Vegetable, Beef and Barley Soup

Submitted by: HMM007

Introduction

An "everything but the kitchen sink"-type soup, we used whatever leftover canned, frozen and fresh vegetables we had at the end of the week. It's great when you've got several odds and ends and you don't want them to go to waste.

Ingredients

    3 medium raw carrots
    1 medium raw onion
    1/2 medium head cabbage
    1 small can of peas
    1 12 oz. can of white corn
    1/2 medium tomato
    1 cup broccoli, raw
    1/2 large red pepper
    1/2 medium yellow pepper
    2 medium stalks of celery
    6 oz. (half a bag of frozen) green beans
    1 cup uncooked pearl barley
    1 lb. stew beef
    8 cups beef bouillon broth

Directions

Prepare all vegetables. When using frozen vegetables, be sure to cook the vegetables before adding to the crock pot. Microwave steaming works best as you can drain excess water.

Arrange vegetables in your crock pot (the more firm the vegetable, the closesr to the bottom it should be).

Brown the stew beef enough to give it a nice char but kept medium-rare in the middle. Add to the crock pot.

Measure out and add raw pearl barley to the crock pot.

Prepare your beef bouillon and pour over all ingredients in the crock pot. Set for 6 or 8 hours on low.

  • This is sort of what I do, use whatever needs to be used up. I don't use peppers because I don't like them, but it allows for exchanges. - 4/22/11
