Autumn weather has hit Calgary…well, for this week anyway. Cool and rainy weather always puts me in the mood for soups and stews. I love that they are filling, easy and delicious. If I can make it in the crockpot, even better.
Beef and barley soup is something I never ate before I moved to Canada. My family never made it that I can remember. It was a favorite of Nana’s, though, so I learned to love it. Plus I know that it brings back pleasant memories for him. I decided that I needed to make it as soon as the weather turned cooler.
Well, here we are with the weather so I set out to find a recipe that worked for me. I made a bit of a mistake, though, I only bought a pound of stew meet. Next time I will use double the amount. In the recipe, I will record the amount that I will use next time instead of the amount that I used for this batch.

Perfect for a cool fall or winter evening. Just serve with a nice dinner bun and YUM!
