Beef & Barley

Slow simmered cubes of rib eye beef with Bob’s Red Mill barley. I used a broth I made a while back and froze. It has some dried mushrooms in it that I had forgotten and was perplexed for a minute when mushroom slices turned up in the soup. The faint red tinge is from a squeeze of tomato paste. Those toothpaste looking tubes of tomato paste are handy when you just need a little bit.
