Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 pound beef stew meat, cubed
  • 5 large potatoes, cubed
  • 1 sweet potato, cubed
  • 1 (16 ounce) can baked beans
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons dry onion soup mix
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon steak seasoning
  • 1/2 cup pearl barley

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat; cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the beef stew meat, and quickly brown the pieces on all sides. Stir in the potatoes, sweet potato, baked beans, ketchup, barbecue sauce, mustard, onion soup mix, seasoned salt, and steak seasoning, and pour in enough water to cover. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook on low heat until the beef is tender, 1 1/2 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in the pearl barley, and transfer the stew to a slow cooker set on Low until the barley is tender, about 12 hours.
