Crock-Pot Meaty Mushroom Barley Soup

Crock-Pot Meaty Mushroom Barley Soup

OK folks this one can take a while so I am going to include a quick version as well.

1lb Stew Meat

3 Large Onions cut in a large dice

1lb carrots Sliced

½lb of Mushrooms Quartered

½ lb of beef bones

½ a bag of pearled barley

First I’ll give you the quick version. Dump it all in a crock-pot, season with salt and pepper to taste, cover it with water and let it cook for at least 4 hours.

Now I’ll give you the long version. This should all be done in this specific order and do not clean the pan between steps. This recipe is dependent on building layers of flavor. Brown the meat and bones in a skillet with a little olive oil on all sides. Remove the meat and bones into the crock-pot. In the same skillet sauté the onions until light brown then add the mushrooms to skillet with the onions and cook until the mushrooms are browned. Add the mushrooms and onions into the pot along with carrots and barley. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste, cover with water and cook on low for a minimum of 3 hours.
