I did this the crockpot way. I cooked the beef in beef broth for 5 hours on high (did not use water/bouillon cubes--just a lot of broth). Let the beef cool and shredded then sat the broth and beef into the frig overnight so I could skim the fat off the broth the next morning. Then I added everything else--cooked another 4 hours (adding the barley the last hour). It was my soup for crockpot Monday at work. I made a double batch---someone unplugged the crockpot because there was not one drop left! It is a fantastic soup.
