Barley Soup

This is mine and my  mom's favorite soup.  

1 lb ground beef
1 onion, chopped

Brown beef and onion together.

5 cups water
1 can diced tomatoes
4 medium carrots
2 stalks celery
1/4 catsup
3 beef boullion cubes
2 tsp season salt
1 tsp basil
bay leaf
1/3 cup pearl barley
1 med size can tomato sauce

Optional: potatoes, corn, or use stew meat

Add everything else to browned meat.  Cook until veggies are tender or until barley is done.  The barley I buy usually takes at least an hour to cook.
