Reviews for Hearty Beef and Barley Soup

"Add a can of tomatos (cut-up) or a can of stewed tomatos,cut one can of broth if you want too."
"I was looking for recipes that the whole household could eat while one of our roommates is on a liquid diet after gastric sleeve surgery. I added extra barley because my grocery store only had the very small barley. While it was filling for those of us who could eat the whole soup, to him it just tasted like plain beef broth straight out of the can. Will probably add some more seasonings, like garlic and bay leaves, and a little Worcestershire sauce if I ever make it again."
"Even the kids liked this one!"
