EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Barley is an ancient grain known for its use in Scotch broth, beer and whiskey. Natural food stores and co-ops stock barley in many forms, including flakes similar to oatmeal. This recipe calls for pearl barley, which is sold at grocery stores. Pearl barley has had the husk and bran removed before being steamed and polished.

For easier prep, use 1 pound of cubed beef stew meat in this recipe.
