This was the last meal I made. I have never used barley in the crock, and wanted to try it out and this recipe was perfect. The flavor was not too strong nor too dull. My oldest favorite part was the cooked carrots and wished I had doubled the carrot amount. This would be an easy recipe to add potatoes or other veggies to it as well. May try the chopped potatoes to it, next time.
