The last few days have been some of the coldest of winter so far (our first negative temps of the season). No matter how warm we heat our house, we can’t get warm, because the cold is seeping in through every little crack. My family came to visit me this past weekend though and we had a blast staying inside, playing games and eating good food. This Beef Barley Soup is an easy favorite and is perfect for those extra cold nights.

This soup was a staple growing up and for good reason. It’s delicious and comforting as well as easy, because it uses canned beef. Canned beef was something I assumed was sold everywhere, that is until I got married and couldn’t find it in the grocery stores. The canned beef makes this soup a snap, but if you can’t find it, beef stew meet or a soup bone will also work.

    This sounds soon good. When you say to use the beef in a can, is that the kind with the gravy added or not? Thank you
