L.R. Beef barley stew

Submitted by: LRUSSELLFAMILY

Introduction

This is a very good hearty filling stew. The men in the family especially love it. You can substitute whatever ground meat you have on hand. This makes alot. If your family is small or your kettle is too small, you can easily cut recipe in half. This is a very good hearty filling stew. The men in the family especially love it.

Ingredients

    2 T. of some kind of fat
    3 cups chopped onions
    1 cup chopped celery
    3 cloves minced garlic
    2 cups carrots, cut into large chunks
    1 tsp. dried thyme
    1 tsp. dried rosemay
    4 cups chicken broth or bouillon
    4 cups beef broth or bouillon
    4 cups water
    1 1/2 cups pearled barley
    1 tsp. black pepper
    2 lb. ground veal , browned
    10 cups potatoes, cut into large pieces

Directions

In a large pressure cooker saute the onions, celery garlic and carrots in the fat. Add everything else except the veal and potatoes. If not using a pressure cooker, cook until barley is tender. Otherwise , afer jiggler starts jiggling, turn heat down far enough to keep at a slow jiggle and time for 17 minutes. Take off stove and reduce pressure as quickly as possible. I just tilt the jiggler until all pressure is relieved. Remove lid and add browned veal and potatoes. Replace lid and bring pressure up again. After it starts to jiggle time it for 3 minutes. Relieve pressure and serve. Yield 20 1 cup servings.

    Great recipe. I used ground chicken instead of the veal , used only 2 potatoes to reduce calories and added 1tsp. chipotle peppers canned in adobe sauce. Also added 1 Tbl. dried oregan and 2 Tbl. of chilli powder. Served it with 1 Tbl. of non-fat sour cream and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese....subl - 11/15/08
