Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the carrots, celery and onion. Cook until softened, 4-5 minutes. Add the beef, salt and pepper. Cook until browned, 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add the farro, beef broth and diced tomatoes. Increase heat to high until it reaches a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if desired.

Notes

*You can use uncooked farro in this recipe. If doing so, increase the amount of broth by two cups. Use 1 cup of farro and add it when you would have added it in the above instructions. Bring it to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer and cook until farro is tender, 20-30 minutes, depending on the type of farro you’ve got.
