Hello friends, it´s getting colder outside and we need our potato barley stew on the table. Actually, it was a “what do I have in the fridge stew”. I love these dishes the most, just look what you have and cook something delicious.
I always prepare the barley separately and then simply add it to the soup or stew. Because when cooking, the liquid is always a bit slimy and milky. After cooking put in a sieve and rinse briefly with clear water. The barley is also ideal for a salad.
If you try this potato barley stew or one of my other recipes, please leave us a comment how you liked it.
