Mildura Weekly : Friday August 5 Vol 10 No 39
NEWS 17 FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 2016 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU POSSIBLY the best aspect of the cooler months is the hearty and warming foods we get to enjoy. Slow-cooking is one of the easiest ways to get the most flavour out of your dishes, there is very little preparation involved, and noth- ing beats coming home on a dark winter’s night to dinner that is already cooked, and the aroma filling the house. Lamb and pearl barley is a classic combi- nation that goes so well in a slow-cooker. The richness of the lamb, and nutty tex- ture of the barley, served with hearty seasonal vegetables is sure to warm the coldest of bel- lies this winter. To adapt this recipe to gluten-free, replace the barley with rice, rinse well then place in during the last two hours of cooking time. Slow-cooked lamb and barley stew 500g lamb shoulder 1-2 tablespoons olive oil 175g short cut bacon 2 carrots peeled and diced 1 large brown onion diced 2 cloves garlic crushed 2 sprigs of rosemary 1 litre of chicken stock 400g diced tomatos 1/3 cup pearl barley rinsed in water 2 bay leaves Salt and pepper to taste Method: Heat oil in frypan and add bacon, carrot, on- ion and garlic, fry until golden and tender. Remove contents from pan and brown the lamb in batches. Place lamb and vegetables in slow-cooker, and remaining ingredients. Place lid on slow-cooker and place on high for four hours. Serve with seasonal green vegetables.
