    Molly53's Note:

    A zesty twist on beef barley soup absolutely perfect for warming up a dreary day from the Barley Foods Council. Pearl barley may be cooked ahead of time, placed in an airtight container and refrigerated or frozen for up to a week. For best results, bring refrigerated or frozen cooked barley to room temperature before using.

      This was very yummy!! I don't use cilantro & cumin much so this was a nice/different taste for me. I didn't have green chilies so I used a little chili powder instead. Thanks for the recipe!!!

      This is a very good soup. I didn't have any carrot but it was just fine without. I think I might go have a bowl now. I made this in 86 degree weather because I was wanting soup so bad!
