Granny's Beef and Barley Vegetable Soup

“Simmers all day and is mouth watering by dinnertime. Be sure that you use some sort of bone-in stew meat so that the marrow has a chance to flavor the broth. You can also substitute alphabet noodles or rice for the barley, but add them in the last fifteen minutes instead of where the barley is added. My kids -love- this soup.”
