RATINGS & REVIEWS


HEARTY VEGETABLE BARLEY SOUP (contains beef) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Up Your Winter A great and super hearty soup. We love to take it on long distance kayaking trips by packing it in our thermoses. I have made this recipe at least a hundred times. Please note that two ingredients are missing from the web recipe compared to the box recipe. You do need to add a 14.5 can of diced tomatoes and 2 beef boullion cubes. I always add a few more bay leaves and sometimes use roast beef instead of hamburger. Either is super tasty. A favorite of my family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from missing an ingredient! I have made this in the past, very similar to recipe on box, but when I was finished, it looked like water with vegetables, meat and barley. I believe this recipe is missing the bouillon! I added some beef bouillon and it was wonderful.
