Beef, Barley and Veggies

Ok I have had a least one request a week for some of the meals I cook. I will try to post a recipe once a week. This is a old favorite. It's from the American Heart Association cookbook. I have made changes so it's not as printed in the book.

1- 1 1/2 lbs lean ground beef

1 potato per person
1 can of beef broth
1 tsp onion powder
1tsp garlic powder or garlic salt
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
pepper to taste

1/4 -1/2 c barley

1/2 bag of frozen mixed cut veggies ( green beans, pea, carrots)

cook ground beef until no longer pink.
remove excess fat
return beef to pan and add potato's -barley(wait if using quick cooking barley)
bring to boil over high heat. Then reduce heat to medium low, covered 8-10 minutes until potato's are tender

add frozen veggies and quick barley. Cooking until barley is tender about 10 minutes.

You can find barley in the rice/pasta section of the market and quick cooking in cereal section.

Enjoy and let me know how your family rates this recipe.

email me or call me if you have questions
