Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Slow-cooker directions: Substitute regular barley for quick-cooking barley. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add meat; cook and stir until meat is browned. Drain off fat. In a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker, combine meat and remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 8 to 10 hours or on high-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
