About this recipe: Meaty beef soup bones are combined with vegetables, barley and loads of garlic in this easy-to-prepare soup. Just give it 8 hours to cook in a slow cooker.
Took shortcuts. This was a tasty and filling. I changed it by using the beef cubes for stew instead of dealing with the bones. That one change saved me a lot of time. - 24 Jul 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. One of the best soups that I have made. I omitted the garlic, but it was still good with the other seasonings. Also, I added more beef to mine. - 24 Jul 2008
Next time, I will just use beef stock and put the barley in it. This recipe, I think, was unnecessarily time consuming. Tasty, though. - 24 Jul 2008
