the recipe. Is that what you used? And barley can be sort of chewy even if well cooked.
If you want a sub, you could add orzo and only cook it for about 15 minutes at the end. Even rice.

Pearl barley has been polished to remove the bran and possibly even the endosperm layers, resulting in a pale, creamy-colored grain. It is less chewy and cooks faster than the hulled variety, but has less fiber, is less nutritious, and is not considered a whole grain. Most people are familiar with pearl barley, especially as an ingredient in beef-barley soup.
