Kelly's Slow Cooker Beef, Mushroom, and Barley Soup

Recipe by  

"I tinkered with a few recipes and came up with this one. I have tinkered with this recipe and added celery once and leeks another time, for me all it did was add to the chunkiness, not the flavor; but that's really up to your preference."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you have time you can brown the beef, but it's just as good without the beef browned because the slow cooker makes the beef very tender.

Delicious! I used tomato sauce, exactly like the recipe called for.

Really loved having this on the counter. Smelled so good! Tasted even better. Added a lot of celery for extra chunks. Two bay leaves are important to the taste of this dish. Pearl barley was so delicious to this soup.

This was very flavorful. I did not use the barley-I cooked it and rice on the side (I loathe barley) and let everyone add what the wanted and how much. There is no need to change a thing. Everyone loved it

We thought the barley was overpowering. Very boring taste. Followed the recipe- only addition was some red wine which didn't help. So disappointed!
