1. Place barley in a large, heavy skillet. Dry toast over medium heat until lightly toasted and fragrant, stirring occasionally (10-12 minutes).
2. Slowly stir in the broth and add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until liquid is absorbed and barley is chewy (20 minutes).
