A hearty soup with many great flavors; one of my husband’s favorites.
If you'd like to use fresh veggies, add them with the rest of the ingredients in the beginning. Don't let the small amount of barley fool you; it will be enough!
Combine meat, broth, onion, garlic, basil, bay leaves, red wine, pepper, and water. Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours or high 4-5 hours.
Add frozen veggies and barley, stir to combine. Cover and cook on high 45-55 minutes, until barley is cooked.
