Protein soup

1lb stewing beef
Garlic minced
Handful of baby carrots cut or not - whichever you prefer
2 stalks of celery chopped in half moons
1/2 red onion julienned
1/2 cup farro
1/4 cup lentils
1 package tortellini of your choice - I used spinach and cheese
3 cans of LOW SALT BEEF broth.

If pieces of beef are large, cut into bite size pieces and salt and pepper one side.
Brown beef on both sides- if you like beef well then leave it in the pot the entire time. If you like it medium then take beef out of the pot after it is browned and set aside.
Add carrots, celery, and onions.
Sauté for 2 mins
Add 2 cans of beef broth and scrape any meat bits from bottom of pan
Add farro
Add lentils
Bring to a boil THEN
Cook for 7 mins
Add 3rd can of broth and tortellini
Cool 7 mins
(If you removed meat add it back in with the tortellini)
