Beef Barley soup (2)_crop_crop_crop

Stovetop or Slow cooker!  Guess what?  It’s a Westover Leftover!  How nice! 

 

Have you made a roast beef or pot roast and everyone is tired of it?  Bring it back to life with this delicious hearty soup.  The broth is delicious- outstanding beefy onion flavor.  Serve it with a loaf of crusty homemade bread or cornbread and call it a fabulous dinner.  Barley is delicious.  I’ve always loved it.  Quaker tells us it’s also low in fat, full of fiber and niacin and no saturated fat or cholesterol.  Adding the carrots boosts your Vitamin A.  One medium carrot provides all the Vitamin A you’ll need in a day.
