This turned out to be more of a stew than a soup, which I actually personally prefer, but if you want soup you will need to add more liquid. I made this as written, although the only tomatoes with garlic I could find were fire-roasted, but it still worked out well. This was great to leave in the crockpot all day Sunday while we worked outside and then come back in to a warm meal. I served it with Cheddar Cheese Muffins from this site. The leftovers re-heated well.

We liked all the fresh vegetables and the meat was flavorful. I did have to add 2 cups of beef broth because the barley soaked up the liquid even though it cooked for less time then required. ( 6 and 1/2 hours.) We also tried the spicy version and it was a bit too spicy for everyone in my family. I would definitely make the stew again. Next time, I will add 2 cups of beef broth and use just the tomatoes with the garlic.
