I'm always up for a new soup recipe. I tried my this one from the food blog Framed Cooks over the Thanksgiving holiday week-perhaps the coldest week in November I ever remember in Lodi-and this was the perfect way to warm up on the inside. (I tweeked it just a little)
Beef Barley Soup
Saute chopped onion in a small amount of olive oil in a
dutch oven until transparent.
Add seasoned beef and brown well.
Add remaining ingredients except for barley.
Simmer for several hours or put in the crockpot.
During last 1/2 hour, add barley.
