Beef Barley Soup with Mushrooms
Here's how to transform leftovers into a very different dish. Leftover gravy from pot roast creates an intensely flavored broth for this soup.
Why This Recipe Works
Beef barley soup recipes benefit from leftover meat and gravy from our Country-Style Pot Roast with Gravy recipe. Thinning the gravy with water created a soup-like broth. We also found that a little barley goes a long way in this beef barley soup recipe. Barley swells dramatically as it cooks, so we only needed a small amount for an entire pot of our Beef Barley Soup with Mushrooms.
