Ingredients

    Olive Oil, 4 tbsp
    Onions, raw, 2 cup, chopped
    Carrots, raw, 2 cup, chopped
    Celery, raw, 1 cup, diced
    Bay Leaf, 1 tbsp, crumbled

    Maggi, 1 serving (teaspoon)
    Brown Sugar, 3 tsp unpacked
    Garlic, 8 cloves minced


    Rosemary, dried, 1 tbsp
    Tomato Paste, .33 can (6 oz)/ or 2 oz tomato powder
    Beef stock, home-prepared, 15 cup

    Potato, raw, 3 cup diced
    Pearl Barley raw, 1 cup
    Pepper, black, 1 tbsp
    Kosher salt 1 tbsp (approx)

Directions

Makes roughly 15 1.5 cups servings

*Heat olive oil over medium heat in large stock pot, add meir poix (carrots, celery, onion) & bay leaf. Lightly salt each veg before adding... cook down, stirring occasionally, until the onions have started to wilt and turn translucent - approx 6 minutes.

*Add Maggi, brown sugar and minced garlic and cook an additional 10 minutes until the veggies have all started to caramelize, careful not to burn the garlic.

* Add stock, tomato paste/powder , rosemary and bring to a boil

*add pepper to taste, potatoes and barley, reduce to hard simmer and let cook 1 hour, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking or clumping...of barley

* taste for seasoning at the 30 minute mark, adjust if needed

*adjust for seasoning again at the end of the one hour cooking time and verify barley is well cooked... slightly al dente is fine for us as it softens over the next few days...others may prefer it falling apart done.

*remove bay leaf

*will hold for one week, well sealed in the fridge.

    Wonderful! Did not use Maggi (no idea what this is) and no rosemary. Made it in the crockpot, low 6 hours, and added the barley already cooked at the very end. Will make again. - 12/16/09
