I thought soup was excellent. Two suggestions: when adding the barley to the crockpot, add some hot broth, at least a cup - that way the barley doesn't soak up the fat from the roast. I let the barley mixture sit in the fridge overnight and was able to take all of the fat off the top once it solidified. I would also use diced tomatoes, just because my husband doesn't like whole tomatoes, and also I needed to add more water and bouillion, otherwise it would have been porridge like. Fantastic recipe, will make again for sure. I used pearl barley, but my uncle told me I should have used pot barley, anyone else have a recommendation? The recipe makes a lot, I have 3 containers that I have frozen for quick meals at a later date.
