Crockpot Beef Barley Soup

I like Barley. I have a few recipes that uses it, but this one is my favorite. I know, it is getting more spring-like out every day, and I am still making warm wintery soups. They are just so good though to eat on those cool rainy spring days!!

The Menu:
Beef Barley Soup

The Original Recipe:
I really don't know where I got this recipe from? Did I make it up? I cannot remember. I change recipes so much that I don't keep the originals, so this is what I have.... and probably the way I made it my own makes this the original!

Beef Barley Soup


1 pound Lean stew beef, cut in 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 cup Chopped onion
2 Ribs celery, chopped
2 Medium carrots, diced
1 cup Frozen corn
3/4 cup Barley (NOT quick cooking barley. You want the real pearl barley, here)
2 Bay leafs
6 cups Beef broth
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

In crockpot, combine stew beef with onion, celery, carrots,corn, barley, bay leaf, and beef broth. Cook beef and barley
soup on low in crockpot for 6 to 8 hours. Taste and add salt and pepper, to taste.
