A nice change from rice or potatoes, with the added benefit of extra fiber. This recipe is from Light and Tasty.

Fantastic recipe! My entire family loved it. I used olive oil instead of butter. Will make often!

This is a very nice alternative to rice. I ommitted the onion and used seasoning instead and added some fresh brocoli florets. It makes a lot which is good for a family of 4!

The only time I used barley was to make soup.This is a great way to make a meal with it.It's good and it's filling.Instead of butter I used canola oil and cut it down to 1 cup of barley.I wish I would have discovered this recipe many years ago when I was feeding my 4 sons who were always hungry!!! Thank so much for posting;I will be making this again;my DH also really enjoyed it. Sage/Rita I made this again; started off with 1 pd ground turkey and ended up with a complete meal.I highly recommend this recipe! Rita
