Beef Barley Soup

This past Sunday was our first day back from vacation and I was craving a comfort type meal.  Something not too fancy but simple and tasty.  We had been dining out for ten days - which was great - but needed to get back to some basics.  Plus the weather was cooler and a soup recipe just seemed to fit the bill.

I've made this soup before but changed up the recipe some and really like how this version turned out.  The simple part is after browning the meat, the remaining ingredients (minus the barley) gets added to the pot and simmers for 50 minutes.  The barley (quick style) goes in for the last 10 minutes.  Just need to stir it a couple times while it cooks - so also no fuss!

So, what do you crave after coming back from a vacation?  Do you wish you were still eating out?  Do you have a favorite home-style meal that you prepare?  Or do you feel like eating nothing and detoxing??  I was in between a homey meal and detoxing!
