      The family's new favorite! Tasty and flavorful!!!<br/>Was out of rice (used in old porcupine meatballs recipe) and had a bag of pearl barley...googled for a meatballs with barley recipe. Chose this recipe since I had all of the ingredients on hand. Serendipity!<br/>Now I keep a bag of the precooked meatballs (without the sauce) handy in the freezer for DELICIOUS quick meals and my family loves the leftovers!!!

      Certainly are very good meatballs, tender, juicy and full of flavour! I really did wonder how the barley would cook up but I needn't have worried, cooks perfectly as these meatballs simmer in a a tantalisingly tasty sauce!!! Lacking teriyaki sauce, I made my own, using Teriyaki Sauce, and I served these meatballs with Mashed Potatoes With Variations and Honey Roasted Carrots - Variations. My husband is THRILLED that we have leftovers for his lunch, in fact he sneaked some meatballs for breakfast :D. Thank you, I luv grubs, recipe made for PAC Spring 2012
