The eastern United States is having a winter of unbelievable snowfall and extreme cold, so much that when I talk to my friends back east I feel almost guilty for the ridiculously warm winter we've having in Utah. And all the talk of being dumped on by the snow makes me wish I could do something to help. Of course, there isn't anything I can do about the weather, but I do want to offer this Slow Cooker Beef and Barley Soup from Mel's Kitchen Cafe, which I promise will help you make it through a cold winter night wherever you are.
Mel says the soup’s homey, comforting flavors left her craving more. And when I read through the recipe, everything about this soup sounds just right to me. Even if it's not cold where you are, I bet this soup will be a hit on the dinner table.
