  • 1 medium to large onion, diced (4.4 mg)
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced thinly (84.2 mg)
  • 2 medium stalks of celery, chopped (64 mg)
  • 10 ounces Crimini mushrooms, chopped or sliced (16.8 mg)
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (trace)
  • 3/4 pound beef stew meat or chuck cut into small bite size pieces (200.73 mg)
  • cup pearled barley, cooked according to package directions (13.5 mg)

Prepare the barley according to package directions.

Prepare the first 3 vegetables and saute in the olive oil using a 3 to 4 qt. pan. Cook until the vegetables soften for about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes or until their juices flow. Remove the vegetables to a bowl.

Place meat in the same pan and brown on all sides. You may season with no salt seasonings and pepper at this time. When thoroughly cooked about 6 to 8 minutes add the vegetables back into the pan.

Add the no salt chicken broth and the cooked barley.

Simmer for another 30 minutes and enjoy.
