Beef Barley Soup


This has been a family favorite for quite a while. It's a low sodium adaption of a recipe I found at busycooks.about.com. Unfortunately, my version doesn't quite fit the 20 minutes to fix that theirs did because I can't find quick cooking barley here. But doing it in the slow cooker makes it even easier.

1 lb Ground Beef
1 lg Onion,Chopped
8 oz Mushroom,Chopped
1 cn Low Sodium Chicken Broth
4 c Water
2 T Low Sodium Beef Bouillon
1 c Barley
1/2 t Garlic Powder
2 t Worcestershire
1/2 t Thyme
1 c Carrot,Shredded
1/2 t Black Pepper

Brown ground beef and onion. When beef is almost done add mushrooms and cook a few minutes more. Transfer to slow cooker, add remaining ingredients and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.
