    Sorry, but this was a serious disappointment. Followed your recipe precisely. What I wound up with looked nothing like your pictures. The tomato flavor from the tomato paste and the diced tomatoes job overwhelmed everything else, so what I wound up with was a chunky tomato soup. Not what I was looking for. I love beef barley soup, but this wasn’t it.

    Cut barley to 1/3 cup, only 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, 2 teaspoon thyme, bay leaf, and 2 beef shanks for extra marrow. Richer beef broth. Turns out very good. Usually double the recipe and but some in glass canning jars and freeze for the winter.

    Thanks for a healthy recipe. I’d like to prepare it before the gym. Interesting, how much calories in it? As for me, one of the reasons for cooking this dish it’s that it includes carrot. As it well known, carrot improving eyesight. For me, as for online essay writer it’s very important.
    I’m very grateful to you.

    Thank you for this recipe, I love to cook soups, I have a lot of memories from my childhood. As a child, my grandmother and mother, preparing soup for dinner, usually said — meat soup, added rice or vermicelli. Or chicken soup, again-with rice or any cereal. Admit, having heard about meat soup, unconsciously always expected, that soup consists of meat and broth. Everything else in it seemed out of place and superfluous. As it turned out, meat soup made of meat only exists. Moreover, there are many such soups. My favorite meat soup is French clarified broth or very rich and salted broth with a pie — consomme, cooked from chicken or beef. A good meat soup is obtained from not very young beef with bone. Of course, veal tender and softer, but normal beef with prolonged boiling gives a fine dense broth, which is ideal not only for a simple soup of meat, but also for red borsch or Georgian soup kharcho. Very good broth is obtained from beef ribs or brisket — they have a lot of meat and bones that provide both.
