  Looking for something that is easy to prepare, delicious and can warm your insides right to the very core?  Here is my recipe for a very Hearty Creamy Mushroom Beef Barley soup.


3 Celery stalks

3 Carrots

1 Large onion

1.5-2 lbs. Sirloin Steak

36oz. Low sodium Beef stock

1.5-2 cups Pearl Barley

4 Cups mixed mushrooms (Shitake, crimini, button)

1.5 cups of Half and Half

3 teaspoons of olive oil

1-1.5 tsp Thyme

2-3 Bay leaves

Salt and Pepper to taste


  Cut onions, celery and carrots up and fry in a large pot with the olive oil.  Cook until semi soft.  

 Trim and Cut Sirloin into 1/4 to 1/2 cubes. Brown in separate frying pan.  Add to cooked vegetables in pot.

 Chop up mushrooms and cook in frying pan until soft.  Add to pot
