Expert Tips

OK with vitamin A! The veggies in this recipe offer a super source of antioxidant vitamin A that helps prevent cell damage.

Cut the meat into about 1/2-inch cubes. This makes it just the right size for eating lots of small meat pieces throughout the soup.

The barley in leftover soup may absorb much of the liquid. Reheat and serve as a casserole or thin it with beef broth or tomato juice to your desired consistency.

Directions

  • 1 In 4-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over high heat. Add beef; cook and stir until no longer pink. Drain off fat.
  • 2 Stir in tomatoes, broth and water. Heat to boiling. Add barley and basil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 1 hour.
  • 3 Add mixed vegetables and onion; cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes longer or until vegetables are tender.
