Slow Cooker Beef Barley Soup Recipe

It has been a long time since I cooked anything with barley in it. This Beef Barley Soup Recipe caught my eye, it sounded really good with the cold temperatures we’ve been having here in upper Michigan this week. I have had a very busy schedule and decided it was time to get the slow cooker out again. This recipe has very little prep time and takes care of itself once it’s in the slow cooker. If you are looking for a real good Beef Barley Soup Recipe this is it. Enjoy

  1. This was delicious! My husband loved it and said it was one of my best! (thanks to you)
    I cut the recipe in 1/2
    I did add 1/4 cup more barley and one 4 oz can of mushrooms for and cut my meat into smaller bite size pieces. A keeper!!! I love how there is no garlic in it since hubby can’t eat garlic.
    Definitely going into rotation.
    Thanks so much for sharing it.
