Beef Barley Soup

I’ve been making this recipe for Beef Barley Soup for well over 30 years. It’s an easy and delicious recipe. Make this recipe with beef-bouillon cubes per recipe directions, carton of beef broth or to really make this super duper delicious, use homemade beef broth. I’ve made this recipe using all three and one thing is for certain, this soup is delicious. Homemade beef barley soup is a zillion times better than any canned soup. Plus it’s easy to make!
