Beef with barley and vegetable soup
Beef - an inexpensive tough cut of meat will do for this (since it has to be cooked for almost 2 hours)I used shank with bones.
Barley 1/2 cup.
Tomatoes - 3,
celery - few stalks,
carrots -2 ,
mushroom - 1 cup.
Onion- 1 big.
Spring onion - 1 .
Soup cube - 1 cube for each cup of water.
(You can add all kinds of veggies like squash,potato,beans,corn etc)
Brown the meat with some salt and pepper sprinkled on it.add in the cut veggies and saute with the meat ,you will not have to add any oil since the meat will give out some fat.pour in water and soup cubes and add the washed barley and bring to a boil. cover and simmer until the barley is cooked well - it will take around 1.5 to 2 hours.
A very filling and flavourful soup. I added mushroom at the end towards the last 15 minutes since I used enoki mushroom .If using the regular button mushroom you can add it earlier.
