An easy classic beef barley soup with lots of flavor! Feel free to add in any extras of your choice, I like to add in chili flakes and jalapeno peppers for some heat, I also like to sprinkle some fresh grated Parmesan cheese on top of the soup in the bowl

    A good, easy, classic, crowd-pleasing soup. I made it for our teachers (we provide soup for our teachers every first Monday of the month) and out of the 5 choices, it was the first one gone! I used a mixture of beef stock, chicken stock and 1 can of consomme. Also added 1/2 can of corn and some fresh green beans just to get a few more veggies in there. I added a little more barley and stock than it called for since I needed it to feed a group. And a few splashes of Worchestershire (sp?). I enjoyed having hamburger vs. chunks of beef--made it seem more souplike than stew like. I will be adding this to my recipe file!

    I've made this at least six times now and finally thought to review it. We've had it with both the ground beef and leftover roast, either way it's a family favourite.The addition of the can of tomatoe soup just gives it that extra body and flavour. We're having it tonight with bakery rolls and saskatoon berry pie for dessert. Thanks for another awesome recipe Kittencal.

    Made this for our lunch yesterday and I followed the directions except for using leftover roast beef...wonderful. Another winner and one I will make again.
