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

Yum, yum! This was a great dish for a cold night. I would of never thought to make barely instead of rice, but I did, and am sure glad I did! Great presentation, beautiful in fact with the red bell peppers and mushrooms! Thank you!

This was a truly excellent side dish that would make a great vegetarian main dish with some protein added. I used some frozen mixed peppers (that I had chopped and frozen) and vegetarian broth made with a high quality veggie bouillon. I was concerned that cooking time would not be enough for the barley because the directions on mine said to simmer it for over and hour, but this worked great. Great flavor and great texture, plus very pretty. This one will be repeated. Thanks!
