How to Make BEEF BARLEY LENTIL SOUP

Step-by-Step

  1. Put the meat into a 5-qt. slow cooker. Layer with onion, potatoes, celery, carrots, lentils, and barley.
  2. Combine the water, bouillon, salt and lemon pepper; pour over vegetables. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until vegetables and barley are tender.
  3. Add the tomatoes; cook 2 hours longer.
  4. Can use ground beef instead of stew beef. Brown beef with onion before putting in slow cooker.

    If you have to leave for more than 6 hours, you could add the tomatoes at the start, but use chopped tomatoes instead of stewed.
