Barley Beef Skillet
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 20 min.
We added beef bouillon, smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, basil, oregano... and cooked it a bit longer to soften the barley. Delicious
I made Beef Barley Skillet from Everyday Day Slow cooker cookbook page 103. Beef Barley skillet is similar to this recipe. One difference that might make people who commented Happy, is the addition of peppers and chili sauce. I used chili powder. This recipe is similar to one I have made for a long time. Good substitutes are ground turkey and TVP. This recipe would be easy to make in an instant pot.
I added a can of stewed tomatoes and some mushrooms
Replaced tomato with a can of Ro-Tel (drained), which added a perfect amount of heat. I also used tomato paste and adjusted the water. Perfecto!
This was so easy and yummy! I added an extra tomato and used a 15 oz can of tomato sauce since that's what I had and just reduced the water. A keeper for sure!
Such a shame that the previous person posting said they through away the entire thing and likely wasted good food when that is so unnecessary. Rule of thumb: recipes are best used as merely a guideline and then to add to it your own tweaking of spices and flavors that you like. I added more garlic, garlic powder, Mrs. Dash, paprika, bay leaf, and a few dashes of worcestershire. Hot garlic bread and green salad made it a great meal here.
Sorry, but this just didn't work for us. I had my reservations before I made it but was persuaded by the high reviews. More reviews are needed to get a true picture. Italian seasoning just doesn't work here. Had to throw it all out.
Made this tonight with ground turkey and 3 carrots and no zucchini. I did like the addition of the parmesan cheese as suggested. It's pretty tasty and filling for what seems to be a healthy meal.
