Basic Cooking Technique:
Cook slowly in stew or cholent.
I made beef goulash with this and everyone at the table commented on how tender and flavorful the meat was.
I had to cut the cubes (a full 2 lbs) into quarters. I used more of the ingredients than the G&B recipe indicate and I changed a few. Instead of diced tomatoes and tom paste, I used a whole can of tomatoes. I did use the bacon, but cut away most of the fat which was about 1/2 the package, I also added mushrooms and double the amount of barley. The finished product was delicious. I suspect it will be even better tomorrow. I plan to serve it with a great pumpernickel or rye bread to guests with a side of broccoli rabe and a good red wine.
