This is an absolutely horrible meal. Use rice only.

I decided I wanted to make this at about 6:00 at night, so I adapted it to the stove top instead of the slow cooker. I had to keep a close eye on it to avoid burning toward the end, when there wasn't a lot of liquid, but in general it was very easy. The flavor was great, and easy to adjust to my preferences.

Absolutely loved this. I used vegetable broth to make this a vegetarian meal. It was so easy and had so much flavor. I'm not sure what type of barley I used (maybe pearled?), but mine was done in only 3 hours. For the last hour, I cooked on low with the lid halfway off to evaporate the excess liquid. Served on corn tortillas, which was great, but I can't wait to have it on a salad for tomorrow's lunch.

Loved, loved, loved this. The filling was super yummy and very filling. All of us enjoyed it, even my kids who tend to be picky. It was so easy to make -- only about five minutes of prep time.

A family favorite! Make sure to watch at the end, because it is easy for it to burn in the crock pot if you're not careful. We like the leftovers with scrambled eggs for breakfast burritos.

Totally loved it. Lots of flavor and so easy in the crock pot. We liked it with the cilantro. I also enjoyed just eating the filling piled on a plate of lettuce and topped with sour cream and cheese. No tortilla necessary.

I really tried to like this, but it just didn't do it for me. We, too are trying to incorporate more whole grains into our diet. Thanks for submitting it though, maybe it is too hard to teach an old dog new tricks.

Amazing! We so enjoyed this and it was incredibly easy!!! I didn't change a thing to the barley mixture, but I used four large, burrito-sized tortillas. There are tons of leftovers, so I'm looking forward to enjoying this dish again. I also added avocado to the table.
