Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 30 mins

This easy to make soup is VERY close to the vegetable beef barley soup they serve at Denny's.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 lb ground beef
  • 12 bag frozen mixed vegetables (You know, the kind with the carrot cubes, and green beans, and lima beans, etc.)
  • 14 cup barley (approximately)
  • 1 (32 ounce) can beef broth
  • 1 (14 ounce) candiced tomatoes


  1. Brown ground beef, add vegetables, tomatoes, barley, and broth.
  2. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Let it simmer for at least 30 minutes.
  4. This is great for a crock pot, as the longer it cooks, the better it is.

A nice basic soup recipe that needs more seasoning. I added onion and garlic to the ground round, V-8 juice, and more barley. These additions were nice but the soup is still a bit bland tasting. Close to Denny's soup but not quite there.

Taste was ok, but not even remotely close to Denny's soup. I LOVE their soup and this was not it. Still, this recipe was ok, but I'd say needs a little something.

This was just what I needed for dinner last night. I didn't have mixed veggies so I put in a little corn, a little green beans and a little peas. Worked great. I froze the leftovers.
