Beef Barley Soup

A garnish of sour cream and chopped dill gives this hearty soup a Russian flavor. Serve with dark rye bread for a complete meal.

Satisfying and Richly Flavored
November 3, 2013
We made this using frozen cooked farro and it was awesome. I added extra broth (about 4-6 cup of beef broth and 2 cups of water) since the other reviewers said it was so thick. The flavors are rich and meaty and so delicious. Definitely add fresh dill anbd yogurt at the end. It makes it!! I will absolutely make this again.
Pros: Yield, Good Value, Easy, Kid-Friendly, Healthy, Appearance

Perfect dish for cold days
October 17, 2013
This is not first time I cook the soup. Instead meat with bone, I use meat for stew. Taste rich. It is a good idea for cold weather.
Pros: Good Value, Easy, Healthy
Cons: Taste

Cooks long, worth the wait
February 14, 2013
Perhaps it's just me but I find myself always reducing the amount of meat in WS recipes. Instead of 3lbs bone-in, I used 1lb of high quality stew meat. Since my meat was boneless, I added the barley to the first boil which reduced the cooking time by an hour. Also, I found myself constantly adding more water throughout the cooking. When it was ready, I served it with a dollop of mild goat cheese instead of the sour cream. It was definitely a crowd pleaser! I think it could easily serve 8 as well. Will share with friends and make it again.
Pros: Easy, Will Make Again
Cons: Lengthy
