1 lb ground beef (optional: other clean meats such as venison)
1 big onion chopped
8 cups water
3 medium to big sized sweet potatoes, diced to bite sized pieces
3 -4 big tomatoes diced or 2 14 ounce cans tomatoes
Black pepper to your taste
1 tsp salt or more to your taste
Cayenne pepper to your taste
Chili pepper to your taste
Other herbs such as basil, oregano, parsely can also be added
2 cups cooked barley
- Using a big pot which will hold at least 8 cups of water, add meat and brown, then drain off any fat.
- Add chopped onion and sautée for a few minutes.
- Add water, diced sweet potatoes and tomatoes, salt and spices. Bring the water and ingredients to an almost boil and then quickly reduce heat to medium and simmer about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
- Add barley to soup and let simmer for maybe ten more minutes or until barley has acclimated to desired soup heat. Add more spices if you desire more spicyness. I like to add Braggs Amino Acids in my bowl just before eating.
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Master, and He shall lift you up. James 4:10
