Rinse and Soak your grains. If using pearl barley at least a couple of hours or you can do it over night. If using groats then over night.
Dice your vegetables and meat into bite size chunks. In a large pan add a teaspoon of oil. I use a metal casserole dish with a lid as my food is going to sit in the bottom oven and I hate washing up.
Fry the beef until it's just coloured and then add your vegetables. Fry until the onion softens then add your drained grains.
Add your herbs and seasonings, and finally the beef stock. If you are using a slow cooker then transfer the mixture into the pot and leave it to cook for several hours. But it will take at least 4 hours for the grains to soften and absorb the stock, and for the meat to fall apart. Check your seasoning and add more if needed. Serve warm in a bowl with a spoon and a smile. If you make it in advance to heat up, it tastes even better the next day.
