Great, needed to add some beef bouillon for more flavor though. Also added mushrooms

Very good recipe. I did add a few teaspoons of beef base to give it a tad more flavor. I will definitely make this again!

Pretty good. Added additional herbs and spices.

I tweaked it slightly, using ground beef, adding crimini mushrooms and a bit more garlic, but the fundamentals of this recipe are what make it a solid go to meal that hits the spot on a cold or rainy day.

Delicious soup, this has become a regular recipe in my repertoire, nutritious and delicious!
Bridget G. 20 Feb 2018
This was a great recipe. Only thing I added was some beef base to kick up the beef flavor a little.

Delicious! Great on a cold evening.

This is so delicious! I will never buy P*******o or C*******'s again. I did put one can beef broth plus 3 cups water. The instruction picture looked like the beef was dusted with flour along with the salt before browning. I did that, probably because I make stew so often. This made the broth a little hardy. I will only put 1 bay leaf next time, and I added around an extra 1/4cup barley. Thank you Skinny.

Great flavor. I used last night’s left over pot roast with excellent result
Lisa M. 31 Oct 2017
Delicious! My husband’s favorite soup.
Wanda Bonser 26 Oct 2017
Very tasty. I did use beef stock instead of water to give it a little richer flavor.
Nancy P. 25 Sep 2017
Rather bland, added quite a bit more salt and pepper. I use Diamond Crystal salt, however, and it isn't quite as salty as Mortons kosher so you do need more. I ended up using about four teaspoons all total. I put about a teaspoon of fresh ground pepper. I think perhaps half water and half beef broth would give it a better flavor. Maybe a parsnip too in addition to the carrots. Thyme might be nice too. Needs something to enhance the flavor, bottom line. Will tweak recipe next time.

So good easy recipe to follow and tasted so good
Barbara Logan 22 Aug 2017
Amazing! Thanks for sharing. My picky eaters say their mouths water just at the smell of it, whenever I make this recipe. Leftovers are hard to come by.
Joanne L. 18 Apr 2017
It was a perfect soup ! I made beef broth instead of just water and I deglazed with red wine. My whole family loved it and the picky eater even had second !
Victoria Miles 21 Jan 2017
I followed the recipe fairly closely. I used Epicure's Veggie Boullion to season the beef at the beginning instead of salt, as I wanted to be able to give some beef pieces to the baby. Overall it was pretty good. I liked it but the family thought it was okay.
Leanna Westbrook 16 Oct 2016
This is a very good and hardy soup and easy to make. Fantastic comfort food that will keep you warm on a cool day
Stan Klementowich 14 Oct 2016
Excellent! I added two beef bullion cubes, and about a half cup of diced stewed tomatoes to the recipe.
Shelley S. 12 Oct 2016
Delicious ! The only changes I made were to season the meat with some Worcestershire sauce while cooking. and to add some "Better than Broth" as I found the taste was too watery otherwise.
Donna V. 24 Aug 2016
This recipe is amazing! Even my boyfriend and his kids, who weren't crazy about beef barley 'loved it"! It was super easy and I doubled the recipe to have left overs. We enjoyed for days! Thanks!
Ashleigh R. 7 Jun 2016
Love love LOVE this recipe! I'm a huge fan of Beef Barley Soup and I'm particular about the taste and this is just like mamma used to make. Definitely my new favourite recipe.
Elizabeth A. 21 Mar 2016
This soup is delicious! Great for leftovers and very easy to make. My family enjoyed it and it was gone within two days!
