It is amazing that only a few ingredients can turn into something so wonderful as this. Remember, as it sits, it will thicken.

I didn't have beef broth so I used water, 2 beef bouillon cubes and a packet of dry onion soup mix. I only used about a cup of barley because a whole bag seemed like way too much. I also added 3 cloves of finely minced garlic, 2 diced carrots and a 2 ribs celery diced. It came out great. As it thickened I just added more water and the soup was very flavorful.

My husband gives it 5 stars, but I didn't find it as tasty so it averages to 4 stars. It's even better if you follow the suggestions below of adding the veggies and only ONE cup of barley. For those that like a healthier option, be sure to use natural/organic broth as most brands contain MSG.
