What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound beef stew meat, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 carrots, coarsely diced
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 8 cups beef broth

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking pearl barley
What To Do:
