Nothing beats all this cold weather more than a big hearty bowl of beef barley soup. I added my own little twist to this classic by caramelizing the onions, swapping the celery for fennel, and adding some parsnips for a little sweetness and nuttiness.
This is the perfect dish for a cold, lazy Sunday, or pretty much any day of the week if you’re working from home. Especially when you look out the window and all you see is rain/snow. Don’t let the 2 hour cook time intimidate you. You’re building flavor each step of the way, which will result in an absolute flavor bomb in your mouth!
