This is a very tasty way to serve a very healthy grain that is often overlooked. I never use the mushrooms as I don't care for them and often add chopped carrots, red pepper, or grated zucchini.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a 1 1/2-quart Dutch oven or oven-safe pot over medium heat and cook onion until lightly browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Add celery and cook until starting to soften, stirring often, about 5 more minutes. Mix barley into the vegetables and stir until coated with butter. Fold mushrooms and green pepper into barley mixture; season to taste with salt and black pepper. Pour chicken broth into barley mixture and bring to a boil; cover casserole dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until barley is nearly tender, about 30 minutes; uncover casserole dish and bake barley until most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 15 more minutes. Adjust salt and black pepper before serving.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I really enjoy this and have made it several times. Like the others have said you can add any veggies you like to change the flavor. I also use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.

Easy to prepare, delicious the day after, and my picky little sister loved it too. This is a great dump recipe as well, pearl barley is begging for companions in the pot!

This is a very tasty dish and great base casserole if you want to add your own vegetables. I would maybe cut back on the butter a smidge as it seemed abit much. Otherwise, I'll definitely make this again.
