This is the first review I have ever written where I could almost say "see other reviews" but I made the soup in almost the same manner they did. I used turkey instead of ground beef, skipped the salt in everything, including adding canned tomatoes with no-salt added. I added extra barley and not too many potatoes. I did also add 1/2 c frozen peas because I'm always sneaking in more veggies and I served each bowl with a dollop of sour cream in the middle. It was great.
Have many beef barley soup recipes but with the addition of the potato, I just had to try it. It is now a favorite that we will make often. It is just wonderful!!!
I have made this soup several times. I am a former soup-hater, but this has reformed my tastes. I use ground turkey instead of the beef and add extra barley at my husband's request. This soup is also guest-approved and I wouldn't hesitate to serve it to company again.
I made this as directed (except my pepper was red because we like them better, and skipped the salt in everything), and it was really good. The only change I will make is to use half the potatoes and twice the barley.
