Nice hearty soup, barley instead of potatoes even my Irish husband liked it. Did spice with extra helping of garlic and increased vegetables and a touch of hot sauce. Thanks for sharing base recipe??

What is the oxalate content of this recipe? I have to do low oxalate. Any suggestions for recipies? Dietitian comment: Sorry we do not have the analysis for oxalate content. A comparison of the ingredients to a list of low, medium and high oxalate foods reveals barley is a medium and celery is a high source of oxalate.

In making this recipe again, made changes as stated in previous comment but to snap up the flavor more, I added 1 cup of no salt tomato juice and 1 qt each of no salt chicken broth and beef broth. I also increased the mushrooms to 2 cups and added an extra stalk of celery. It really enhanced the flavor. Dietitian comment: The added tomato juice and vegetables contribute more potassium. These changes are not recommended for people on a lower potassium diet.

can you make this stew in the crock pot? Moderator comment: I have not tried it in a crock pot but it might work.

I made this today. Didn't have any barley, so the only difference in this recipe was that I added thinly sliced cabbage. It was delilicious! Thank you for the recipe.

Wow this sounds great. I cannot wait to try it. I have have been wanting beef stew for days but did not know I could eat it. I have all the ingredient! Will make it tonight! I will soak the pearl barly over night and pour off the water, add three minced cloves of fresh garlic,double the onion and add the chipolette Mrs.Dash to kick it up a knotch with diced jalepena , no salt but the juice of two fresh small lemons. Thx so much Happy St Patty's Month!!!

I did not use salt but I did increase the Mrs.Dash and put in more celery for added flavor. I got beef cubes at a local meat market and cut them even smaller than called for. This made a little more in prep time but the tenderness paid off.I doubled the recipe and put the rest in the freezer.

I thought barley was not dialysis friendly Moderator comment: Be sure you select pearled barley. 1/2 cup cooked contains 73 mg potassium and 43 mg phosphorus.

I love barley, so this should be delicious. I hope stew meat gets real tender.

My family loves this recipe. I found it makes a difference to use fresh garlic and all of the pepper called for in the recipe. It is great with venison as well.

Made this recipe for st Patty's Day and it was a BIG hit with pts. It did thicken nicely; you need to soak the pearl barley prior to cooking for this to occur. Some did say the recipe needs more salt, but those were the pts that typically eat more sodium than recommended. Delicious!

I have to agree very bland and didnt thicken like i thought it should

Disappointing! The barley made it taste more like hot cereal than a main dish. Very bland, even with added salt-free seasonings.
