Beef & Barley Soup

What to make on the first snowy day of the winter? Homemade soup with homemade rolls. Very yummy!

1 lb stewing beef - cut into small pieces
8 cups water
3 tbsp beef boullion powder
2 carrots - cut into small pieces
2 small onions, chopped
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen corn
3 stewed tomatoes (from can) - squeeze into small pieces (crush) into soup using your hand
2/3 cup dry barley
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp dried thyme
3 whole cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Spray a large soup pot with a non-stick cooking spray. Cook cut up beef in soup pot until there is no pink left (medium heat). Add water and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Add vegetables and remaining ingredients. Stir. Let soup return to a boil before turning stove down to minimum heat. Allow soup to simmer for at least 3 hours before serving.
