Plan of Attack

Add the oil to your medium stockpot and then add the beef, cook until browned and coked through.

Remove the beef and set aside.

Add the carrots, onions and celery to the stockpot. Cook throughly.

Add the beef broth and cook thoroughly. Add the beef back in and then add the bay leaves. Cook until beef is very tender.

Add the beef broth and cook thoroughly. Add the beef back in and then add the bay leaves. Cook until beef is very tender.

When the beef is tender and the soup has integrated, add the quick barley and cook for 9-13 minutes more. Remove from heat and the barley will absorb more liquid after cooked, even after removed form the heat. You might have to add more liquid to the soup to have a worthy based soup.  If I was in a joke making mood, I would say this shtoup is so good, it might get ya schlepped, but I am not in a joking mood and mine did not get me shtupped….actually, I feel like recently I have been made to look very shtupid…
