Tips

If you are a real meat lover you may prefer to add more meat....for my taste this was plenty. For the frozen mixed vegetables I use either peas and Carrots or bags with corn, peas, carrots, and green beans in them


Directions

Trim all separable fat from meat, cut into bite sized thin pieces. saute meat in olive oil until done.
Place meat, vegetables, Tomatoes sauce and diced tomatoes in a large dutch oven. Add beef broth, chopped cilantro, chopped garlic and boiling water . once the liquid returns to the boiling point reduce heat to a medium simmer and cook until the meat is tender. Return heat to boiling point add barley (optional) Salt, pepper or any other seasoning .
reduce heat to good simmer and continue cooking till barley has increased in size and is tender . It may be necessary to add additional liquid as the barley absorbs it
