Beef Barley Soup

A big thank you to my sister in law, Jasmine for passing along this recipe, it's absolutely delicious!-Sarah

1 1/2#'s ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2/3 cup barley (quick cooking barley is fine)
4 carrots, peeled and diced
2 stalks celery, chopped
28 oz. tomato sauce
3-10.5 oz. cans beef broth (I used 4 cups water with 4 t. beef bouillon)
3 bay leaves
2 cups water
1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
salt and pepper (I also added Lawry's)

  • Brown beef, onion, and garlic till no longer pink. Drain fat from meat.
  • Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 1-1 1/2 hours.
  • Or cook in a crock pot on high for 1 hour or on low 5-6 hours.
