Beef Barley Soup

It looks to be a cold rainy weekend in these parts. A big pot of steaming soup is likely to be appreciated by all within sniffing distance of this hearty dish.

You can also use leftover diced roast beef or leftover grilled steak, just add it half way through the cooking time instead of at the beginning.
