Don't think I'll make this again as it didn't have much flavor to me. I used fresh garlic instead of "granules" but didn't think that would make much difference.
Best beef/barley soup I have ever made. My father-in-law eats soup every day, so I need a variety for him. He also gives 5 stars. I usually do not like beef soups - seem to have a kind of bitter after taste to me. Brown sugar-that's the secret to a mellow beef soup. We will have it for dinner + grilled cheese sandwiches because the whole family loves it! Thanks!!
I made this last night. It was beautiful and really easy to make. Thank you!
This is a keeper, I made a mistake and accidently used diced green tomatoes with green chiles. Mine was quite the spiced soup. My family loved it. Will retry without the chiles.
This is a keeper. Fast to prepare and ready in less than 30 minutes using 1 box of Quick Barley (11 ounces) that cooks up in 10 minutes. I used diced tomatoes this time but when I fix it again I'll use the puree. Thanks for this hardy, thick and delicious recipe. I have several other of your recipes in my cookbook that I need to try.
