Brown Rice Beef Barley Soup

Hearty Beef Barley Soup with brown rice. Perfect for cold months! by ilonaspassion.com

Recently I ate a beef barley soup at Canadian Tim Horton. I usually eat potato – bacon or broccoli cream soup there. Whenever I’m in any restaurant I eat always the same food. I’m not sure why. Maybe because I know that I like it already. But this time they didn’t have my favorite potato bacon soup so I’ve decided to go with beef barley soup.

Yum! It was very good. When I came home I already new that I will be making this soup at home. I just made my own way. To the addition of the barley I added some brown rice. Carrots are always in my home so I knew they will be in beef barley soup as well.

Soups are often seen in my home. They are delicious and healthy. I have my own favorite soups like Broccoli Cheddar Soup or Crock Pot Chili. But some my favorite European soups are difficult to make in Canada. I just can’t buy necessary ingredients that are required.

This beef barley soup I made in crock pot. First, I cooked my beef first in the frying pan, then I transferred into the crock pot. The whole process of making this hearty beef barley soup wasn’t long.

  1. I’ve never cooked with barley which is odd since I love hearty soups and the two go together. I’ve also never made or eaten borscht. I’ll have to give that a try one day. 🙂

  2. Looks delicious! I love making soups too! They are so good for the heart, body and soul. This seems healthy and relatively easy to make! My favorite is (vegetarian) French Onion… YUM! Even without the beef broth it is still dynamite! Thanks for the recipe and awesome pictures!

  3. My boyfriend is always asking me to make him more soups – I’m thinking this one will have to be next on the list 😀 Looks delicious!
