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).

Slow Cooker Cabbage and Sausage Soup Recipe

Notes:

• Use whatever kind of sausage you prefer – Italian, Chorizo, Andouille, etc.

• While I have never done it, you could definitely use smoked sausage (Italian, Polish) and just dice it up into bite-sized pieces. If your sausage is not precooked, make certain to cook it before adding it to the soup.

• This is 1.5 quarts of liquid plus the bulk for the food. A mini slow cooker might be too small (2 or 2.5 qt) but you should be ok with 4qt+ slow cooker.
