    This recipe is YUMMY!!!! I made it on a Friday, but then my husband walked in with a pizza for supper. So we had the pizza instead. (I did sample the soup and it was good but a little thin and needed some additional spices. I added some thyme and garlic powder - much better.) Anyways, I put the soup away to eat the next day. On Saturday when I took it out, it was way thicker and was REALLY GOOD. Everybody loved it. There was one serving left over which I had for breakfast on Sunday, and I must say that Sunday was the best day for it yet. The tate and texture were outstanding. One thing I might do differently next time would be to use round steak cubes rather than chuck so the meat would be more tender. This was no fault of the recipe, I just like softer beef in my soups. I will definitely be making this again.  -  13 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Just wonderful! I did add a bit of red wine,fresh thyme, bay leaf, minced garlic, and carrots to the beef broth. I also browned the beef before I put everything into the crockpot. Thank You!  -  11 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Great Thick soup that was easy to prepare. Various vegies can be added to taste(carrots,celery,etc) and additional broth or reduced barley for a thinner soup. Garlic and thyme are great additions.  -  21 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
