550g lean lamb rump steaks, fat trimmed, cut into 2cm pieces

1 brown onion, finely chopped

2 carrots, chopped 2 celery sticks, chopped

1 tsp dried rosemary

½ cup (100g) pearl barley

300g pontiac potatoes, chopped

400g can diced tomatoes

2 cups (500ml) salt-reduced chicken stock

Heat half the oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add lamb and cook, in batches, turning, for 2–3 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a bowl.

Meanwhile, boil, steam or microwave beans until just tender. Drain. Sprinkle stew with parsley and serve with beans.

Three tips for a tasty stew

Brown meat on all sides to seal in the juices before adding to a stew.

Cut meat and veggies into similar-sized pieces so they cook evenly. Add softer veggies near the end.

If there is too much liquid, remove all meat and/or vegetables and simmer until reduced.
