I always find myself sluggish during cold and rainy days. No, I don't find gloomy weather depressing, but rather enjoy it too much. Too much where almost nothing gets done. So my remedy, I hot bowl of beef soup.

The idea for this quick recipe stems from my inability to be productive during such days. And if you have the same problem, then this might also do the trick for you.

Your Ingredients

1 tbsp of olive oil
500g of coarsely chopped lean beef chuck
2 peeled and finely chopped carrots
2 finely chopped celery sticks
1 finely chopped large brown onion
2 crushed garlic cloves
2 tsps of chopped fresh rosemary
500ml (2 cups) of reduced chicken stock
500ml (2 cups) of water
80g (1/3 cup) of rinsed pearl barley
2 dried bay leaves
3 (about 400g) of finely chopped large truss tomatoes
300g of sweet potato peeled, cut into 1cm pieces

 

How to cook your Beef Soup

Over medium heat, pour half of your oil into a large sauce pan.

Add the beef and stir for not more than 3 minutes until it becomes brown.Remove beef and set aside.

Add in the remainder of your oil into the pan and add in the onions, celery and carrots. Stir the mixture for 8 minutes until it softens.

You then add the rosemary and garlic and cook for 1 minute to release its aroma.

Now throw the beef back into the pan.

Throw in your bay leaves, barley, water and chicken stock and bring the mixture to a boil.

Once it starts to boil. Reduce the heat, cover the pan and allow the mixture to simmer for 1 1/2  hour. Check dish from time to time and remove any scum that surfaces.

After an hour and thirty minutes, you then add your sweet potatoes and tomatoes and allow dish to simmer for another 30 minutes for the beef to become tender.

    A very simple yet useful receipe. As a fresh young adult in the working world with very little cooking experience, this dish not only fills me up easily and is easy to make, but more importantly it allows me to save up on costs on groceries as well! I highly recommend this receipe for anyone! =)

    I love soups and I love them even more on cold days. When I am lazy I actually will go to a coffee shop and order soup and a sandwich a nice combo but not the same as homemade. I am more a fan of veggie soups like leek and potato and broccoli for instance. But this beef one looks good. I notice you mention using a “large sauce pan”, can this be done in a slow cooker?

    This sounds perfect for the rainy days we’ve been having in San Francisco recently. I like that it uses chicken broth and lean beef…deliciously cozy and healthy! I could probably sub chicken for the beef? And like Jonathan mentioned, easy on the wallet. :)

    I am planning on making this recipe, but substituting the beef with tofu and using natural flavoring to imitate beef and usse vegan cheese. My sister is vegeterian and its my turn to cook for our weekly get togther and this recipe sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try this recipe.

    I really love that you use Sweet potato in the recipe. I think it is so much better for you than white potatoes because they are slower to release sugars into your blood stream and therefore give you more energy.

    Another relaxing, simple, delicious recipe. I love these kinds of soups, they remind me of Korean tofu soup. I tried this the other day and it is truly comforting on a cold day. Thank you!

    This soul is so comforting. I love it so much. I made it for my little girl when she was sick and she loved it too. The barley is such a great addition. I find it to very filling. This soup is very easy to make. I am planning to make it at my next dinner party as it looks great as well as being delicious. The colour from the sweet potatoes is beautiful.

    What people are saying about us:

    • "The shears arrived on time and in perfect condition. The moment I picked them up I knew these were quality shears. The very first thing I used them for was to cut a chicken in half. I cut through the breast, right down the middle and then through the spine. For a moment I thought something was not right with that chicken because I cut through it with such ease. I was amazed! They are extremely sharp and have a very nice weight to them. I feel tempted to buy another pair just because."

      By DRW

    • "Very fast delivery, very well packed, friendly, professional, courteous & very knowledgeable service. I'm a line cook so I go through 2-3 thermometers a month. This thermometer is very well built & very sturdy. It lights up which helps a lot. It's very quick on the readings which you greatly need when you have 15-25 things you need to check an hour. The probe is approximately 6-7 inches & at first I thought that was quite long but the more I've used it I like the longer probe. What more can I say about this? It's a great deal for the money & with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. I'll be buying a second & maybe a third for home on the barbeque grill."

      By deb

    • "At last, I can open the jars and bottles without asking for help. We were using some gizmo with a rubber strap that I could never understand how it was supposed to work let alone manipulate it correctly. Chef Remi’s jar opener is very simple to use and it really works on the first attempt with little to no pressure or stress on my arthritic hands. I am so glad I ran across this item and it is well worth the price (which is very good). I can use this tool not only in the kitchen but anywhere there's a jar, bottle or similar container to be opened."

      By grace jones

    • "I saw a commercial for these grill mats on TV, it almost seemed too good to be true.....so I bought them to try them out. Everything in the TV commercial was true and more! You can grill ANYTHING on these mats, keeps flavor in foods, you can add cheese & sauces to your food and there's no mess to clean up! Your grill stays clean, your food tastes amazing, and you simply rinse the mats with warm soapy water! I love these grill mats so much I bought another set for my dad, he grills all year round. My dad loved the grill mats also and is now telling his friends about them. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!"

      By Aly's Max

    • "My new favorite kitchen scissors. I love to cook but do everything I can to not have to touch chicken and these are perfect. Nothing worse than a pair of scissors that leave you half way through a cut and then doesn't come through, these are not those. I can't wait to try them out when making jerky next weekend. I will try to remember to post an update after but sure my review will remain the same. These feel very sturdy and like they will last forever. I have ordered several Chef Remi items and love them all. Wish they would make more stuff I could use as I have almost everything available on Amazon from them."
