"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Delicious! I used tomato sauce, exactly like the recipe called for.
Smelled great but lot of timely prep and ingredients for a bland, "muddy" tasting soup.
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
This tastes amazing.
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.
I don't usually add reviews but I think this is a good recipe but needs to have less barley. It was very starchy. I would do everything the same but with half the barley. It smelled delicious all day but was a little disappointing when I didn't need a spoon. I will try it again but with half the barley.
UPDATE: after writing my original review my husband and I heated the leftovers up for lunch and ended up throwing it away. It had a very weird almost slimy texture to it. Maybe the barley breaking down a bit too much overnight. Very unpleasant. I'd possibly make this again (with changes) but definitely not save any leftovers.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: Made this yesterday and my family thought it was ok. If I make it again I'll add some spices or heavily season the beef and then sear first to add more flavor. I would also add celery. I found the recipe as written to be tasty but a bit bland. I'll make it again with subtle changes and see how it goes. It sure made the kitchen smell great!
