Family Delight Soup

3 quarts water
1 cup dry soup mix
1 1/2 lbs. beef stew meat cut into 1/2 inch cubes or 2 (15 oz.) cans of beef chunks
1/2 lb. salt pork
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram, crushed
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 cups fresh spinach, chopped
2 cups sliced celery
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed basil
croutons (optional)

Combine water, soup mix, beef cubes, salt pork, salt, basil, marjoram, and pepper. Bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer until peas and barley in soup mix are tender, about 1 hour. Remove from heat and discard salt pork. Add spinach and celery. Cover and cook until celery is tender. Serve with croutons.
