Instant Pot Hearty Beef Barley Soup Recipe

Do you have an instant pot? Hubby likes ours. A fast pressure cooker that has versatile settings. You can cook a lot of different things in an Instant Pot, but soup is probably the easiest. This instant pot beef barley recipe has a lot of little steps, but the end results are worth the effort!

One of the things that always strikes me is the name “instant” pot. It really isn’t instant at all. It reminds me more of a multi-cooker than a slow-cooker. I will admit I do not use ours. Like most of the kitchen gadgets in our home, it is allllll Hubby. He likes it. To me, it seems a bit like work, but I can’t argue with the results – they are simply fabulous!

Beef Barley was my grandfather’s favorite soup. Hubby used to make him this beef barley soup recipe all the time. I cannot help but think he would have loved this hearty beef barley soup recipe using the instant pot.

Homemade bread or rolls goes so well with Beef Barley soup. You can make your own homemade yeast rolls or homemade white bread with these easy recipes!

Notes:

• Read the directions on your instant pot.

• For the cubed beef you can use round or chuck roast or stew meat.

• If you want a thinner soup, use one cup of barley and go up from there for a thicker soup. My family likes it more like a stew, so we use 3 cups.

• This beef barley recipe is low on liquid which also makes this very thick, very hearty. If you would like a thinner soup, you can try upping the liquid to 6 cups.

• You can freeze leftover beef barley soup for later! Just remember to label the containers with date and recipe name so you do not have a freezer full of UFOs (unidentified food objects).

Impatiens Flowers: Tips for Growing Impatiens

Impatiens Flowers: Tips for Growing Impatiens

Question? Who else calls Impatiens impatients? LOL I know I do because I cannot wait for them to grow into their full beauty!

Most Impatiens species are annual or perennial herbs with succulent stems, however, impatiens are popular garden annuals. Some species, like busy Lizzy (Impatiens walleriana), grow as perennials in US plant hardiness zones 10 and 11, mostly impatiens are usually treated as annuals in the United States.

I love impatiens and grow them in my backyard garden planters. They do great in my “just under” the backyard patio roof – enough sun to make them happy, but not dry them out.

Impatiens are available in most any color you can think of (except blue). It is any wonder they are such a popular bedding and pot flower!? Some of the most popular impatiens are:

New Guinea Impatens – New Guinea Impantiens sport larger flowers and are considered great speaders (they will grow in and look lush and full). They are what we in the United States most likely think of when we think “impatiens”.

Impatiens Balsamina is easily grown in evenly moist, organically rich, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. This species is native to southern Asia in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Myanmar and not what you would think of as a traditional impatien in the United STates. I could only find them in seed form.

Impatiens Glandulifera is a large annual plant native to the Himalayas. Very exotic, I could only find them for sale in seed form.

If you are curious about growing impatiens, look below at some helpful growing tips. You will find that these tips for growing impatiens can help you achieve the yard of your dreams!.


Plant Impatiens from Seedlings

You will experience success quicker if you plant impatiens directly from seedlings. You can typically buy flats for as little as $8 each (24 plants), making each seedling plant quite inexpensive. The plants can then be added to window boxes, planters, or added directly into flower beds and gardens.

If instead of buying seedlings you would prefer to grow your Impatiens from seed, here’s a great post: Growing Garden Seedlings Indoors

Choose to Plant your Impatiens in Well-draining, Nutrient Rich Soil

Impatiens are durable, but you still need to provide them with well-draining and nutrient rich soil. Potting soil with some compost mixed in is ideal, and always use planters and pots with proper drainage. This way, the roots stay dry and well fed.

And don’t forget to …

Give your Impatiens a Little Food

You can feed your impatiens liquid plant food every few weeks to keep them thriving. This will help increase your blooms, and help your plants fill out nicely. It can also help keep their foliage nice and green. While it is generally thought that bedding impatiens do not need extra food if your soil is well prepared with nutrients prior to planting, your impatiens in pots and boxes will need to be fed.

Do not Crowd Your Impatiens

You might get the itch to fill your pots up fast, but don’t overcrowd. Plant your impatiens a good 3 inches from each other so they can spread out naturally. This way, they also won’t be fighting for nutrients and they will grow in nice and full.

Sun or No Sun, Impatiens Will Thrive

Impatiens are a shade loving plant, so you do not have to worry if you get less than 6 hours of full sun a day, they will do just fine in shade, and continue to bloom all season. If you do not have shade, your impatiens will still thrive (provided they are not in full sun where their flower growth may be stunted) just be sure to keep the soil moist to prevent wilting and drying.

Dead Hhead Impatiens Regularly

Impatiens are one of those plants that will do better if dead blooms are pinched off. This way the plant can put its energy into new blooms and not reviving dead ones. You do not have to get fancy, just pinch old blooms off and toss them in your compost! I use my thumbnail if they need to be “cut”, but generally just pull off the flower heads (hence the term “dead head”).

Impatiens Flowers: Tips for Growing Impatiens. Impatiens are the perfect plant for those limited on space, sun, and time. They are one of the most forgiving plants you can grow, and can quickly add a pop to color to even the smallest of growing spaces. If you are curious about growing impatiens, look below at some helpful growing tips. You will find that these tips for growing impatiens can help you achieve the yard of your dreams!.


Keep the Impatiens Soil Mmoist

You should give your impatiens watered well, with a good 2 inches of water per week. Impatiens like moist and crumbly/loose soil, and regular waterings should help. If you notice foliage turning yellow, hold off on ading water as it can be a sign of overwatering.

Watch the Impatiens Temperature

Impatiens are an annual, so they do not like cold weather. Cover plants at night if the temperatures dip or a frost is predicted. At the end of the summer season, you will either need to bring plants in or add them to compost. They will not regrow the following season unless you replant.

Impatiens are such sweet little flowers, and a great way to add color to your yard. Try these tips for growing impatiens and see how they can help!
