Submitted by: 2 Blue

Recipe Ingredients:
2 tablespoons  olive oil
1 lb  beef sirloin steak, cubed small
garlic cloves, minced
8 cups  beef broth (we use Better Than Bullion paste)
beef bouillon cubes
1 (8 ounce) can  tomato sauce
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can  diced tomatoes
1 cup  pearl barley
1 teaspoon  dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon  basil
1/4 teaspoo  n crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
bay leaf
carrots, sliced
stalks celery, chopped, 1 onion, chopped into large pieces
6 ounces  fresh mushrooms, sliced (optional) * salt and black pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions:
1.  Preparing Barley: Like all grains, before cooking barley, rinse it thoroughly under running water and then remove any dirt or debris that you may find.

2.  In a large dutch oven heat oil over medium heat, Add meat and garlic. Cook until meat is browned; drain if necessary.

3.  Stir in remaining ingredients except salt & black pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally until barley and carrots are tender and fully cooked.

4.  Season to taste with salt & black pepper and serve. NOTES: Add more water if soup becomes too thick upon standing. Pearl barley takes a minimum of 1 hour to cook, whereas hulled barley takes 1.5 hours or more.
