This soup was so delicious and so easy. I made a few changes to the recipe. Before I browned the meat I sprinkled it with paprika, montreal seasoning and salt and pepper. After I browned the beef cubes in oil I simmered it for about an hour in a cup of water and a 1/2 cup of red wine (I used cab. sav). I sauteed all the veggies in butter,except the mushrooms which I added after the broth, then added the meat, three cans of beef broth (about 6 cups) and barley. I doubled the amount of barley which I pre-soaked in a half cup of water. I also added another half cup of wine along with sea salt, pepper, paprika, dried oregano and basil. The soup had so much flavor, I think the wine was the key ingredient. I added the sour cream in the first bowl and once I stirred it in it had a really unappetizing look, I skipped it in the second bowl and thought it was better without it. YUM!
