A number of years ago I received a Lions Clubs' cookbook entitled "Kitchen Traditions".   The book contains a large variety of recipes which seem easy to make and includes basic ingredients.  I have made this recipe for hamburger barley soup numerous times and always enjoy it.  I have made some modifications to the original recipe including using ground bison for the hamburger.

1 lb hamburger
1 clove of garlic, minced
6 cups water
1 large can of tomatoes
1 large onion, chopped
1 to 2 stalks celery, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
1 potato, finely chopped
1/2 cup pearl barley
1/4 cup catsup
1 beef bouillon cube
1 tsp dried basil
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste

In a large soup pot brown the meat,  Drain off the fat.  Add the garlic, onions, carrots, celery and potato.  Saute for several minutes.  Add the rest of the ingredients except for the salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil and let simmer, covered, for two hours.  Season with salt and pepper and remove the bay leaf.  Makes 6 servings.
