  • About


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • ½ pound mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup pearl barley
  • 2 cups Beef or Chicken Stock


    1. Preheat oven to moderate (350°F.).

    2. Cook the onion and mushrooms in the butter until onion is wilted and mushroom juices have evaporated. Add the barley and brown lightly. Pour the mixture into a buttered casserole. Pour one cup of the stock over the barley and cover. Bring to a boil.

    3. Bake the casserole, covered, for twenty-five to thirty minutes. Add remaining stock. Continue to cook, covered, for fifteen minutes or longer, until liquid is absorbed and barley is tender.
