Beef Barley Soup

Serves: 8 

Vegetables, barley, and beef make this soup a full meal in itself.

1 medium potato, cubed
1 medium onion, cubed
1/2 bag frozen mixed vegetables
1/2 teaspoon dried garlic powder
1/2 pound boneless beef cut into cubes
1 cup quick cooking barley
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
cracked pepper to taste 

1. In large pot add water, beef bullion cubes (dissolved in a small amount of the water, heated in separate cup), and all the ingredients except the barley. Cook approximately 30 minutes at a minimum heat, or until meat is fully cooked and potatoes are soft.

My best friend is always telling me how good barley is and I had yet to try it until this recipe came down the pike.  The soup was easy to make and really made a ton!  I used a few frozen veggies and then threw in fresh carrots, broccoli, and potato.  I feel like there was something else, too, but maybe not. I thought about celery, but didn't end up putting it in.
