Beef and Barley soup
This recipe was originally posted in Jan 2013 What's for Dinner thread.

I just made this for supper tonight and it was oh so good.

Beef Barley Soup (thick)

2 lbs beef round steak or 2 lbs beef chuck, diced
2 cups sliced carrots
2 stalks celery, diced
1/2 c. green pepper, diced (optional)
1 large onion, chopped
1 (16 ounce) can tomatoes, cut up (diced)
1 16 ounce package of mixed vegetables
1 diced potato (optional)
2/3 cup barley
1 Tbls. dried parsley flakes
1 Tbls sugar
32 ounce of beef stock or 5 cups water and 1 Tbls boulion or two cubes
1 teaspoons salt
1/4 teas. pepper
3/4 teaspoon dried basil (optional)
1 cup of water

1. In skillet brown beef. You can skip this step and just add the meat raw.

2. Place carrot, celery, green pepper, onion, mixed veggies in crock pot.

3. Put meat on top.

4. Combine tomatoes, barley, sugar, parsley, bouillon, salt and basil.
***If using Quick barley add to the last hour instead of now. I donít reccommend the quick, it gets mushy.

5. Pour over meat.

6. Add water.

7. DO NOT STIR. (this is sooo hard for me)

8. Cover and cook on LOW for 10-12 hours.*** I cooked it on high for three hours and turned it down to low for 5 hours.

Sounds good.

If you would like your recipe considered for a chef guy, you need to post it in the What's for Dinner thread.
