    2lbs/907g extra lean beef stew meat, trimmed of excess fat, cut into 1-inch pieces
    Pepper to taste
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour
    Nonstick cooking spray
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 tsp minced garlic
    1 cup sliced carrots
    2 tbsp snipped fresh parsley
    1/2 tsp dried thyme, crushed
    5 cups fat-free, reduced sodium chicken broth
    1 cup water

Season meat to taste with pepper and thoroughly coat with flour. In a 6 litre nonstick Dutch oven coated with nonstick cooking spray, cook meat over medium heat until browned, about 5 minutes.

Add onion and garlic, sauteing for several more minutes. Add carrots, parsley, and thyme; saute for 3 - 5 minutes. Add broth and water and bring to a boil, scraping bottom of the pan.

Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes. Add potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, mushrooms and barley. Return to boiling; reduce heat and continue cooking, covered, over low heat for 30 to 45 minutes or until the meat and vegetables are tender. Add peas, stirring for one minute.
