Beef Barley Soup

A couple of years ago, we were at an Italian restaurant in Markham, Kara Mia.  The soup of the day was Beef Barley Soup.  My husband ordered a bowl to share and really enjoyed it.  After I tried re-creating the soup at home and today I'm sharing what I came up with.  I started with a recipe from Skinnytaste and made some adjustments.  The soup we had at Kara Mia had some tomato in it so I added tomato paste.  I also added in some thyme and paprika.  This is an easy recipe to make and is very filling.  I use my pressure cooker to speed up the cooking time.  I've also used dried porcini mushrooms that add a lot of flavour.  I am not able to always find this at the grocery store, so if you don't have if, feel free to proceed without it.
