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!
Yummy soup! It is very cold here in the Northwest now and this soup was a perfect supper. I added twice the barley and it was delicious and so hearty! My husband who really doesn't like peas in any shape or form loved them in this wonderful soup....
