About this recipe: Meaty beef bones provide delicious flavour in this traditional warming soup with carrots, turnips, celery and barley.
Feel free to use lamb necks or beef shin rather than beef soup bones.
Used different ingredients. This ended up very tasty, with only a few changes. I put in a stock cube when it ended up being very bland. I think that if the bones were roasted as I have seen in other recipes, it would have worked more to my taste. But the basic soup was delicious! - 24 Jul 2008
While this is a very good soup, it's not Scotch Broth. Scotch Broth is and always has been made with Lamb, usually lamb neck bones or lamb shanks. - 17 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The soup required more seasoning than was stipulated... and i added more carrots and potatoes to thicken it up a bit. Other than that it was good. - 18 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
