mystery-crockpot foods question

Hi guys, I have a mystery I just know one of you can solve.  I made a
version of the crockpot grains that someone posted, (thanks!) and  noticed
a familiar and unpleasant smell/taste that I sometimes get when I cook
stews/soups in the crockpot.  My dh thinks that it happens when I use
parley in the crockpot, I am wondering if it is the combo of barley and
tomato.  Guess I can experiment by making things with and without barley
and barley and tomatoes. but am hnoping someone will have the answer.  I
can't describe the smell/taste in any definitive way, it is just "off", not
like anything spoiled, just an odd flavor that is unpleasant.
