we loved it I made this last night and it was good. I could not find quick barley, so i used normal barley so i had to cook it for an hour. My husband begged me to add white potatoes so i did. It was filling and good. Pros: i couldn't find quick barley Cons: easy

easy and good Had this forever and finally made it, it was great! My quasi picky fiance also loved it. My own mistake, I should have sauteed the celery a little longer bc it was kind of crunchy, and I should have taken the meat off a minute before, but these were my issues as I was afraid of overcooking and undercooking the meat. Still, so good! Made the kitchen smell great. Pros: pretty easy, perfect size for 2 people and 2 leftover serving

delicious comfort soup on a cold winter day in Wisconsin we used regular cooking barley and then added 2 more cups of beef broth and tomato past.

Perfect for a snowy day. Made this on a snow day so had to use what was on hand. This meant I used chicken broth and had no celery. I used extra spices and I admit I made small dumplings and added them. It was fabulous! I did cook it a little longer after I added the meat. It gets better and better.

Much better the next day I felt the soup needed more punch so I added a dried seasoning mix containing salt, shallots, garlic, onion and chives and let the soup cook for another hour after adding the beef back to the pot. Pros: Comes together quickly Cons: but isn't very flavorful after the short cooking time suggested.

Comfort food. Mmmmm. Hit the spot on a cold winter's night. My husband raved and raved. I only substituted a bay leaf for the thyme but kept everything else the same. I can't wait to try some of the other recipes in this month's magazine.
