  • 5 1/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups pearled barley (10 1/2 ounces), rinsed
  • 1 medium leek, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced
  • 1 thyme sprig
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for serving
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter


  1. In a slow cooker, combine the chicken broth with the barley, leek, thyme, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Cook on low until the barley is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 4 hours. Discard the thyme sprig. Stir in the Parmigiano-Reggiano and butter and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the barley risotto into bowls and serve, passing additional cheese at the table.
