Scotch Broth is full of beef and vegetables and very easy on the budget because you can stretch this meal over the course of the week depending on how many people you are feeding.
Recipe type: Soup
Serves: 5
  • 4 cups grated carrots
  • 2 cups shredded turnips
  • 1 cup shredded parsnips
  • ½ cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 1 cup barley
  • Handful of fresh parsley or oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper
  • 1kg beef (I used beef top sirloin)
  • OR beef bone
  1. Place pan of water onto stove. Make sure the pot is big enough to cover the beef completely.
  2. Add salt to water and place meat in.
  3. Once simmering skim off the foam from top of the water and discard.
  4. Add the vegetables and bring up to the boil then reduce back down to simmer and leave.
  5. You may get more foam just skim off.
  6. Leave for up to 3-4 hours or until you are ready to eat. This can be prepped the night before and assembled in the morning or placed in the slow cooker to go at slow place either way I think second day is best!
