Really quick and tasty. Super fresh ingredients are the key here. Didn't have barley, so i used farro. Recipe easily substituted for personal preferences.

This is good, it definitely needed some more spices, I added ginger, red pepper flakes (I don't measure, just eyeball it) and one more clove of garlic and we enjoyed it.

I made this with ground turkey instead of beef and added about 1/2 cup of tomato juice. It was tasty but not very "pretty" so the kids did not eat it. May add julienne carrots over top for a little crunch...
