Tomato Beef Barley Soup
When my children were young, I needed a soup that everyone would eat—something filling but also something kids would enjoy. My sons really liked barley soup from a can, so I decided to try making it myself. My boys are now young adults, and this is one of the first things they ask me to make when they come to visit. —Karla Johnson, Winter Haven, Florida
