Beef Barley Stew

  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 C sliced celery
  • 1/3 C chopped onion
  • 1 3/4 C water
  • 2 tsp reduced sodium beef bouillon granules
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 C quick-cooking barley
  • 1 can (14.5oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
1. In a large saucepan, cook the beef, celery and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are tender; drain.
2. Stir in the water, bouillon, chili powder, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Stir in barley. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until barley is tender. Stir in tomatoes; heat through.

Robyn's notes: this time I was able to find the quick-cooking barley, which made this recipe go quickly.
