Slow Cooker Beef and Barley Soup

Lately, I have been using my slow cooker at least twice a week for meals. As a result, I have been testing and trying a lot of new recipes. Soups is one thing that is great to make in the slow cooker. It just so happens, without planning it, I have shared 3 soup recipes in a row this week. So I guess I have soup on the brain.

This soup is another nice and hearty one. It includes chunks of beef along with barley – a great grain that can make your meal more filling while also adding nutrition. Of course, there is some tasty veggies in it too.
