Question: Did you read the other friend’s note above? Aha! I caught you. You read someone’s else disclosure. You’re so sneaky. Now you might have to be sneaky again. I was just gearing you up. Because for those of us with kids they just might turn their noses up at this one.
So here are some tips:
Mash the carrots and then add to the soup. They’ll have no idea that they’re in there.
Kids hate mushrooms? Leave ’em out or exchange them for some chopped zucchini or bell peppers.

I am sitting here wishing I could dive into that bowl of deliciousness – and I’m not even a huge fan of beef – but you managed to make it look so darn appealing! Happy Monday Melanie!

I am so happy soup weather is here! I love being all cozied up and smelling soup simmering away on the stove. This beef barley mushroom sounds delicious! Bet it’s packed with umami flavor : )
Paul Palansky says
This is a good recipe- easy and very flavorful. If you follow it exactly, you will get a very thick soup, almost solid. It can easily take up to 3 more cups of broth for this amount of barley. You will still get a very hearty, chunky, soup.
THanks Paul. Hope you enjoyed it!
