About this recipe: Pearl barley in this stew gives it texture and bulks out quantities to bring down costs.
If making this stew in advance, add a little more stock or water when you reheat it, as the pearl barley will have soaked up some of the sauce
Absolutely gorgeous. Had to add a bit more herbs and seasoning than are mentioned to get it to where I wanted, but over all it was a great change. - 29 Jul 2014
