Improving A Stew

Bestest way to get F-L-A-V-O-U-R into your stew:

(I've had a few good stews at cafes and restaurants, they've always had a flavour that I couldn't quite reproduce. Until now.)

The secret is to fry the onions first, in beef dripping or lard. Then add your barley, and drizzle a few tablespoons of water in to help the barley expand a bit, and fry until most of the barley has a slight tan, then add beef dredged in flour, and then build your stew on that.

Roasting / frying the barley makes all the difference. Who knew?
