Roasted Beef, Mushroom, and Barley Soup

Roasting concentrates the flavors of the beef and mushrooms, which gives this hearty barley soup a deep, rich character.

    I love this but would change two things. First, use beef broth. Why would you want beef soup to taste like chicken? Second, only roast the meat and mushrooms for 20 minutes. Any longer will just dry it out. Also, make sure to pour all the roasting pan juices into the pot and then deglaze the pan with some hot broth and pour that in the pot as well. I also agree with others that more olive oil is needed.

    I agree that this soup/stew had a hearty flavor with surprisingly few ingredients, it was incredibly easy to make and was just so delicious. It created a truly satisfying meal that it will be added to our regular list I'm very happy to say. I loved it and I'm already dreaming of eating the left overs. For the readers who commented it was dry, I used liberal amounts of olive oil and had no problem. One just has to use more, the recipe is too stingy with it. Man, I loved this soup.

    This soup is delicious. I've made it a number of times and it's so easy. I agree with one of the other reviewers, so few ingredients for so much flavor! Give it a try.

    Fabulous and easy! My family loved it, including my eight year old and my not-too-big-on-meat sixteen year old. I added half a bay leaf and 1/2 tsp. of dried thyme while simmering. This is now a family favorite!

    This has an amazing amount of flavor for so few ingredients. We used pearled barley and loved it! It will be a great base for lots of variations, and is one of our new favourites, though in the future I'll be cutting the ingredients into smaller pieces to make it easier to eat.

    My husband doesn't like barley so I exchanged it with a package of Long grain rice & wild rice minus the seasoning mix and used beef tenderloin . it is fabulous.

    Good flavor, but the meat turns out like shoe leather.

    Pretty great! I couldn't find quick cooking barley so I used regular, cooking it seperately and added more than the receipe asked was great! And so easy to prepare.
