1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound lamb cubes, cut into bite-size pieces
1 small onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
4 celery ribs, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
7 cups Progresso® reduced-sodium chicken broth (from two 32-ounce cartons)
2 tablespoons tomato paste (optional)
cup hulled or regular barley
teaspoon dried rosemary, crumbled
teaspoon dried oregano
teaspoon ground black pepper


  • 1 Heat the oil in a large soup pot over low heat. Add the lamb and cook, stirring frequently, until browned all over, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove to a plate. Stir the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic into the pot. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to soften, about 10 minutes.
  • 2 Return the lamb to the pot and add the broth. Bring to a simmer and add the tomato paste (if using), barley, rosemary, oregano, and pepper. Partially cover and cook until the barley is tender-chewy, 45 to 55 minutes. Skim fat from the surface of the soup if necessary.
