Beefy Vegetable-Barley Soup

This is a great slow cooker recipe, the type that is pretty much ready for you when you get home from a long day at work.

Beefy Vegetable-Barley Soup
1 1/2 lbs. stew meat
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup uncooked barley
2 cans (14 oz.) beef broth
1 cup water
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. marjoram
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed

Cut stew meat into bite-size pieces. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker, except vegetables. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours.

Add mixed vegetables. Increase heat to high. Cover and cook 20 to 30 minutes, until vegetables are crisp tender. Serves 6.
