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
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.
Serving Size: Makes 6 1-cup servings.
