"This is a lovely recipe with a 'down home' appeal for those of us who like barley. I serve it with English muffins."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
salt and pepper to taste
This is a recipe with potential. For my batch I used chunks of beef rather than ground beef; I added a celery stalk cut in small pieces; some rosemary, marjoram and thyme; about 1/4 cup of cooking wine and a bay leave. It turned out to be a very fragrant dish and quite tasty!
this recipe was bland and tasteless, unattractive looking and has been removed from my recipes.
Love this recipe with a few modifications. I added about 1 1/2 teaspoons of chopped fresh garlic and some chopped mushrooms.
Tried this recipe this evening, was good. One other poster mentioned it was a bit bland and I have to agree. Going to try it again tho, and add some tomato chunks, turnip, and bump up the amount of soy sauce and molasses.
I modified the recipe a bit to suit my family's tastes, but highly approve.
Good basic recipe. Definitely one you want to change up! I used 1 full cup of barley, 1 (14 oz) can of chicken stock, and seasoned my meat while cooking it. I also added some chopped cherry tomatoes. Next time I will add a lot more veggies! Chard or kale would be great and I would definitely up the carrots to at least 2 c. (maybe even a full pound) to make it a more complete one pot meal. Serves more than just 4. I also suggest cooking everything in a dutch oven on the stove top so you can just slide it into the oven without dirtying another dish.
Really, really good! I added 3 stalks of celery, sliced, some garlic salt and upped the Soy Sauce and Molasses to 3 TBSP each. Very easy and very good.
Based on other users suggestions, I added 1 cup more of carrots, upped the soy sauce and molasses to 3 T each, and used beef broth instead of water. At first I thought it was too sweet, but then it grew on me. This recipe has great potential, it just needs a little tweaking. Upping the carrots was a good call. Next time I'd go back to 2 T molasses and maybe use worcestire instead of soy sauce
