Smoked Beef Barley Soup Recipe

A healthy and filling soup packed with colourful vegetables, barley and smoked beef. Perfect for those cold Winter days.


1 Cup chopped onion

1 Cup chopped celery

1 Cup chopped carrots

2 Tbsp butter

2 Cups smoked beef, finely chopped

6 Cups water

6 Cups beef broth

1 28 Oz. can of diced tomatoes

1½ Cups dry pearly barley

2 Tsp salt

1 Tsp ground black pepper


In a large soup pot, cook onions, celery, and carrots with the butter. Once the onions and celery are tender (about 6-8 minutes), stir in the beef.

Cook, stirring often, for another 5 minutes.

Add the water, beef broth, and diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil and stir in the remaining ingredients.

Let the soup cook at a low rolling boil for 30-45 minutes. The barley should be fully cooked and the beef should be tender.
