  • I followed the recipe exactly

    I followed the recipe exactly and found the barley was cooked enough. I would call it a soup rather than a stew and you need to place the steamer basket on top to stop the splatter.  I will definitely be making this again.. Cooking 4

  • I recommend you either soak

    I recommend you either soak the barley before following this recipe or you at least double the cooking time. If you double the cooking time it will become very thick so if you want it soupy add lots more water at about 10 minutes to go or just soak for hours before attempting the recipe. I was making this recipe for lunch for a friend. Luckily she was late so the extra hour I needed to cook it for didn't matter. I added left over roast chicken and it was yummy. Now I know about the barley I'll make it again with lots more water and time. I probably won't process the vegies as much although it made for great toddler food for my little girl.
