Summerhill Market Beer & Barley

Chris Klugman, Summerhill Market's executive chef has created this tasty main course.


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine onion and vegetable oil. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, until onion is soft. Add beer, barley, broth, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes, adding more beer if necessary.

Place a medium skillet on medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, garlic, thyme and butter. Cook, stirring, for 4 minutes. Add cooked mushrooms to barley mixture, along with cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

Serves 4 as an appetizer
