Leftover Roast Beef Barley Soup

I’m a big fan of repurposing leftovers.  In fact this christmas I made a Prime Rib and we made 4 meals from the leftovers, including Christmas dinner.  It made the $60 price tag feel not so painful.  The night after Christmas we had leftovers.  I cut some of the meat off the bones and made a chili a few nights later – then a few days after that I simmered the bones and leftover meat with carrots, onions and celery and made a really tasty beef stock.  I turned that beef stock into leftover soup.  You don’t need prime rib to make this – but wow does it taste great 🙂

How do you prevent the barley from absorbing all juices and plugging the pot (after day 1)?
