    I was in creative mode yesterday morning, this wound up being a HUGE hit with my family last night so thought I would pass it along.

    KATY'S BARLEY CORN STEW

    1 can creamed style corn
    1 cup white wine
    1 sweet red bell pepper diced very small
    1 small white onion diced very small
    1.5 lb pork steak ( i think they call these loin chops in store)
    Janes crazy salt to taste
    Ground red Pepper to suit you
    1/2 tablesoon dried Thyme
    (or maybe two sprigs of fresh - I would have prefered using fresh but was out)

    Slow cooker on low all day.

    About an hour before serving cook 1 cup (dry measure) of barley, when done stir into pot of pork.

    This made a hearty fall stew that will be remade in our house.
    Oh yes served 4 BIG appetites, would have easily done 5 or 6 smaller

    That sounds good!

    What is Janes crazy salt?
    I don't think I've seen that in the stores here in the Midwest.

    I may try your recipe with just plain old salt,pepper & herbs : 9

    Quote:Janes Crazy Mixed up Salt, it's my secret ingredient that really makes things pop just perfect. Most groceries do carry it you just have to look really hard at the seasoned salt section, the bottle is white.

    My family swears they hate creamed corn . . . lol I never serve it right out of the can so they have no idea how often they really eat it, trust me they had no idea it was in there. If you are going to use fresh corn, I would throw the cobs in the stew as well while cooking, to get all of the "milk" out. Then take out right before serving.
