    RSL's Note:

    I have really been craving beef barley soup lately, but none of the ones I've tried have knocked my socks off. So I created this one for dinner this evening, taking elements from many different recipes. This is the result - which got raving reviews from my husband. The leftovers for this can easily be frozen for later. *UPDATE 12/15/05* I have made this quite a few times, and I have found that depending on the ribs you use, you will probably need to skim the fat off first, before proceeding with the rest of the soup.

      This soup works. I did dust the ribs with flour and browned them to the dark caramel stage before adding to the pot. Instead of water I used canned beef broth. I also added more vegetables. After the beef was tender I cut it off the bones and added it back to the broth with the vegys & barley. My favorite soup. I did not need the au jus mix this way.
