I made this last night and with a few tweaks, it was great! I used 2 pounds of trimmed sirloin, cubed and coated it with corn starch. I heated a bit of oil in a pan and then added the meat. After it was a bit browned, I slowly added in 7 cups of beef broth (Progresso), which thickened using the corn starch, and let it cook for an hour with a bit of thyme, garlic powder, ground black pepper and a hint of salt. Then I threw in one pound of baby carrots, three stalks of celery, half an onion and a pound of mushrooms (all sliced and/or diced) with 3/4 cup of barley. With the last cup of broth, I added a bit more corn starch to make a slurry, turned up the heat, and it really made it nice and thick. I topped it with a bit of sour cream and we didn't think it added anything, so I don't think it's necessary. Mmmmm :)
