  • Cook and stir bacon in Dutch oven or stockpot on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 2 Tbsp. drippings from pan.
  • Add mushrooms to drippings in pan; cook on medium-high heat 5 min. or until mushrooms start to release their liquid. Simmer on low heat 15 min. or until mushrooms are golden brown and all liquid is cooked off.
  • Add dressing, barbecue sauce, beef, onions and carrots; cook and stir 5 min. or until onions are crisp-tender, adding garlic for the last minute.
  • Stir in water, broth, barley and bacon. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer on low heat 50 min. or until barley is tender.


A garlic press is a common kitchen tool used to extract both the pulp and juice from fresh garlic by forcing the garlic cloves through small holes in the press. It is a quick and easy way to mince fresh garlic. Garlic presses can be made of materials ranging from strong plastics to stainless steel.

How to Cut Onions with Fewer Tears

To avoid crying while peeling or slicing onions, chill the onions by placing them in the refrigerator or freezer for about 15 min. before using them. Or peel them under running water, then chop in the food processor. Both of these methods help reduce the amount of the volatile tear-causing sulfur compounds from the onions in the air, resulting in fewer tears!
