I gave it a 3 because while I do love all the ingredients that the recipe required it did not turn out as great...the barley had no flavor whatsoever. But it could have been because i did not use the porcini mushrooms and i cut the ingredients in half so it would yield 2 servings, but i did not cut the barley in half just used 3/4 of a cup...So maybe my mistake could have messed it up but still...it should've had at least some flavor to it..
this was SO gross. i love cooking light and this is the first recipe of theirs that i haven't liked. i will never make this again and would not recommend trying it.
Awesome recipe! Added sliced beef tenderloin, and served with CL bittergreens salad.
