  • Chop the celery coarsely as well.
  • Peel and mince the garlic.
  • Saute the onions and celery until softened in the oil; remove them to a large stew pot.

  • Add the water or broth, the barley and the bay leaves to the stew pot.
  • Peel and chop all the remaining vegetables into bite-sized pieces.
  • Add them to the stew in the order given, then add the tomatoes and the spices.
  • Simmer the stew until the meat is done and the vegetables and barley are tender.
  • Add a little more water if needed.
