      Delightful! I love the texture and flavour of barley, and it sooo good for you too! I cooked this in my rice cooker: I started off the butter and onion, and after about 10 minutes I added the barley and chicken stock. I also added the carrot at this time. Later I lifted the lid briefly and put in the red pepper. For the red pepper, I used some Italian red pepper I roasted and bottled last fall, as red Bell pepper often gives me indigestion. It was perfect! Served with stir-fried cabbage and a broiled pork chop.

      A fantastic pilaf that's actually better for you than rice. I especially liked the addition of red bell pepper and thought it separated this recipe from the rest. This is going to become a staple in my house. Thank you.

      Great recipe! I think it might be okay with even 1 cup of pearl barley. Tasty and chewy overall.
