  1. Great winter warm-up meal. The marsala wine caught my eye here, so will have to try. Plus barley is a nice switch from potatoes!

    Made this yesterday with Elk meat. Delicious! The family loved it. I did add half yukon potatoes due to a few members of the family not appreciating the taste of sweet potatoes. My daughter spiced it up with some hot sauce.
