Absolutely the best vegetable beef soup I have ever made!! I stayed pretty true to the recipe. I had a hot grill available the night before I was going to make this soup, so I seasoned the chuck roast with salt & pepper and seared it on both sides on the grill. I placed the roast in the bottom of the crock pot and added all ingredients except the barley and placed in refrigerator overnight. I left the carrots & celery in larger chunks so they would not break down. I placed the crock in the pot and set it to low before going to work the next morning. When I got home about 9½ hours later, I removed the chuck (it was in 4 large pieces) and added the barley. While the barley was cooking, I shredded the beef. It was cooked perfectly, fork tender and moist, but not falling apart and the vegetable in the larger chunks were tender without disintegrating. I added the beef back to the pot and dinner was ready! Thanks for the great recipe!!!
