Preparation

Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and spray a large shallow roasting pan with nonstick spray.

2. Put the celery root, carrots, parsnips, onions, and thyme in the pan and spray with nonstick spray and season with salt; toss to coat. Roast, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are browned and crisp-tender, about 30 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, spray a Dutch oven with nonstick spray, put in 1 teaspoon olive oil, and place over medium high heat. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Cook the beef, in batches, until browned on all sides, about 4 minutes. Transfer beef to a plate and do the next batch.

4. Return the beef to the pot. Add 5 1/2 cups of the broth, the garlic, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, 45 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, steam Swiss chard, until stocks tender, about 10 - 15 minutes.

6. After meat has simmered 45 minutes, stir in the mushrooms and barley and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Stir in the roasted vegetables and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the beef is fork-tender and the barley is tender, about 15 minutes, adding the remaining 1/2 cup broth if stew seems too thick. Finally stir in Swiss chard and serve.
