- 1/2 Cup pearl barley
- 1 1/2 Cups diced carrots

- 1 envelope onion soup mix, optional
Place fresh or frozen beef stew chunks, pearl barley, carrots, tomatoes & onion soup mix (if desired) into a 4 qt. slow cooker.

Twenty minutes before serving stir in thyme and salt & pepper, if desired. (Remember herbs get stronger as they cook).
A 1/2 chuck roast can be used instead of the stew chunks. This recipe freezes well.
