Richard FL,

You recently posted that you make barley soup with with the prime bones. We have the bones, and a few small pieces of steak from last night, that I am planning on turning into soup today.

When you posted the make soup with bones recommendation, the ingredients did not come through with the post. Do you have a ingredients list? Tried finding it in recipes, but may be looking in wrong place. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

And one quick question, do you put pieces with fat in, and then skim as soup is cooking, or do you cool to collect fat from soup?

Cold night in Texas, and some barley soup sounds pretty darned good for dinner!!!

Many thanks,

    Put the liquids and the bones and meat in the pot. Bring to a boil and turn down to simmer, After an hour or so, the meat will start to pull from the bones add the potatoes, carrots etc. Possibly more liquid. Some worchestershire sauce and then when the veggies are getting ripe, add the barley. Some barley is instant and some is not. That determines the final cooking time. I do not worry about the grease as it adds flavor and there usually is not a lot. Make sure there is plenty of liquid at the end as the barley will soak it up. Enjoy with some nice French bread and a glass of wine.

    What about the rib bones?


    1 I like to make beef barley soup with them. Dutch oven, bones, beef/chicken stock, carrots, barley, onions, celery, sliced mushrooms, seasoning. Cook for couple hours add barley toward the end, depending on type, determines the time.
