my family said it was the best soup I ever made. I cooked the meat a lot longer by it's self so it was really tender and I used fresh mushrooms. They can't wait til I make it again - 05 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made some changes-I cooked stew meat in the crock pot with a package of brown gravy mix and 2 cups of water. Once that was about done, I cooked quick barley (1cup) according to the package directions. I put the barley, parsley, salt, etc all in the crock pot with the meat to finish for about an hour. - 04 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
