Have I mentioned that I love my crock pot? I should give her a name, but I wouldn’t want to upset Nancy, my GPS. I figured since I use my crock pot a lot, that I would post my favorite recipes for Manic Monday- Let’s Go Make Some Noise. I mean Soup.
Oh, and enjoy!
- 2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter
- 1 pound beef stew meat, cut into 1/4- to 1/2-inch pieces
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt

- 2 cups water
- 2 (10 1/2-ounce) cans French onion soup*
- 1/2 cup medium barley
- 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1 cup frozen corn

Melt butter in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until sizzling; add beef and garlic salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beef is browned. Place beef and juices in slow cooker. Stir in all remaining ingredients.
Cover; cook on Low heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or High heat setting for 4 to 5 hours, or until meat is very tender. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
