A wonderful, hearty soup that takes only minutes to prep. Pair it with fresh bread from your bread machine and you'll have a down home meal with little effort.

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound beef stew chunks, fresh or frozen
  • 4 Cups beef broth
  • 1/2 Cup pearl barley
  • 1 1/2 Cups diced carrots
  • 14.5 Ounces fire roasted, diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 Teaspoon thyme
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix, optional

Directions

  1. Step One

    Place fresh or frozen beef stew chunks, pearl barley, carrots, tomatoes & onion soup mix (if desired) into a 4 qt. slow cooker.

  2. Step Two

    Pour broth over all, cover and cook on HIGH 4 - 6 hours or on LOW for 8 - 10 hours.

  3. Step Three

    Twenty minutes before serving stir in thyme and salt & pepper, if desired. (Remember herbs get stronger as they cook).

  4. Step Four

    A 1/2 chuck roast can be used instead of the stew chunks. This recipe freezes well.

    We all liked this one! I doubled it so I would have some to freeze. Didn’t double the broth but added water. Put the onion soup in so it was salty enough for us.
