Number of Servings: 20


    2 Tbs Olive Oil
    1 large Choped Onion
    3 cloves of sliced garlic
    1 cup green beans
    1 can rinsed black beans
    1 can rinsed Pinto beans
    1 can rinsed Garbanzo beans
    2 cups sliced cabbage
    1 8 oz bag of fresh baby spinach
    1 cup celery
    1 28 oz canned tomatoes
    1 6 oz can tomato paste
    2 med zucchini, sliced
    3 cups beef broth
    16 oz, lean beef stew meat
    1/2 cup barley, pearled
    1.5 cups sliced mushrooms
    2 Tbs Dried Basil
    2 TBS Dried Oregano
    Salt to taste


Brown beef in pan. Saute onions, garlic and mushrooms in pan. Place all in a crock pot for 8 hours on low, I usually do this the night before I plan on serving.

The next day, combine all the rest of the ingredients in a very large pan. Add the beef mixture that was cooked overnight in the crock pot. Cook on medium heat till barley and green beans are cooked through. Sometimes I have varied this with different combinations of spices such as cumin and chili powder. I have also used brussel sprouts instead of the cabbage.

I usually serve this in coffee mugs. So it is about 12 ouzes a serving.
