Tiffany's Hearty Beef Stew

There are just some things I like to throw together.  Part of the fun of cooking is doing it your way, so feel free to try this out. Take out or add in whatever it is you like.

1 lb.  hamburger
1 tsp. garlic
1 envelope of Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix
1 cup of Barley ( I really like barley! So I put in lots!)
5 small to medium potatoes peeled and diced (or be lazy and use canned ones*)
8 oz of frozen mixed veggies (green beans, carrots, corn & peas)
Pepper, garlic salt or salt to taste
1 packet of country gravy mix

Brown ground beef with garlic. I also like to sprinkle on some Lawry's garlic salt and pepper.   Drain well.  Put meat in a large pot, add 6 cups of water, soup mix and barley.  Let simmer about 40 mins, then add one more cup of water and your potatoes.  (This is a good time to put some buttermilk biscuits in the oven.)  Simmer another 10 mins. Add your frozen veggies and simmer an additional 10 minutes.  In a small bowl mix one envelope of country gravy mix with one cup of cold water and whisk well.  Slowly stir gravy mix into stew until you reach your desired consistency.  You don't have to use all of it, it's all about your personal taste. 

*If you choose to use canned potatoes add them at the same time you add the frozen veggies about 50 minutes into cooking time.
