Beef, Barley, and Vegetable Soup
  ================================
    2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    1 pound beef stew meat
    1 pound meaty beef bones (such as beef shank bones)
    3 celery stalks, chopped
    1 large onion, chopped
    1/4 cup pearl barley
    4 cups water
    2 14 1/2-ounce cans beef broth
    1 28-ounce can diced tomatoes in juice
    1 10-ounce package frozen corn kernels
    2 cups frozen sliced okra
    2 small bay leaves
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    1 1/2 cups frozen peas
    1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce

  Heat oil in large pot over medium-high heat. Add stew meat and
bones; saute until beef is dark brown, about 8 minutes. Transfer beef
and bones to plate. Add celery, onion, and barley to pot. Saute until
onion is golden, about 15 minutes. Add 4 cups water, beef broth,
tomatoes with juices, corn, okra, bay leaves, and garlic powder.
Return beef and bones to pot and bring to boil. Reduce heat to
medium-low and simmer uncovered until beef is almost tender, about
1 hour.

  Add peas and 1 1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce to soup. Cover and
simmer until beef is tender, about 30 minutes longer. Season with
salt, pepper, and more hot pepper sauce, if desired.

Sounds delicious and just what I've been seeking!  Think you could dump all of the ingredients into the crock pot (after browning the meat) and cook it that way?
