Always turns out great.

This was a great recipe. Of course I made a few adjustments being I feel recipies are a guide not a rule book. I seasoned the stew meat ahead added some Lea & Perrins and more salt and pepper since I had doubled the meat suggested. I also opted to leave the meat in big chunks. The second change was I added a ton of sliced crimini mushrooms. third I opted for beef stock instead of water. adjusted the measurement to allow for the extras. After the 2hr cooking I tasted the soup before adding the barley, it was good but I wanted abit more intensity so I added some chopped san marzano stewed tomatoes. Final result went over great with family and friends, next time I think I will add a little paprika, red wine and either fresh parsley or a few sprigs of oregano. Enjoy!

Yes! Wonderful, comforting soup! I used beef neck bones and used 4 cups of beef broth and 2 cups of water as suggested. I also added some precooked collard greens at the end. This one is definitely a keeper!

Came out great. Did as other suggested and used 4 cups beef broth and 2 cups water. Other than that made as directed. Came out a little thick and husband said maybe I should have added a little more water. Would definitely make again. Perfect on a fall or winter night

It came out great. Only thing I added was chili flakes. I think blending the onions, celery and carrot together would make it better and adding a bit more water when adding the barley would make it a bit more of a soup than a stew

Turned out really well. I, also, exchanged the water for beef broth.

Good stew on a rainy day. Didn’t like just adding water so used beef broth.

Very tasty! Substituted onions for onion powder and added cornstarch to be more like stew.

Turned out great. Added mushrooms and used beef broth. Next time I won’t use quite as much barley.

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.

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.

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.

Excellent! I added two beef bullion cubes, and about a half cup of diced stewed tomatoes to the recipe.

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.
