Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 pound hot breakfast sausage (I prefer Purnell's if you can find it)
    2 small onions, chopped
    4 potatoes, cubed
    4 celery stalks with leaves, sliced
    4 carrots, sliced
    3/4 cup tomato paste
    1/3 cup barley, uncooked
    1 1/2 t. worcestershire sauce
    5 1/2 cups water
    2 smashed garlic cloves
    salt and pepper to taste


Tips

I like the have a little spiciness added to the stew so therein lies the hot sausage. IF you cannot find hot sausage throw in a couple pinches of red pepper flakes. Also, if unable to add carrots halfway through cook time, just cut them down the middle and add at beginning and cut up when stew is done. I like to have a little crunch left in the carrots so it's all up to personal preference.


Directions

Cook the sausage in a skillet just until browned -- drain the fat. Add the onions and cook until translucent. Transfer to slow-cooker and add water, tomato paste and worcestershire sauce. Add to the water the cubed potatoes, sliced celery, smashed garlic and barley. Set slow-cooker to low for 6 to 8 hours. Add the carrots about halfway through the cook time.

Serving Size: Makes 6 1-cup servings.
