METHOD

1
Rinse and dry fresh herbs and vegetables. Prepare your mise en place: Thinly slice mushrooms. Peel and dice onion. Halve celery lengthwise, and thinly slice crosswise. Pick and chop thyme leaves. Grate gruyere cheese.
2
Place a saucepot on high heat, and add 1 teaspoon cooking oil. When oil is shimmering add ground beef in 1/2-inch pieces, and cook without stirring until browned on bottom, 3-4 minutes. Turn and cook until browned on the the other side, 1-2 minutes more. Break up the pieces of beef.
3
Transfer beef to a plate or bowl. Decrease heat under pot to medium. Add mushrooms, onion and celery. Cook while stirring until onion begins to become translucent, 4-5 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and thyme, and continue to cook until tomato paste just begins to brown, 2-3 minutes.
4
Return beef to pot, and add 3 cups water, barley, bouillon cube and Bragg Liquid Aminos. Bring to a simmer, then decrease heat to low. Stir well, and run a wooden spoon or high-temp spatula along the bottom of pot to scrape up any flavorful bits (fond). Cover, and simmer until beef and mushrooms have become tender, 15-20 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired with kosher salt.
5
While stew is simmering, prepare cheese toast: Place an oven rack in middle position, and turn on broiler (or turn on toaster oven). Split ciabatta bread horizontally. Cover each half with cheese, put on a baking tray and place in oven. Broil, watching carefully to prevent burning, until cheese is melted and slightly browned, 2-3 minutes. Turn oven off, but allow toast to remain in oven to stay warm.
6
When stew is done remove toast from oven, and cut each piece in half. Divide stew between 2 bowls, and serve with cheese toast on the side. Enjoy!
