This is a one pot dish but make sure it is a large pan ( with lid) capable of containing all of the ingredients
Half fill the pan with cold water.
Place the stewing beef into the pot and add salt and black pepper.
Gradually bring the pan to the boil (important to do this slowly).
As the pot comes to the boil you will notice that a brown foam starts to form on the top of the pan, you need to skim this off the top of the pan (take your time as this may require 2 or 3 goes) - discard the foam.
Once you are happy that the meat has finished giving off the foam add the Onions, Stock cubes, Pearl Barley, and the oregano and place the lid on the pan.
Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and slow simmer for 45 mins.
Then add; Carrots, Parsnip, Celery, Leeks, and Turnip,
Replace lid and bring back to the boil, then reduce heat and slow simmer for a further 45 mins.
Then add Potatoes and again bring back to the boil. Reduce heat and slow simmer for a further 30 mins stirring occasionally.
Serve in hearty portions in bowls - best served with fresh crusty bread.
Full of goodness and delicious - hope you enjoy.
Take your time, the longer it simmers the better. Tastes even better the following day, and can be frozen and reheated in the microwave.
