Very tasty. A bit labor intensive, but worth it. Went great with a flank steak.

 

Review by Mikekey

I tried this recipe as a friend really loves barley and I want to make him something with it. DH and I are not lovers. However, this risotto is full of wonderful flavours! Between the two of us, we ate it all! We were amazed. I added fresh garlic toward the end of cooking the onions, heated the broth before adding and used a white zinfindel. Will definitely be making this again for us and our friend! Thank you Acadia for another wonderful recipe! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
