    Beef bones
    Cubed stew meat (chuck, brisket, shoulder, etc.)
    Cubed potatoes
    Cubed yellow onions, with peel
    Uncooked beans (kidney, navy, pinto, black)
    Pearl barley
    Salt
    Pepper
    Paprika
    Water to cover, plus 1/2"

    Optional:
    Garlic
    Chick peas
    Chili flakes
    Raw eggs, intact (in the shell, washed)

    I usually cook it on low overnight, in a cast iron dutch oven, on the weekend. It beats any alarm clock I've ever used. Try to make only as much as you'll eat as it doesn't make for good leftovers. Be careful with the eggs if you add them so as not to crack them. Stir several times early on. Enjoy!
