Slow Cooking Thursday

It's soup time!  Here's a good one for those cold nights!

Beef Barley Soup
1 tablespoon oil
1 pound lean boneless beef, cut into 1 inch cubes
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
3 ribs celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
3/4 cup barley
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon oregano
64 ounces beef broth
1 can tomato soup
Heat oil in large pot over medium high heat.  Add beef and garlic and saute 5 minutes or until beef is browned.
Transfer to a 5 quart slow cooker.  Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Mmmmmm, mmmmmm, MMMM!!!! And the eerie part of your post is, Bud and I were just talking about how long it's been since I've made anything with barley, just the other day. Now, I'm gonna hafta make it. This sounds easy and so scrumptious.
