Delicious soup. We all liked it. I made it just the way it says except I used some stew beef cut small and I cut the salt down to almost none.
I made this last night and family loved it! It's a whole yummy meal in a bowl.
I made this as written and it was a hit! I plan to make this recipe often and freeze some for cold winter days.
Nice hearty flavour. Like a couple of previous reviewers, I added a couple of diced potatoes, a dash or Worcestershire sauce, a sprinkle of thyme and a bay leaf. I also used ground beef as I was out of round steak. A definite make again on a cold day.
I and my Husband enjoyed this soup..Last night was the first time ever making it. The only changes I made was I added more pearl Barley and I used unsalted beef stock, I'm on a low sodium diet so I try to keep it as low as I can on my recipes. I would make this again.
I made this quite some time ago and we enjoyed it. It has WAY too much sodium in it for us though. I did not add the salt, used low-sodium broth, added Mrs. Dash Original to get some flavor without the salt.
Add a can of tomatos (cut-up) or a can of stewed tomatos,cut one can of broth if you want too.
I was looking for recipes that the whole household could eat while one of our roommates is on a liquid diet after gastric sleeve surgery. I added extra barley because my grocery store only had the very small barley. While it was filling for those of us who could eat the whole soup, to him it just tasted like plain beef broth straight out of the can. Will probably add some more seasonings, like garlic and bay leaves, and a little Worcestershire sauce if I ever make it again.
Even the kids liked this one!
