Beef Barley Soup

Around our house this dinner is affectionately called Barf Beetley Soup thanks to a very confused two year-old nearly four years ago.  I promise you as gross as the nickname sounds the soup truly is a delicious family favorite.  Bonus to the deliciousness is the fact that the crock pot does all the work for you!
