MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2013

This is a good soup, for some of the water I used beef broth, and I also put in a bay leaf celery and some frozen peas towards the end of cooking time. This is a recipe you can't mess up if you add more or less vegetables. I like a lot of potatoes,so I add more, if I have what in my book I call a large potato I may only use 2 of them if I think they look a little small I will use more, it is just a matter of taste.

I have a major problem with small medium and large when listed in a recipe for a vegetable. What size is a medium potato? It seems that most people have never heard of scales. You can use them to tell exactly how much of something is needed. That way no one makes beef barley potato soup or doesn't have enough potatoes. Scales are cheap and you can get electronic scales at walmart for a very reasonable price.

I took out the carrots and added peas and corn and it was really good. The entire family enjoyed. I would probably add more barley next time.

 The green you see are green onions..Alot of recipes dont add it as an ingredient because it is usually used as a garnish.
