'Denny's' Vegetable Beef Barley Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Niki S

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

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.

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.
