As is, this recipe would have been horridly bland. I started out with the original recipe, but I tend to taste as I go, and boy did this recipe need ALOT of help! This sin't a bad place to start, but I highly recommend adding a lot more seasoning than this calls for. I added garlic, ground red pepper, onion powder, a can of beef broth, italian seasoning, liquid smoke, a teaspoon of soy sauce, and worchestershire sauce. I also added a can of mushrooms (undrained) and 1/2 cup of barley (uncooked) to the pot. I let this simmer for close to three hours, watching it closely so it didn't scorch. I had to keep tasting it as it cooked and adjusting the amount of salt and black pepper since the fresh veggies and barley do tend to absorb the flavor The end product had amazing flavor, and was something that I would not be ashamed to server to guests with hot corn bread. YUM!
