Directions

Spray a nonstick Dutch oven with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, 5 – 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
Add the oil to the Dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, leek, carrots, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 8 minutes. Add the broth, tomatoes, okra, water, barley, Worcestershire, and House seasoning; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until the beef is tender, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Add the green beans and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Sprinkle with the parsley.
Test Kitchen Tip:
Bobby and Jamie decided to replace some of the starchier veggies in mom’s recipe with high-fiber pearl barley instead. You can also use quick-cook barley. Since it is pre-steamed, it cooks in minutes. If you use quick-cook barley, add it 10 minutes before the soup is done.
