Soup, Chili & Stew
Beef and Barley with Mushrooms
A medley of mushrooms adds a rich earthy flavor to this hearty soup. We like it with Hy-Vee Baking Stone rye bread, but any artisan loaf would be delicious.
Servings and Ingredients
|1 lbs. assorted mushrooms (button, shiitake, cremini, oyster and/or portobello)|
|¼ c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour|
|1 tsp. Hy-Vee salt, divided|
|½ tsp. Hy-Vee black pepper, divided|
|1 to 1 1/4 pounds beef stew meat|
|2 tbsp. Hy-Vee Select olive oil, divided|
|1 c. chopped shallots|

|1 tbsp. chopped fresh thyme|
|6 ½ c. chicken stock|
|6 c. water|
|1 ½ c. pearl barley|
|2 tbsp. tomato paste|
|1 tbsp. lemon juice|
- Slice or chop larger mushrooms into bite-size pieces. Remove shiitake stems; save for another use or discard. Set mushrooms aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add meat; toss to coat. In a stockpot, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add meat; cook until brown, stirring occasionally. Remove meat from stockpot; set aside.
- Add remaining oil to stockpot. Cook shallots and garlic in oil over medium-high heat until softened. Stir in mushrooms, carrot, celery, thyme and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add stock, water, barley, tomato paste and meat. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 45 to 50 minutes or until barley is tender. Remove from heat; stir in lemon juice.
