It's five stars if you add garlic and soy sauce :D I was kind of suspicious about the dill so I didn't add that either. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good. I substituted one of the onions with fennel. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good, but "JMickD" is correct; need sgarlic and soy sauce otherwise the dill is just odd. i also used 2 packs pre-sliced mushrooms. Next time i might try cooking the barley in a bit of mushroom stock yo boost the flavor. This is a very elegant, flavorful side - but easy on the dill! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I took this dish to a dinner where I was asked to bring a side dish. I followed the directions with the following changes/additions: I used real Barley only because I had some. It adds about 45 minutes to the cook time. I added 6-8 cloves of garlic to the butter that I cooked the mushrooms in. I drizzled about 3-4 tablespoons of Soy Sauce over the mushroom onion mix before I spooned in the barley. I added the dill at the very last moment while it was hot but before it was served. I sprinkled some fresh parmasean cheese over the top. The Soy Sauce (salty, Dill (Bitter, and Carmelized Onions (Sweet really combined well into a great but competing taste. I took home just a small amount as people had seconds, and had two requests for the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I didn't know if this dish would have enough flavor to it, but it was really good. The caramelized onions really worked. Will definitely try again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
