Description

A hearty stew, perfect for those long and cold winter nights. It’s a snap to put together in the crock pot and have it stew all day.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Beef Stew Meat, Diced Small
  • 1-¼ cup Carrot, Chopped
  • 1-¼ cup Onion, Diced
  • 5 cups Water
  • ¾ cups Celery, Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Parsley
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Beef Bouillon Powder
  • ½ cups Pearl Barley
  • 2 cans Tomato Sauce (7.5 Oz Each)
  • 2 whole Bay Leaves

Preparation

Place all ingredients in a 5-quart slow cooker. Stir. Cover. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.

You can add even more vegetables if you desire. Potatoes are great in this, too.

Remove bay leaves before serving.

I’ve made this a few times now. My husband and I both loved it, and that is saying something because my hubby is a tough food critic. I include potatoes, increase the peral barley a little, and I increase the spices (salt & parsley). It makes a lot and freezes nicely. I like that it is healthy and Weight Watchers friendly. Great recipe.

This was very simple and the beef was very tender and good (more of it would have been nice), but the rest of the dish was not eaten with much enthusiasm.

I made this today and it was delicious. It couldn’t have been easier. This will go into my winter dinner rotation!

Awesome…the carrots and celery stayed firm, which gave some texture to the soup. Flavors blended well, just add some crusty bread and supped my way through two bowlfulls!! Thanks!
