You guys often ask for slow cooker recipes and I am on a mission to fulfill your desires :) This dish is inspired by Pilaf recipe, but with a healthier twist to it. Barley is a whole grain that has a lot of great nutrients, it will keep you filled for hours, making it a great option for those who are trying to eat healthier.
You don't have to precook the meat and vegetables, although I do like to, since it adds extra flavors to the dish. But on days when I am just a busy bee, I would toss everything and let it do its magic. Also, I like to pre-cut everything the night before, that way it won't hold up my plans in the morning.
