"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."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Stir beef stock, tomato sauce, water, onion, carrot, barley, mushrooms, and garlic together in a slow cooker.
  2. Season beef chunks with garlic salt, salt, and black pepper; add to the beef stock mixture. Add bay leaves to the slow cooker.
  3. Cook on Low until the soup thickens and the beef is tender, about 6 hours.
  4. Remove and discard the bay leaves to serve.

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.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

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. Everyo...

This is a very hearty soup! I thought it was a little bland, so I added 1 T Worcester sauce, 1 t each of beef and mushroom "Better Than Bouillon" and 1/4 C red wine. Delicious paired with a cru...

A very hearty satisfying soup! I made this soup with things on hand. I was concerned that some reviewers said that the soup had "no flavor" so I went a little heavier on the onions (one medium)...

I have made this beef barley soup many,many times and we love it...did cut down barley to 3/4 cup. Thanks for a wonderful recipe that works every time.

This tastes amazing.

Made this the other day and it was great. I did add a good tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. Gave it a little bit of a kick as I am unable to eat onions, peppers, etc. Will definitely make ...
