    CountryLady's Note:

    This is one of my favourite recipes for leftover roast beef - its delicious on a cold winter night!!If you don't have leftover beef, substitute with 1 lb of extra-lean ground beef, to be cooked with the onions. "Demi glace" or "au jus" can be found with the prepackaged gravies & sauces in the supermarket - you just won't get the same great flavour if you omit it!!

      Wow!! This was fantastic. I made it in my 6 quart Rival slow cooker and was able to get 14 servings from this recipe. My family of five all had two bowls. I did make a few adjustments. I addded 1 teaspoon of crushed garlic, used 3 large carrots, 2 stalks of celery. I got everything ready the night before and just plug in the slow cooker in the morning. Cooked it on low for 10 hours. The flavor was fabulous. Next time, I might add 1/2 cup of red wine. Thanks for posting.

      I LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. Beef-Barley soup is my all time favourite and always order it in restaurants when on the menu. I could never quite get a recipe I really "liked", until this one. Thanks for your posting. I made this (just to have around), and we ate the whole pot. Delicious.
