Recipes Soups & Stews

Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Barley Soup

Thanks to my friend Crystal for this new recipe we tried this week!  I adjusted the water to add an extra cup, and used pot barley instead of pearl.  Turns out pot barley is more nutritious but I used it because it was all I could find, not because I’m trying to be all “I’m so much more healthy than you”.  Seriously, you’ve seen my other recipes, right?
