Number of Servings: 6


    3 lb Beef chuck, arm pot roast
    2 cup, chopped Onions, raw
    1 cup, chopped Carrots, raw
    4 fl oz Red Wine
    7 serving Tomato products, Hunts Diced Tomatoes w/ Basil, Garlic, and Oregano
    4 cup Beef broth, bouillon, consomme
    4 cup (8 fl oz) Chicken Broth
    132 gram(s) barley, pearl (uncooked) (by SHAYLA-SHAYLA)


Dry the beef pieces with some paper towels, and then season with salt and pepper.
Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in the large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown half of the beef, then add to the slow cooker. Repeat with the remaining beef.
Add 2 teaspoons of oil to the large skillet and saute the onions and carrots with 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cook until the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the wine, scraping up the brown bits (fond). Simmer until the wine is reduced by half, about 1 minute. Pour it all into the slow cooker.
Add the tomatoes and juice, beef and chicken broth, thyme, and pearl barley and cover. Cook until the beef is tender, about 6 to 7 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high.
Add the fresh parsley and serve.
