicken as it sits.

    Serves: 6 

    • 2L (3 pints 10 fl oz) beef stock
    • 200g (7 oz) diced, cooked beef
    • 340g (12 oz) pearl barley
    • freshly ground black pepper to taste

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:1hr30min  ›  Ready in:1hr35min 

    1. In a large stockpot, bring beef stock to a gentle boil. Add beef and barley, reduce to simmer, cover and cook at least 1 hour.
    2. Check the tenderness of the barley. You might need to add more hot beef stock or water if too much evapourates.
    3. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste. Cook until soup reaches desired thickness.


    This is a great way to use up leftover beef from a roast.
