Jackal'd Barley and Steak Stew step by step
- You will need AT LEAST a 6 quart slow cooker!! Should have mentioned that earlier….
- After that, start by sautéing the onions, garlic, and mushrooms lightly. Only enough to give them a nice color. Salt and pepper them as well..
- After sautéing to what you consider a nice color, dump the ingredients into your slow cooker..
- Now, in the same skillet, comes the meat. You're aiming for a good sear, nothing more. nothing less. (don't worry, the crock pot will get it out of the bacteria DANGER ZONE! quickly enough.).
- Add Everything else in your slow/crock/cooker/pot, stir (like a boss) until the beef bouillon is dissolved..
- Put the lid on and set your crock to high for 3-4 hours, then low for the remainder of 4 hours..
- Now, of course you're gonna take the lid of every now and then to smell it, I don't blame you!! BUT!! And this is a Kardashian sized but, stir it since you're there. #1 rule of slow cooking is not to take the lid off, I'm not a nazi!! But ya gotta stir it to get it back up and running again..
- When the 7 hour mark hits, sample and adjust salt to taste, I actually just liquefied a few more bouillon and add it (I'm also not scurred of a lil MSG!) If done adjustment is needed, put the lid back on and give it 30 more mins for the flavors to spread out..
- After that its ready! Find you an awesome side to go with it, Kiasfolly got a few good ones if ya don't mind checking her out! (think really hard about that tater salad or the caesar dressing…).
- At the end don't let anything go to waste!! freeze it, take it to the neighbors, hobos, whatever!! But please don't waste your food! Jackal out!.
