Beef and Barley Stew

Beef and Barley Stew Recipe:

2-14.5oz cans beef broth
2 Tbs tomato paste
2lbs beef stew meat (lean-bite size)
8oz pkg sliced white mushrooms
½ medium onion, chopped
½ c barley, rinsed and picked over
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
4 Tbs butter
½ tsp thyme
¼ tsp rosemary
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp fresh cracked pepper
1 cube beef bullion

In bottom of stock pot, melt butter on med-high. Add onions and cook until golden brown. Add mushrooms and cook for 2 minutes. Add stew meat and sear. Add remaining vegetables, toss for 1 minute and reduce heat to low. (caramelizing the veggies and meat is the key to this robust stew!)

Add beef broth, tomato paste, bullion cube and remaining spices, stir.

Cook on low for 3-4 hours on stove or 7-9 hours in crock pot.
