Simmered Beef Cubes With Veggies and Barley
- In a large skillet, brown half meat in oil. Add salt and pepper. Repeat with the remaining beef. (I used a non-stick skillet and didn't use oil). Set aside in the crockpot and sprinkle with barley.
- In the same skillet, brown carrots, celery, mushrooms and onion. Add more oil if needed. Add salt and pepper. Add garlic, Dijon mustard and cook about 2 minutes. Deglaze with the wine and add chicken stock. Bring to boil and pour in the crockpot.
- Cook around 5 hours at low heat or 3 hours at high heat until meat is easy to tear with a fork. Sprinkle with parsley. Adjust seasoning.
