Most Commonly Asked Questions with Answers 

I don’t have organic barley at the house, but I have a quick cook pearl barley, what should I do?  You can use the ready cook version by adjusting how you cook this recipe. It takes only 10 minutes to prepare quick cook barley, so add your barley the last 15 minutes of cooking versus in the beginning.

I don’t like Bock Beer, what should I do?  There are two clear choices on this matter, either add a beer you enjoy–or omit the beer completely by adding more low sodium beef broth or water in place of beer.

I have children, is this safe to serve my little ones for dinner? I am not qualified to tell you how to raise your children; I never received  “The Parent of the Year Award,” so this one’s on your Mom or Dad, I can tell you that alcohol burns when foods are cooked. It mostly becomes a flavoring versus a meal that’s going to inebriate you or your child. If desired, add more low sodium broth or water in place of the beer.

I do not condone alcoholic beverages, and I would never add them to my food, what should I do? This one’s simple, omit it and replace it with low sodium broth or water in place of the beer.

I don’t eat some of the ingredients you have listed, what should I do? Replace the elements you do not eat with ingredients you enjoy or omit the offending ingredient. Recipes are merely a guideline, and my method is not etched in stone, so feel free to enjoy your dinner your way.

 Gmo’s concern me… I have read some corn may be considered GMO, what do I do? The corn is an optional listed ingredient, and you can omit the corn.
