Nif's Crock Pot Beef Barley Soup

READY IN: 5hrs 30mins
Recipe by Nif_H

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.
