Beef and Barley

28 Mar

Tonight’s dinner was another slow cooker favorite.  Yesterday evening I placed all the ingredients in the crock pot, put the lid on and put it in the fridge.  This morning before leaving for work I turned it on low and ran out the door.

Ingredients:

2 lbs grass-fed black Angus beef tips from Harvest Hills

1 big can crushed tomatoes

1-2 cups of beef broth, add more liquid as needed.

1 cup pearl barley

Tomato paste

1 medium onion, chopped

2-3 cloves of garlic

salt, pepper, thyme

Place ingredients in crock pot.  Turn on low for 6-8 hours.  Come home and enjoy with a slice of Italian bread and a mixed green salad!

Calvin is too cool for school (and very interested in the delicious smells of beef simmering all day)

After dinner I whipped up some chocolate cookies for my sickly hubby.  He is feeling a little better but still nursing some annoying, lingering symptoms.

Happy Monday!
