Barley-Onion Stew

Slow computer, tired, and short on time. Ya’ll get a recipe today.

In my defense, it is a Good Recipe.

1 cup barley
1 cup sliced baby potatoes
2 cups stock

Boil these ingredients with sage, thyme, rosemary, paprika (smoked, if you can find it), pepper, salt and basil. Boil until tender.

While those ingredients are boiling, toss about 2 cups of minced onion (throw some garlic in there, too) into a frying pan with a tablespoon of butter and a dash of olive oil. Saute the onions until browned, add a cup of Marsala wine and simmer. Make a gravy of one tablespoon flour whisked into two tablespoons warm broth. Pour into onion mixture and simmer till thickened.

Make sure the potatoes and barley are tender. Pour onions into the barley mix. Stir and add a handful of chopped leeks, spinach, mushrooms, bell peppers or any vegetables you like.

Serve with garlic bread.

Stew beef could also be used, I’m sure it would be a nice base for a stew. Enjoy!
