Beef Barley Lentil Soup

Beef Barley Lentil Soup

"It's easy for Judy Metzentine to fill her slow cooker and forget about supper...until the kitchen is filled with wonderful aroma, that is! 'I've served this soup often to family and friends on cold nights, along with homemade rolls and a green salad,' she writes from The Dalles, Oregon. For variety, she suggests substituting jicama (a starchy root vegetable found in the produce department of many grocery stores) for the potatoes."

My hard-to-please husband adored this soup. I deviated very slightly to adjust it to ingredients I had on hand (left out carrots/celery) and it was still really good. Very easy recipe, simple in...

This was a healthy and easy soup to make. I added 2 bay leaves and garlic powder because it lacks a little flavor. Next time I'll leave the potatoes out since there's plenty of starch from the...

Good soup! I like that the ingredients are ones that you usually have on hand. I also added minced garlic to the meat and onions to add some extra flavour.

This is a wonderful beef soup! I like to make a lot and freeze it in ziploc bags. Great for winter or anytime!

My husband deviated from this slightly -- nearly doubled everything but the meat and onions, and didn't use lemon pepper but used black pepper. We did need to add water when we re-heated the nex...
