Submitted by Cornelia Zell, www.pamperedchef.biz/visitcornelia

1 lb lean ground beef (can substitute ground turkey)
2/3 cup of barley, rinsed
2 cans Veg-All
24 oz V-8 or tomato juice
1 medium potato, peeled and cut in to ½” cubes
24 oz water
1 tsp Italian seasonings
½ tsp pepper
Add other seasonings to taste, such as salt, garlic, parsley

Brown ground beef in small stock pot. Drain grease. Add other ingredients and simmer til barley is cooked, about 45 minutes.
To keep ingredients on hand, brown the beef and freeze. You can buy a can of cubed potatoes, and that way you can make this very quickly. Serve with fresh fruit and a hearty bread for a complete meal.
