“As a diabetic, I find that Barley really keeps my blood sugar level. I came up with this recipe to use as a side dish to replace rice. This side dish works really well with beef. Try it with a grilled steak that has been marinated in olive oil, garlic and rosemary or the Ann Lander's Meatloaf recipe that's posted in Recipezaar.”
