- Note: My Mother-in-law always used the dried mushrooms from a Polish/Euro deli. She soaked them for 3 hours and sieved them from the liquid they were soaking in. If you can't find these, a flavourful mushroom should be used - not button mushrooms. shopping list

How to make it
- Place the meat, onion, barley, beans, carrots, parsnips, tomatoes and garlic in a crockpot and add water and beef cube or beef broth to cover by 3 inches.
- Cover and cook on low overnight.
- Note: When I use my crockpot, I often place a folded tea towel over the top to prevent any vapor from escaping. I have been surprised to see how this method speeds up the cooking process.
- In the morning add the mushrooms and potatoes and cook on low for an additional 8-10 hours, until meat is fork tender and barley and beans are cooked thoroughly.
- Season to taste.
- Makes 8 - 10 servings.

Lor, this is so wonderful and comforting! High 5!elgab89 in Toronto loved it
Made this and it was great - used shitake mushrooms and the flavour was quite strong so maybe I'll try something milder next time.
