Ingredients

    1 lb or so or stewing beef, or cubes of leftover roast, steak - whatever you have
    1 medium onion cut as large or small as you like
    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    2 large carrots, peeled and cut into generous chunks
    2 stalks celery, chopped fairly fine
    1/2 (or so) cup of pearl barley
    2 10 ounce cans beef broth, OR 2 1/2 cups water + 3 boullion cubes or 3 tbs beef base
    1 can tomatoes
    2 cups water
    salt, pepper, worchestershire sauce (start with less than you think you'll want, adjust seasoning before serving.)

Directions

Turn crockpot to high, add oil, beef and onion. Go have a shower, or start some laundry. Stir beef and onions occasionally. Have a cup of coffee, maybe 1/2 a bagel. Add everything else to the crockpot, give it a stir, turn the crockpot to low. Put your spoon, coffee cup, and bagel plate in the dishwasher, set it to run while you're away. DON'T FORGET to shut off the coffee maker. Leave soup to simmer all day, then adjust salt, pepper and worchester before serving.
