One-Pot: Chicken/Pork and Barley Stew.

This is a test recipe, I will tell you. I am getting curious about all these One Pot recipes that seems to appear everywhere online.  One_Pot_Chicken_Pork_And_Barley_Stew (47)


500 grams minced pork (1 pound)
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp chili flakes
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp salt
10 fennel seeds
½ tsp basil
½ tsp merian
½ tsp oregano
½ tsp thyme

1 onion
5 cloves garlic
400 grams chicken breast (14 oz)
75 g tomato puree concentrate (2,5 oz)
1 chicken bullion cube dissolved in 1 liter boiled water
200 g pearl barley (7 oz)

Optional: 30 g Grada Padana (1 oz) 


  1. Mix the pork and all the seasoning with your hands. Cover in cling-film and refrigerate for as long as possible – overnight if possible.
  2. Now 1 hour before you are hungry you should dice up the onion and garlic and the chicken breast.
  3. Fry the onion and garlic and after 3 minutes add the pork.
  4. After 4 minutes you add the chicken.
  5. Let this cook until the chicken is barely done and then add the tomato and bullion water.
  6. Add the barley and put on a lid. Let it simmer, stirring occasional for about 45 minutes or until the barley is done. Be aware it could run out of water, then add a little more chicken broth or water.


It is important to emphasize that this dish needs a little adjusting along the way – it is a little dense. Maybe I will add some more vegetables next time. Well, I will definitely add vegetables! But for now, this recipe has 150 calories pr 100 grams. That is not all bad with the barley and all.

For dinner, I had 350 grams and I was a little too full so I will have 300 grams next time!
