  • “One of our favourite soups, beef barley, this was a good one.I must say though that I changed a bit of method type of ingredients.I used fresh veggies, celery, carrots and rutabega with the mushrooms.And I used regular barley, had no quick cooking barley also use beef broth instead of water.Turned out delicious, I put the veggies and barley in for the last hour.We loved the additon of mushrooms to beef barley soup.”
