 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6       c            Water
    2       ts           Salt
    2       lb           Boneless lamb, cut into
                         Serving chunks
    3                    Cloves garlic, crushed
    1       c            Barley
    2       tb           Olive oil
 
   1>. Place the water, salt, lamb and garlic in a 4-quart heavy, covered
   saucepan. Bring to a boil, turn to a simmer, cover and cook for 2 hours.
   2>. Remove all from the pot, reserving the broth. Remove the fat from the
   broth and add enough water to make six cups. 3>. Place the barley in a
   grain grinder and grind very coarsley. You want something like groats or
   bulgar wheat in terms of texture. 4>. Stir the olive oil into the barley
   groats and place in the pan. Return the meat and broth to the pan and bring
   to a light boil. 5>. Simmer, covered, for 25 minutes or until the barley is
   soft and tasty and the liquid is absorbed. 6>. Serve with crusty Italian
   bread or with pita bread.
