Really good! We haven't really ever had barley, so we weren't sure we'd like it, but apparently we do. I left out the mushrooms since we didn't have any, and used vegetable bullion with water (4 cups of it). As someone else mentioned, the barley browns quickly in the pan, so keep an eye on it. I have an oven safe skillet I use for things like shephard's pie, and I used it for this so I didn't have to transfer to another dish and dirty something else. Worked perfectly. At 1 hour and 15, the liquid wasn't quite all absorbed, so I turned the oven off and put the dish back in for another 1/2 hour, which resulted in the rest of the liquid being absorbed. I think this is great as is and doesn't really need any modifications, although you could certainly add some veggies or meat and get a main dish. Thanks for the recipe!
