    Nif's Note:

    A tasty, healthy crock pot recipe that you will love to come home to on those chilly days. This is also a great meal to freeze in individual servings to take to work or school. I like to actually rinse the ground beef after it's browned. It is extra lean, but I always think if you can lower the fat and it still tastes great, then why not? Enjoy!

      Great soup to have on the chilly days we have been having. I used ground round, packaged matchstick carrots, a box of beef broth, and petite diced tomatoes. Since I could only find quick cooking barley I added it to the soup towards the end of cooking. Bought a loaf of sourdough bread and enjoyed! Thank you Nif for posting this recipe that I will be making again! Made and reviewed for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

      Whenever I taste a recipe that I know will become a staple in my household, I put it into my best-of-the-file. This recipe is being added! Delicious!! I used ground turkey and chicken broth instead of the beef versions and it worked beautifully. I put everything into the crockpot (on high) before going on errands with my daughter. When we got back, the house was filled with a wonderful aroma. This soup hit the spot on a cold fall day. The flavors are wonderful. Pure comfort food. Thank you!
