Another GREAT recipe for the crock pot! This was delicious & the barley cooked up just perfectly. I will really be looking forward to making this during those fall & winter months. If you are looking for a tasty, high fiber recipe this one if great (1 1/3 cup is 6 grams of fiber).
1 1/2 # stew meat (I always buy whatever roast or steak is on sale & cut it myself)
1/2 c onion, chopped
1/2 c uncooked medium pearl barley
3 1/2 c beef broth
1 c water
1 tsp dried thyme leaves
1 tsp dried marjoram leaves
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
12 oz bag frozen mixed vegetables
Spray the inside of crock pot with cooking spray. Cut beef into bite size pieces. In crock pot, mix beef & all remaining ingredients, except frozen vegetables. Cover. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Stir in mixed vegetables. Cover & cook additional 20-30 minutes.
