In a medium saucepan, bring to a boil, water, beef bones, barley, carrots and garlic. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 1 1/2 hours.
Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Remove bones, meat and carrots. (you won't find the garlic :) ) Shred the meat and return to the broth mixture. Discard the carrots, bones and any fat.
Refrigerate the broth to allow any remaining fat to harden. This makes it easier to remove. At this point, you can either continue on with the recipe, or the broth may be refrigerated up to 3 days. You could probably freeze it as well, but I never have.
Once the fat has been removed, return the broth to the stove and heat to boiling.
Add salt, pepper, Bovril, potatoes, onion, egg noodles and mixed vegetables. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, approximately 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
