This was the last meal I made in the freezer plan. And I have to tell you this recipe was GOOD.
I personally have never used barley in the slow cooker, but I really wanted to try it out.
I was a little worried that the barley would get mushy and my kids wouldn’t eat it. But nope, the barley cooked up perfectly and added just the right chew texture to the stew.
The flavor was perfect too…not too strong, nor too dull.
My oldest daughters favorite part was the cooked carrots, in fact she loved them so much that I wish I had added more carrots to the recipe. Perhaps next time I make this I will.
You can add other veggies to this recipe too…celery, potatoes, turnips…all of those sound yummy to me.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as our family did!
