4 or 5 medium size white skinned potatoes
2 cans diced tomatoes w/ garlic and onions
1 can whole kernel corn
1 can sliced carrots
1 can french cut green beans

Cook for about 17 – 20 minutes. Leave water in with meat.

Drain off liquid from vegetables, then add to with Barley to meat and potatoes.
Sprinkle in some Italian seasoning.
Cook on medium heat with lid off for about 15 minutes

I usually eat on this for several days. The barley and potatoes will often absorb the liquid. so when I reheat a bowl full I add a little water and perhaps a half teaspoon of butter. This makes a huge amount of soup and you can freeze some.
