I made this with leftover eye round that I cubed and browned in oil. This was exactly what I was looking for in a beef barley soup. Simply delicious!!!
Quick to put together, easy to make and tastes delicious ust as written. Oh yeah,and good for you too. Make it often now I found this recipe!!!
This soup is awesome. I prepared it for my book club and they gobbled it down. I made just a couple of changes. I used lean ground beef instead of round steak and added a little thyme to give it a tad more flavor. This is definitely a five star recipe.

For good soup also add rotel tomatoes, mushrooms, more barley, diced potatoes, italian seasoning, bay leaf, garlic, cumin, ..... :)
I used olive oil instead of canola oil. My family doesn't like the taste of canola oil. Really good soup!
