Beef Barley Soup! NOT Hot Dogs....

When dinner time comes and your thinking to yourself..... what will I make? Maybe  we'll just have hot dogs tonight, I say get up, chop a veggy or two and make some soup instead! Soup is easy, and oh so good for you.

 I have a Beef Barley soup recipe I made tonight that I want to share with you all, it is hearty, and very tasty. We'll leave this little hot dog alone, he's too cute to eat anyway!

This was delicious...

Beef Barley Soup

1 1/2 to 2 lbs lean ground beef
8-10 cups Beef Stock I use Kitchen Basics, or water
you can start with 8 and adjust to how thick or thin you want it.
2 Cups corn
1 - 1 1/2 Cups chopped Celery
1 Green Pepper Chopped
1 large onion chopped
3 medium potatos chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
1 1/4 cups Barley
2 Cups Carrots
1 15 oz can diced tomatoes
1 28 oz can crushed tomatos
1/4 cups Ketchup
2 bay leaves
1/2 tsp pepper
salt or seasoning salt of choice to taste
2 tsp basil or more!
1 TBS. sugar, or to taste

In a skillet, brown the meat, drain off fat. In the soup pot add all chopped veggies, saute for a few minutes in a tbs. or so of oil until they soften a bit. Add ground beef and all other ingredients, bring to a boil then heat on med/low for 1 hr. stirring every now and then . Serve with crusty bread and enjoy!
