I know what you’re thinking — this is a holiday recipe? Sure, you might not serve it on Christmas, but it’s a easy meal to make during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. This is an insane time. People are running here and there and wind up resorting to fast food to feed their family. I have nothing against fast food, but it becomes really expensive (and unhealthy) when you eat out almost every night.
At the same time, I also know how hard it can be to find the time to whip up a delicious homemade meal too. This is why I’m sharing two crockpot recipes this week, rather than Christmas candy. Those recipes will come next week! But first, I want to help make it a little easier for you to put dinner on the table that doesn’t come in a bag with golden arches.
Beef barley soup is one of my favorite soups. It so hearty and filling. And comforting. Truly the perfect soup to serve during such a hectic time of the year. The best part is this soup reheats beautifully. This is an ideal meal for families with varying schedules and cannot eat dinner together. Family members can reheat a bowl in the microwave at their convenience, and it will taste just as delicious.
This is one of my go-to recipes when I need to make a quick, delicious meal that will give me plenty of leftovers for the week. This will be a family favorite in your home too, not to mention a lifesaver during the most wonderful (and busiest) time of the year.
