    Your Food is Amazing

    Posted by Lori on Jan 18th 2024

    I just wanted to take the time to tell you, your food is amazing. We had the Beef Barley Stew tonight and it was delicious. It's cold in CA (well by California standards lol) and I have been working non stop and had to participate in a training today all day. It was so awesome to put the stew in the crock pot while I had my lunch break and it was finished when I was done with my training. It so reminded me of my dad's stew. He's been gone for 18 years and for the first time since he left this earth I got some good stew. Thank you. I cant wait to try the other two. I will definitely be ordering from you all again.

    Beef Barley Stew

    Delicious. I browned beef with light flour in coconut oil then followed the label directions. It was delicious. My husband loved it. I only added about 1&1/2 c of potatoes and no mushrooms. ( I forgot ) beautiful hearty thick beef stew. I simmered for 2&1/2 to 3hours. Wonderful!!!

    Beef barley bean stew variation

    Posted by Amy Van D. on Jan 12th 2023

    Left out the turnips/potatoes, and added cooked rice at the same time as the mushrooms. Delicious and not quite as heavy as potatoes. Plus a great way to get rid of leftover rice from takeout! Win win!!
