This was my first time making barley and the results were great! I couldn't find a quick cooking Barley so I had to let this cook for about 45-50 minutes. The grains were tender and it had a nice creamy consistency. This worked well as a side dish and also makes a nice vegetarian option if you use vegetable stock.

This was easy to make and very tasty. I add a little more worchester sauce but we like it to b spicy.
