    designerchef in Chicagoland, Illinois's Note:

    This recipe originated from the box of Mother's quick cooking Barley. I have added and changed a few items. My family likes this soup as I can make it from start to serving in about an hour and a half and it always tastes great. *** This photo was not submitted by designerchef, however is a good representation of what this soup actually looks like. Thanks for trying my recipes, and please don't take offense to my comments Acadia.***

    1. 1
      In a large stock pot, add olive oil, sliced mushrooms, chopped onions and chopped garlic. On a low heat, saute for about 5 minutes, turning and stirring occasionally, until tender.
    2. 2
      Add beef broth and water, soup bone, thyme, marjoram, and bay leaves.
    3. 3
      Stir and simmer on low.
    4. 4
      While this is simmering, trim all fat off of the sirloin steak and cut into small pieces. Add beef to soup and bring to a low boil for about 20 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove soup bone and any debris from bone. Add barley now and carrots. Continue simmering for another 30 minutes or until carrots are tender. If by chance the soup starts getting too thick, you can add a little more water.

      I can't even remember how many years I have been looking for this recipe. I only made it once and lost the recipe and have never found one that quite hit the spot. I felt obligated to write this review immediately after consuming two um...rather large bowls. I'm saving it in lots of different places and I know I can always find it here. You have made an old lady very happy.

      Superb delicious stew rather than soup. Hearty comfort food at its best. I added a tablespoon of red merlot wine. Thanks for posting! Made for the PAC Spring 2009 event.

      This soup was really disappointing. I looked through a lot of beef barley soup recipes, and I thought this one sounded great. I was really looking forward to a hearty, flavorful soup with a gravy-like broth. Instead, it was pretty bland with a broth like stock. I followed the recipe exactly except that I used fresh garlic. I don't think I would make it again, but I suppose if I did, I would eliminate the water, and maybe use some consume instead of the beef broth. I would increase the amount of herbs.
