    Chippie1's Note:

    This is a really easy and good soup. Add more beef broth if looking for a very beefy taste and thicken up with cornstarch & beef broth. My family just loves this dish and ask for it frequently. The main thing to remember is to NOT STIR the soup until close to the end of cooking time.

      This is excellent stuff! I have my own recipe for beef barley soup posted here, and I actually like this one much better than mine - less work too! A few changes I made - I didn't measure the veggies, just chopped up a bunch and dumped them in. I used 3 stalks of celery, 4 carrots, and about 3/4 of a very large onion leftover from last night. I had no green pepper in the house so I skipped that. I added a package of au jus mix because I always do to beef and barley soup, it just adds something to the taste I love. Because of that, I skipped the salt. Also, I used 4 c. beef broth and about 2 c. water, and skipped the beef boullion, both since I used more broth than called for and to keep the saltiness down because of the au jus. I opted not to thicken it - it was just right for us. This filled my 5 qt. crock to the brim - I'm so glad I didn't try to use my 4 qt.! I think I will actually replace my recipe with this one, so good!

      This is a good soup. I used chicken broth and only 3 cups of water since I wanted a more stew-like consistency. I added some freshly ground pepper just before serving too. It made 4 generous portions and was very tasty. BF loved it. Thanks so much.

      I followed this recipe to T, adding fresh chopped mushrooms. There is no where near enough barley. I let it cook for 13 hours on low, and added 2 T of cornstarch hoping that would thicken it and the barley might puff up more. Now I am cooking another cup of barley on the stovetop to add to the crockpot. If I made this again I'd use at least a cup less of water, and I'd put it in at least 3/4 cup barley.
