      Delicious! I had some brisket leftover and didn't feel like having sandwiches so when I saw this recipe I just had to try it. I am glad I did because it was fantastic. Thank you.

      This is a very nice soup, I made it with beef broth that I had from a pot roast and I omitted the garlic, as DH claims not to like it in soup what a fuss pot! The barley was nice and chewy just as we like it and the veg combination was perfect. I will be making it again as it looks like the weather isn't going to get any warmer for a while yet and this is a very warming comforting soup. Thanks for posting made for January warm up's 2011

      great soup! I went will all 10 cups beef broth and omitted the bouillon cubes, I also sauteed 8 cloves minced fresh garlic and 2 teaspoon crushed chili flakes with the veggies, I omitted the garlic powder, made as a take home meal for my DS and was enjoyed, thanks for sharing Lorrie!
