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
This is one of my top five eating well recipes. We make it all the time. Healthy but flavorful and you don't feel deprived. I add a little garlic (we love garlic) and also use New York strip because we typically double or triple the recipe for leftovers and the New York strip really adds a lot of rich flavor. This is a great recipe and makes you feel good to eat it.
Hi I made this soup as the recipe stated and found it to be very bland. So I tweaked it a bit and it turned out amazing. First I added a cup of Barley rather than 3/4. I also added beef bouillion cubes to taste as it wasn't beefy enough for me. Addtional barley and beef bouillion (Knorr) made it must better! I would recommend this recipe with tweaking!
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.
Awesome soup on a cold day! Quick and healthy! Great soup! Easy and quick to make! The flavor are complex for how quickly it cooks! My boyfriend And I have both made it and love it each time we make it!
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.
