On Isle Of Man (where I grew up!) this stew is called 'Manx broth'. It's beef and barley simmered with turnip and leek.


Serves: 8 

  • 3 litres water
  • 500g beef shank
  • 1/2 cup pearl barley
  • 1 carrot, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 turnip, peeled and chopped
  • 1 leek, sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the beef shank, barley, carrot, turnip, leek and celery. Season with thyme, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer gently over medium heat for 2 hours.
  2. Remove the shank from the saucepan and cut the meat into small pieces. Return the meat to the saucepan and discard the bone. Return to a boil and then stir in the parsley. Serve very hot.
