 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2   lb           Round steak -- or stew
                         Steak
    3       md           Carrots
    3       md           Parsnips
      1/2   c            Barley, pearled
    8                    Potatoes
                         Stock or soup mixture (beef
                         Or oxtail)
                         Salt
                         Pepper
                         Mixed herbs
 
   Boil  some  water in a large saucepan,  sufficient to
   cover  the meat and have approx 1  left above.  Put
   in the chopped  (large chunks) meat, lower heat to
   keep the stew simmering,  put in the chopped/diced
   carrots and parsnips,  add herbs,  salt and pepper to
   taste, leave simmer for a while (say 20 mins). Add the
   peeled whole  potatoes  and  some stock/soup mixture
   or  cornflour  to thicken, keep the mixture simmering
   and stir occasionally, after about  1hr from
   start-time taste and check the potatoes.  If  it
   tastes ok then its done. Remember the best stews are
   left on for a long time 1 1/2 hrs or more. Contributed
